I hope you wonderful mothers (present or future) had a wonderful Mother’s Day! I did. My husband let me sleep in, and my kids came and cuddled me on the bed while they gave me the cutest cards they made. My 10yo, Aurora, gave me some bath salts that she made in Activity Days, and my husband bought me my favorite coconut milk ice cream. So good! He also made breakfast and dinner. Church was lovely, and the primary age kids sang Mother I Love You to me during sacrament meeting. My 7yo, Wendy, sat on my lap and sang it quietly to me during one of the talks. I just love being a mother!

I feel so blessed to have the connections to uplifting and inspiring resources. I LOVE the Mormon Messages Channel on YouTube! There is also the Mormon Messages for Youth Channel as well. Grab a tissue, and enjoy these videos.

I needed the reminder from this video that I am a partner with God in raising His children. I love being a mother, and on the hard days I need to remember that He is with me as much then as He is when it’s easy.


What a beautiful reminder that we are daughters and sons of our Heavenly Father.

When God wants a great work done in the world or a great wrong righted, he goes about it in a very unusual way. He doesn’t stir up his earthquakes or send forth his thunderbolts. Instead, he has a helpless baby born, perhaps in a simple home out of some obscure mother. And then God puts the idea into the mother’s heart, and she puts it into the baby’s mind. And then God waits. The greatest forces in the world are not the earthquakes and the thunderbolts. The greatest forces in the world are babies.
– E. T. Sullivan

My friend, Ronell, e-mailed me the link to this video this morning. What a beautiful way to be reminded of Sister Beck’s talk in the last General Conference as well as be inspired to do those things that I should be doing as the mother of my children and as a daughter of God. Enjoy!
