Jackson and I are taking the marriage and family Sunday School class right now. This is the first time we have both been free during Sunday School when the class has been offered. Last week we discussed motherhood. One scripture we talked about really stuck with me. It is D&C 64:33 and part of 34
Wherefore, be not weary in well-doing, for ye are laying the foundation of a great work. And out of small things proceedeth that which is great. Behold, the Lord requireth the heart and a willing mind.
In context, the scripture is talking about missionary work, but I think it equally applies to parenting. What greater work is there than laying the foundation of righteousness in a child? It is an overwhelming, but wonderful responsibility.
