Pure love

“Pure love is an incomparable, potent power for good. Righteous love is the foundation of a successful marriage. It is the primary cause of contented, well-developed children. Who can justly measure the righteous influence of a mother’s love? What enduring fruits result from the seeds of truth that a mother carefully plants and lovingly cultivates in the fertile soil of a child’s trusting mind and heart? As a mother you have been given divine instincts to help you sense your child’s special talents and unique capacities. With your husband you can nurture, strengthen, and cause those traits to flower.”

Richard G. Scott, “The Eternal Blessings of Marriage”, April 2011 General Conference.

One thought on “Pure love

  1. I must admit that as a mother I struggle with “have I done enough?” syndrome. This address gave me hope and courage. My children’s successes (or failures) in life are probably not entirely dependent on my motherly skills alone. I make mistakes. Lots of them. But I HOPE that when they are grown that they will have no doubt that I LOVE them…and above all else that I LOVE GOD and their FATHER even more.
