Something to share

E. T. Sullivan once wrote these interesting words: “When God wants a great work done in the world or a great wrong righted, he goes about it in a very unusual way. He doesn’t stir up his earthquakes or send forth his thunderbolts. Instead, he has a helpless baby born, perhaps in a simple home and of some obscure mother. And then God puts the idea into the mother’s heart, and she puts it into the baby’s mind. And then God waits. The greatest forces in the world are not the earthquakes and the thunderbolts. The greatest forces in the world are babies.”1

I read this quote in a talk by President Hinckley and it helped me remember the value of good motherhood. I've had a challenging time with my kids over the last few weeks and this helps. Just wanted to share...

Thanks for that quote, Robyn. I think I am going to print it and leave it in my scriptures since Sacrament Meeting seems to be my most trying hour of the week.
