In honor of the upcoming Mother’s Day and my mom’s birthday (which is tomorrow!) I want to dedicate this drawing to all mothers out there, especially my own. Our mothers are INCREDIBLE. Really. They have the closest thing to Godlike love for their children, and I know they sacrifice so much for our sakes.
I know that the love of his mother helped Jesus Christ prepare to take upon him the pains of the world as well. We do not worship Mary because she was still just a woman, but we do reverence her and honor her as “the most beautiful and fair above all virgins” (1 Nephi 11:15) and truly a choice woman. With the help of our mothers who teach the gospel of Jesus Christ to their children, our homes can become a sacred place and a refuge from the winds of the world (see Helaman 5:12). Mothers – please know that your work is of the most sacred duties given to mankind and that you are making a huge difference on the future! We love you and thank you for everything!
