The Honored Place of Woman
“The great strength of a good woman—a Saint, if you will—is her personal testimony of the Savior and her faith in his spokesmen, the prophet and the Apostles of Jesus Christ. If she follows them, she will have the countenance of Christ for her beauty, the peace of Christ to support her emotionally, the Savior’s example as a means to solve her problems and to strengthen her, and the love of Christ as the source of love for herself, her family, and those about her. She can be sure of herself as a wife and mother and find joy and fulfillment in her role in the home.” -As quoted by Ezra Taft Benson, “The Honored Place of Woman,” Ensign, Nov 1981, 104
Yesterday along with cute cards, a fun scavenger hunt, and homemade coupon books, I was given this beautiful statue of Christ. Birch included the above quote with his own thoughts on motherhood. I love this quote and the way that it reminds me that I am uniting with Christ to raise our children. Now the trick is finding a safe place that we can all see the statue but not touch!
