He was listening!

Motherhood: An Eternal Partnership with God

Heavenly Father must be listening. (See here.)
This was truly what I needed to hear.

I am so grateful to be a mother. It is not always easy, and some days I feel as if I am the worst and not capable of being as great as I need to be. But I am thankful for the reminder that I am NOT doing this alone. Heavenly Father hears and answers my prayers, and is there for me and will help to strengthen me in my calling as a mother as I pray to, counsel with, and follow Him. 

Being a mother is hard.. but it is so worth it. 

I love Addie and Ezra so much! I am so grateful that I get to be a mother to these sweet children and that I get to learn from them each and every day. I am thankful for my calling as a mother, and I have a greater determination to be the best mother I can.


  1. Thanks for sharing that video. As mothers, I think we all have times where we are struggling and worrying that we aren't doing a good enough job. I remember when Bridget was just a few months old and I was really struggling with the adjustment to motherhood, Elder Ballard gave a talk in General Conference that was an answer to my prayers and exactly what I needed to hear. Here's the link to it if you like to read it:

  2. Just in case that link doesn't work since it's super long and not hyper-linked, the talk is called Daughters of God by Elder Ballard in the May 2008 Ensign.

  3. Thank you so much for sharing that Kimberly! I really appreciate it! :)
