The Perfect Mother

"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."

~M. Russell Ballard (LDS Apostle)

It's a talk from General conference one year ago, April 2008, called "Daughters of God" in the Sunday afternoon session.

I love that quote! So often women feel left out if they don't fit into the 'mold' that is the cultural expectation of the Church. I'm so glad to see the efforts that are being made to help all women feel included and embraced even if they don't have the 'typical' family situation or need/want to work.

I LOVE THIS! Thank you for posting it. What a great reminder that we're all given different life circumstances, so we are to just love and embrace instead of compare and criticize one another.

LOL... I was Googling my username and nLDS just to see what came up, and this is what I found. :D

I really do love that quote. And yes, the source given by Brasileira is correct. :)
