Modern Day Martha's

"Some mothers in today's world feel 'cumbered' by home duties and are thus attracted by other more 'romantic' challenges. Such women could make the same error of perspective that Martha made. The woman, for instance, who deserts the cradle in order to help defend civilization against the barbarians may well later meet, among the barbarians, her own neglected child."
— Neal A. Maxwell (Wherefore, Ye Must Press Forward)

Application for today: Think about things you may be cumbered by. What can you change?

  1. I have learned that the hardest thing about motherhood is not choosing between good and evil, often it is choosing between good and good. We can be surrounded by so many good things that want and need our attention, that it can be confusing to make the best choice of all.


Hope you have a brilliant day!!
