Doing God's Work...Magnificently

I love Elder Jeffrey R. Holland...and I love how he tenderly encourages, loves and provides hope for mothers everywhere.

Every evening around 11pm my hubby and I get the girls up to visit the bathroom. I remember my Mom doing this for us as kids, when we were little ones. I am grateful to have a husband who assists me in this little service for our girls. My girls are completely asleep when we take them to visit the bathroom. They are also incredibly cuddly, and cute in my mother bear opinion.

It's nice to know all these seemingly small, insignificant acts of service, and love we do for our precious little ones add up to doing God's work. Knowing that as a mother, and as a father working to do our best, we are essentially doing His work is magnificent, stunning, HUGE!

When it comes down to it, nothing else really matters, or even measures up to this simple, profound role. I am a mother...and that rules!

I watched this the other day. It's wonderful. Motherhood truly is divine. I'm grateful for good-mother friends like you to inspire me in my own motherhood!
