Mothers and Daughters
I want to tell you about an experience that I had. Today my Visiting Teachers came and shared a message with me. If you do not know what Visiting Teachers are, click here to view a 2 minute video that will explain it to you.
They shared a message with me about a talk recently given entitled "Mothers and Daughters". In it M. Russell Ballard talks about the relationship between a mother and her daughters. Really, if you are a mother, or a daughter (that would be all women), I invite you to read it or re-read it. (Men are welcome to also)
After thinking about the things that they shared all day, tonight as we tried to read some scripture to my daughter. I paused. Rather than send her quickly off to bed, I took her on my knee, and I told her that I knew that Heavenly Father lives. That He loves us. That He knows my name, and her name, and Husband's name. I told her that He wanted us to make good choices so that we could live with Him again.
It was sweet. It was simple. It was short. It was a special moment where we strengthened our bond.
I hope that all mothers will give this gift to their daughters, to share with them their beliefs.
