"There is no one perfect way to be a good mother. Each situation is unique. Each mother has different challenges, different skills and abilities, and certainly different children. The choice is different and unique for each mother and each family...What matters is that a mother loves her children deeply and, in keeping with the devotion she has for God and her husband, prioritizes them above all else."


- M. Russell Ballard

"Motherhood is the one thing in all the world which most truly exemplifies the God-given virtues of creating and sacrificing. The mother who, in compliance with eternal law, brings into the world an immortal spirit occupies first rank in the realm of creation."


- Aaronic Priesthood Manual

Ooooh, that last one gave me chills. And don'tcha just LOVE Sister Beck? LOVE her. She spoke at our stake conference last week and I wish I had brought a notebook to take notes. The words out of her mouth are golden.
