I loved this Talk: Daughters of God that was given in April 2008, by Elder M. Russell Ballard.
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.Elder M. Russell Ballard
It is important to note that Elder Ballard titles this talk to include all women of the Church-ALL of the daughters of God.
Mothers, and all who mother, have the unique opportunity to work towards developing the Christ-like trait of charity. Working with young children who rely on mothers for almost everything can definitely try one’s patience and energy reserves.
Yet, as we mother our children, and all children in the realm of our influence, we can, with the help of the Lord, develop charity for them. Young mothers, and mothers of teens and young adults, this talk is worth listening to. Elder Ballard gives some powerful and heartfelt insight that applies to all of us. And I love how he cheers us on in this journey!
