#ItWasMom: Teaching about the importance of women and mothers

By Mormon.org

Motherhood is the highest, holiest service assumed by humankind. While it can often seem like a daunting responsibility, it also provides a glorious opportunity to influence the lives of others. 

Many mothers know that whenever life is overwhelming, they can turn to God, their Heavenly Father. Because motherhood is a divinely appointed calling, mothers are enabled by help from above in times of need. Through sleepless nights, dark days, and seemingly impossible and difficult circumstances, the prayers of righteous mothers have been a source of unparalleled divine power in homes, communities, nations, and even the world.
