Highest Nobelest Work

“During my professional career as a doctor of medicine, I was occasionally asked why I chose to do that difficult work. I responded with my opinion that the highest and noblest work in this life is that of a mother. Since that option was not available to me, I thought that caring for the sick might come close. I tried to care for my patients as compassionately and competently as Mother cared for me.

“Many years ago the First Presidency issued a statement that has had a profound and lasting influence upon me. ‘Motherhood,’ they wrote, ‘is near to divinity. It is the highest, holiest service to be assumed by mankind. It places her who honors its holy calling and service next to the angels.’3

“Because mothers are essential to God’s great plan of happiness, their sacred work is opposed by Satan, who would destroy the family and demean the worth of women.”    Elder Russell M. Nelson

We must all learn to view Motherhood in the same way, to cherish it and honor it as the most noble work there is.  When we do, society will finally begin to heal for mothers will be fulfilling their rolls, their callings, and raising their real jewels (children) up to serve God.  How do we ban together?  How do we start a new women’s movement?  One that will inspire women to rise to their true potential?
