"Motherhood is a . . . sacred dedication for carrying out the Lord’s plans, a consecration of devotion to the uprearing and fostering, the nurturing in body, mind, and sprit, of those who kept their first estate and who come to this earth for the second estate "to see if they will do all things whatsoever the Lord their God shall command them" (Abraham 3:25). To lead them to keep their second estate is the work of motherhood, and they who keep their second estate shall have glory added upon their heads forever and ever."
Well I was looking at a LDS website about motherhood. I have so many unanswered questions about being a mom and what mom's should do. My own mother really wasn't ever around while I was growing up and as I got older our relationship dwindled farther and farther apart. Mostly because I chose to live with my dad when the got divorced. After a recent huge falling out with my mom I'm petrified to have children cause I don't know what mothers do and I'm scared of having a relationship whith my children like I have with my mom. (Don't get me wrong, I love my mom, but I hate some things and desicions she has made with her life that has affected our whole family. And my sanity.) I don't know why this quote touched me the way that it did, but it has given me a hope being a good mom as long as I follow my father in heavens plan for me and I always put Christ first in my family's life. I know it sounds sappy, but I just felt it in my heart that things will be ok for Jason and I's family.
