“In speaking of mothers generally, I especially wish to praise and encourage young mothers. The work of a mother is hard, too often unheralded work…Do the best you can through these years, but whatever else you do, cherish that role that is so uniquely yours and for which heaven itself sends angels to watch over you and your little ones….Remember, “To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven.”
— Elder Jeffrey R. Holland, “Because She Is a Mother”, Ensign, May 1997
