"Motherhood is not a burden to be borne, it is a privilege to be enjoyed. It is not a trial of endurance, it is a time of celebration." Winnie Dalley


Women of God

"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

Yes, yes, and yes to all of the above! I have finally had a chance to sit down and read through all of the quotes, and I have been so touched by the testimonies of all these strong and valiant women. I want to be like them and I want to stand with them. I just pray that Father will help me become like them and reach the true potential he has blessed me with. I hope I will be wise enough and faithful enough to rise above the din of the world and stand with those who love the Lord each and every day. Thanks, Mary, for taking time out of your busy life to share your light and testimony with us! You are a great example to me. I love you, dear Mary!
