Words of Wisdom

I've been trying throughout the day to think of something sweet and profound to write on the topic of motherhood. But after cleaning the house, bathing the children, changing cloth diapers, refereeing squabbles, practicing for a song the girls and I are singing in church tomorrow, folding laundry, and eating chocolate cake I decided to reread some of my favorite talks on mothers instead. Now I'm sharing them with you. Enjoy! Oh, and . . .

Happy Mother's Day!

Do Well Those Things Which God Ordained
by Virginia U. Jensen "Children, who are our literal legacy from the Lord, require our diligent, prayerful, loving mothering."
Because She is a Mother by Jeffrey R. Holland "If you try your best to be the best parent you can be, you will have done all that a human being can do and all that God expects you to do."
Families - It's About Time by Virginia U. Jensen "Mothering does take lots of time, but you can't do everything. So, prayerfully consider your family's needs and personalities. Prioritize your tasks according to your circumstances. Then, attend to those needs as best you can in the time you have. Value your family time because it is priceless."
Behold Thy Mother by Thomas S. Monson "Who can measure a mother’s grief? Who can probe a mother’s love? Who can comprehend in its entirety the lofty role of a mother? With perfect trust in God, she walks, her hand in His, into the valley of the shadow of death, that you and I might come forth into light."
The Touch of Human Kindness
by Bruce C. Hafen ' "Home-work" is the Lord's work.'
