Quote of the Week

"Be a Mother who is committed to loving her children into standing on higher ground than the environment surrounding them.
Mother's are endowed with a love that is unlike any other love on the face of the earth."
-Marjory Pay Hinckley

How do you do this with your children? How to you teach them to stand on higher ground? I love this quote because rather than saying teach, or tell, or make, or any number of other verbs, she uses the word love implying that by loving your children you are shaping them through your unconditional devotion.

Homework: Grab a journal, write a blog, tell a friend about a time your mother guided you through love, or how you shape your children using love. I'd love to hear responses so post a comment or leave a link to your blog!
