As one whom his mother comforteth, so will I comfort you; and ye shall be comforted in Jerusalem. —Isaiah 66:13
I say to mothers collectively, in the name of the Lord, you are magnificent. You are doing terrifically well. The very fact that you have been given such a responsibility is everlasting evidence of the trust your Father in Heaven has in you. —Jeffrey R. Holland
