“In this age when more and more women are turning to daily work, how tremendous it is once in a while to just stop and recognize that the greatest job that any woman will ever do will be in nurturing and teaching and living and encouraging and rearing her children in righteousness and truth. There is no other thing that will compare with that, regardless of what she does. I hope that the woman of the Church will not slight their greatest responsibility in favor of a lesser responsibility. To the mothers of this Church, as the years pass you will become increasingly grateful for that which you did in molding the lives of your children in the direction of righteousness and goodness and integrity and faith.”
Teachings of Gordon B. Hinckley, (1997), 390.
