To the Women We Love

We are the people we are today because of the women—mothers, aunts, sisters, friends—who showed their love by showing up. Motherhood is a divine role, and God helps all women as they love and nurture others.  

Are we not all mothers?

While the most common definition of motherhood is bearing children, it is so much more than that. Motherhood is about loving and nurturing others. All women have God-given gifts to help them in these efforts, whether they have their own children or not.  

Motherhood is divine

Motherhood is a divine role. We can be a mother (noun), and we can mother (verb). To mother is a calling from God for all women. Just as God does, mothers help their children navigate life with love, guidance, and support. Mothers help make hard decisions, encourage in hard times, and love no matter what. 

God loves mothers

Motherhood requires sacrifice and can be exhausting. God sees the daily efforts of mothers everywhere, no matter how large or small. He is there to help as you try to be the best mother you can.

Motherhood can feel like participating in a race without a finish line: slow at times, frantic at others, exhausting and exhilarating all at once. No matter your circumstances, Heavenly Father promises blessings as you participate in this essential work of salvation. Elder Jeffrey R. Holland assured, “You will be magnified, compensated, made more than you are and better than you have ever been as you try to make [an] honest effort.”
