Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day to all of you women! Here is a wonderful video on mothers. I also put some of my favorite quotes about mother's below. Enjoy!

"Motherhood is more than bearing children...It is the essence of who we are as women."
-Sheri L. Dew

"Satan has declared war on motherhood. He knows that those who rock the cradle can rock his earthly empire. And he knows that without righteous mothers loving and leading the next generation, the kingdom of God will fail."
-Sheri L. Dew

"To be a righteous woman is a glorious thing in any age. To be a righteous woman during the winding up scenes on this earth, before the second coming of our Savior, is an especially noble calling. The righteous woman's strength and influence today can be tenfold what it might be in the more tranquil times. She has been placed here to help to enrich, to protect, and to guard the home - which is society's basic and most noble institution.

We have made covenants. We made them before we accepted our position here on earth...We committed ourselves to our Heavenly Father, that is He would send us to the earth and give us bodies and give to us the priceless opportunities that earth life afforded, we would keep our lives clean and would marry in the holy temple and would rear a family and teach them righteousness. This was a solemn oath, a solemn promise."
-Spencer W. Kimball
