I had the lucky chance to meet Connie at a conference last weekend. She is darling and very pregnant. I'm hoping that she's already had that baby #7. That's right, she is very well qualified to write a book on motherhood.
This darling little book is the perfect size for an inspirational book for mother's day. I purchased two copies for the mothers in my life and I have to admit that I read one of them through before I wrapped it up.
There are many, many, gems of wisdom in this little book. But one section in particular caught my eye. Connie writes about how to balance the many adventures in your life as a mother, always keeping motherhood first.
"Trust in the Lord. Trust His promises, "for he will fulfil all his promises which he shall make unto you" (Alma 37:17). He knows that fulfilling your role as a mother will bring you the greatest joy now and in the future, so trust in His wisdom to know what will keep it first." Page 43.
Don't you just love that? I am always struggling to balance motherhood with the other roles in my life.
Happy Mother's Day to all of you lovely ladies--mother's or not!
