mothers who know group

I hope everyone has a friend like Brook.

Last month she challenged me to join a group of women who were committing to learn by heart the talk "Mothers Who Know" by Julie B. Beck. Each week we will focus on a different paragraph and spend time memorizing, pondering, and **gulp** applying.

I have decided to create a series of prints to go along with each paragraph. Anyone can join along in whatever way they would like. Create in whatever way you can. Consider this an invitation to all of you readers to join with me.

This week I am focusing on the paragraph "Mothers who know bear children." My favorites:

“ the eternal perspective, children—not possessions, not position, not prestige—are our greatest jewels.

Women who desire and work toward that blessing in this life are promised they will receive it for all eternity, and eternity is much, much longer than mortality. There is eternal influence and power in motherhood.”


  1. Obviously you probably aren't sleeping these days taking on things like this while you're so busy working.

    I think you should print your prints and give a set to me. Especially this one, so cute. :)

    I find it incredibly easy to get caught up in the mundane and forget the eternal influence of motherhood. I think I will read this talk more regularly...

  2. I want to be a mother. I'm getting impatient. In fact, this post almost made me cry...

    That print is really adorable!

    Thanks for the hug. Hug yourself back from me.

  3. Very cute post (picture) Rachel! You are amazing...of course.;)
