One of my favorite two weekends of the year is in full swing over here! We spent the day listening and watching church leaders uplift, motivate and direct us (if you missed it, check it out here). I am so grateful to be a member of a church with modern day revelation, to help guide and direct us in these tumultuous times we are living in. We live in a world with so much wickedness and evil around us. I know that if we listen to these chosen leaders that we will indeed find great peace and joy in this life.
I am also so grateful for these wonderful leaders in reminding me of my potential and greatest worth. One of my favorite talks today was from Elder Jeffery R. Holland, entitled Behold Thy Mother. I am grateful for the sweet reminders he spoke to my soul about the great call and work I am engaged in every day with bearing and raising my children. Some days are hard. Most days are exhausting. But, as Elder Holland said, "it is worth it then, now, and forever."
A few more favorite quotes from his talk (along with some updated bump pictures)...
"No love in mortality comes closer to approximating the pure love of Jesus Christ than the selfless love a devoted mother has for her child."
“Be peaceful. Believe in God and yourself. You are doing better than you think you are."
"You are saviors on Mount Zion, and like the Master you follow, your love ‘never faileth’ I can pay no higher tribute to anyone."
I am so grateful and humbled be given sweet spirits of our Heavenly Father, to love, nurture and teach them here on this earth. It is the greatest call I will ever receive. I am also so grateful for the leaders I have that help guide us during this time and especially that love us mothers!!
