Women of God can never be like women of the world. The world has enough women who are tough; we need women who are tender. There are enough women who are coarse; we need women who are kind. There are enough women who are rude; we need women who are refined. We have enough women of fame and fortune; we need more women of faith. We have enough greed; we need more goodness. We have enough vanity; we need more virtue. We have enough popularity; we need more purity. ~ Margaret D. Nadald
Our Father also gifted us with the nature to nurture, keen sensitivity to the Spirit, selflessness, discernment, and heroic faith. No wonder our Father placed us at the heart of the family and thus at the center of the plan of salvation. We are the Lord's secret weapon. ~ Sheri Dew
This clip has been widely seen by many people, but it bares repeating. The message that hit me hardest is that President Hinckley remembers the moments when he sat playing quietly while his mother read the Bible and his father read or told stories from memory. This particular story had such an impact on him that he was able to remember it through the years, and subsequently share it with us. I wonder how much he thought of this story through the years, and how it's message changed him for the better each time he implemented its teachings.
