The Greatest Power

Yesterday was a special day. A historic day. An inspiring day. We were blessed with the opportunity to watch a Special Broadcast: The Work of Salvation. And we were doubly blessed because we were actually able to watch and listen and feel the spirit. Mr. Devin slept through the first half and then sat quietly and ate granola bars and snacks for the rest. If you didn't have a chance to watch it last night, I hope you will take the time to do so. It was very touching and uplifting!

Most of the meeting was about missionary work--sharing the thing that I love the absolute most with those that we love the most. Pres. Packer spoke about how to teach. And I absolutely loved this quote!! I decided to make a printable to have in our home. Because sometimes I need a little reminder that being a stay-at-home mommy is the greatest thing I can ever do. Teaching Devin is more valuable than anything the world could give a working woman.

"I have come to know that everybody is a teacher. In the church we talk about being called to a position and being set apart to teach Sunday School or any other Priesthood auxiliaries. The Priesthood, I think, sometimes prides itself with having the power to doing the teaching. They don't come near the power that's given to a mother. The greatest teaching in the church is done by the mothers." --Pres. Boyd K. Packer (Special Broadcast: The Work of Salvation. about 1.37:30- 1.38:30)

I just love this!!
The power of mothers... and the ability to teach!
A good reminder of my worth.

I thought this one sentence was a good stand alone quote too.

As was this one. :)
