As I was reading through the March Ensign, a couple of quotes stood out to me that I wanted to share. It was in the article "What Mothers Can Learn from the Savior"
I think that motherhood is such a rewarding position and responsibility. It's what I always knew I wanted to be.
However, I also know that at times it can be overwhelming. The demands, the doubting of self, wondering if we are doing all we can and helping for the good of our children.
I know we all go there from time to time, feeling doubt.
President Gordon B. Hinckley said, "......The greatest job that any mother will ever do will be in nurturing, teaching, lifting, encouraging, and rearing her children in righteousness and truth. None other can adequately take her place."
That brings peace to me. To know that my job is vital. Nothing else outside of my family responsibilities are as important. No worldly pursuits, accomplishments, etc. It's a reminder that I need to be present and aware and selfless to my children.
And when we are fearful in our doubting,
President Boyd K. Packer said, "If you are helpless, he is not. If you are lost, he is not. If you don't know what to do next, he knows. It would take a miracle, you say? Well, if it takes a miracle, why not?"
Trusting, asking and relying on the Lord help make us stronger and give us guidance so we are better able to stand up to the demands and become happy and joyful in the role of motherhood.
