A Mothers Influence on Her Family

     With Mother's Day approaching, I have been thinking about the Influence my wife has on our family.  I am amazed at her capacity to do all she does, demonstrating by every action how much she loves the Lord.  I have watched how, through her love and commitment she has changed each of our lives for the better.  As a mother she is such a great example to our children, showing patience, guidance, and a love for her family that binds us together.  I have witnessed numerous times the ability of my wife to listen to the promptings of the Spirit, and tenderly apply those impressions, blessing the lives of our children.  Our Heavenly Father has given mothers such a unique ability to touch the lives of their families.  God has granted gifts to mothers that no man will ever be able to replicate.  Tenderness, compassion, patience beyond any I have and the ability to calm each of our troubled souls in times of need.  I know that my wife as a mother is more valuable than all the treasures of the earth, and I thank God everyday for her influence and companionship in my life.

  1. My Mother is also an incredible example to me. She has taught me so much about being a mother myself. I find myself often reflecting on what my mother taught me. I appreciate her example and loving patience with me. Some are not as fortunate as I am, so I'm glad my mother has been such a loving motherly influence on those around her who need that in their lives.
