Life has its seasons

“Women today are being encouraged by some to have it all–generally, all simultaneously: money, travel, marriage, motherhood, and separate careers in the world…Doing things sequentially–filling roles one at a time at different times–is not always possible, as we know, but it gives a woman the opportunity to do each thing well in its time and to fill a variety of roles in her life…A woman may fit more than one career into the various seasons of her life. She need not try to sing all the verses of her song at the same time.”

James E. Faust, “A Message to My Granddaughters: Becoming ‘Great Women’,” Ensign, Sep 1986, 16

“To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under heaven.” Ecclesiastes 3:1
