The Divine Role of Motherhood–Sacrament Meeting Talk 5/14/2017

The Divine Role of Motherhood

I have women in my life who live in all kinds of circumstances. I know women who have never married, women who have no children of their own, women who have struggled mightily with infertility, women who have suffered numerous miscarriages, women who have lost a child to death, women whose children have strayed and broken hearts. I know single mothers, widows, seemingly perfect moms and moms who struggle daily just to deal with life.

Sacrament Meeting Talk–February 28. 2016

 

Adam and I have been asked to talk about the scriptures, that's it, no other direction. As I thought about what I might say that hasn't been said a million times or that would help us to understand the scriptures better, my thoughts turned to my grand daughter Natalie. Natalie loves music, she sings all the time. She learns music easily and if there is anything you want her to learn, teach it to her through music!

I asked Natalie what her favorite primary song was and she said I like to look for rainbows. Now Natalie is barely 4 years old and she is obsessed with My little Pony. Her most favorite character is Rainbow Dash. So I…
