My mom acts like a child
Some mothers experience pain because of the children they have borne; others feel pain because they do not bear children here. About this Elder John A. For reasons known to the Lord, some women are required to wait to have children.
This delay is not easy for any righteous woman. Some of us, then, must simply find other ways to mother.
And all around us are those who need to be loved and led. Eve set the pattern. In addition to bearing children, she mothered all of mankind when she made the most courageous decision any woman has ever made and with Adam opened the way for us to progress. She set an example of womanhood for men to respect and women to follow, modeling the characteristics with which we as women have been endowed: heroic faith, a keen sensitivity to the Spirit, an abhorrence of evil, and complete selflessness.
She loved us enough to help lead us. As daughters of our Heavenly Father, and as daughters of Eve, we are all mothers and we have always been mothers. And we each have the responsibility to love and help lead the rising generation. How will our young women learn to live as women of God unless they see what women of God look like, meaning what we wear, watch, and read; how we fill our time and our minds; how we face temptation and uncertainty; where we find true joy; and why modesty and femininity are hallmarks of righteous women?

I was thrilled recently to see one of my youth leaders for the first time in years. How many young men and women are desperate for your love and leadership? Do we fully realize that our influence as mothers in Israel is irreplaceable and eternal?

It meant a tornado was coming, and I was instantly afraid. Recent horrifying events in the United States have underscored the fact that we live in a world of uncertainty. Every time we build the faith or reinforce the nobility of a young woman or man, every time we love or lead anyone even one small step along the path, we are true to our endowment and calling as mothers and in the process we build the kingdom of God.
Look around. Who needs you and your influence?
