"Women of God can never be like women of the world."

“Women of God can never be like women of the world. The world has enough women who are tough; we need women who are tender. There are enough women who are coarse; we need women who are kind. There are enough women who are rude; we need women who are refined. We have enough women of fame and fortune; we need more women of faith. We have enough greed; we need more goodness. We have enough vanity; we need more virtue. We have enough popularity; we need more purity.”

― Margaret D. Nadauld

This has been my favorite quote since I was 18. I heard it in a Mission Prep class and had a handout that I kept on one of my binders. I had lost it and had no idea who said it or where to look. Well I just found it and it wasn't hard to find. Sometimes truth is easier to find than we think.

"...Walking away"

"Holiness means walking away from the philosophies of man.  It means looking to prophets for spiritual counsel, not celebrities or experts, who may be appealing but who all come packing personal motives and an arsenal of half-truths.  It is deadly to take counsel from anyone whose primary motive is to build his or her own kingdom."

"...Faithful prayers of a righteous mother."

"There are few things more powerful than the 
Faithful prayers of a righteous mother."
Boyd K. Paker

Heavenly Father is so mindful of all his children. Mothers have been given the sacred responsibility of raising their children in love and righteousness. "Children are an heritage of the Lord." (Psalm 127:3)
The Lord has trusted us with His children, not only to teach them but to be taught by them. This life is a test, a test to see if we can through trials and persecution follow the teachings of Christ. Children will test and try our patience, if in these moments we can be patient and turn to the ultimate parent for help our prayers will be answered. Our children will learn to love the Lord and to turn to Him when they have trials.

"Be ready..."

"Be ready always to give an answer 
to every man that asketh you 
a reason of
 the hope that is in you"
