On Mothers & the Word

Like watering a garden, teaching truth is most effective a little at a time, every. single. day.

Today - Mother's Day - one of the young women in our ward shared her own mother's conversion.  She described how her mother's desire to create a stronger connection between her children and God pushed her to look for a religion that would help her in that endeavor.  She told of the day when their family was baptized and what it was like to be sealed in the temple as a forever family.  The last sentence of her talk was the most powerful: "Joseph Smith may have brought the gospel back to the earth," she said, "but my mom brought the gospel to me."

My mother did the same. And I want so fiercely to do that for my boys.
