Happy Mothers Day to all!

Women Have a Great Influence for Good

Posted: 08 May 2009 12:00 AM PDT

"Too frequently, women underestimate their influence for good. Well could you follow the formula given by the Lord: 'Establish a house, even a house of prayer, a house of fasting, a house of faith, a house of learning, a house of glory, a house of order, a house of God' (D&C 88:119)."In such a house will be found happy, smiling children who have been taught, by precept and example, the truth. In a Latter-day Saint home, children are not simply tolerated, but welcomed; not commanded, but encouraged; not driven, but guided; not neglected, but loved."

Thomas S. Monson, "The Spirit of Relief Society," Ensign, May 1992, 101–2

That is such a good reminder. We should all have that printed out and hanging where we can read it often. Thanks for the reminder of what it means to be a mom.
