Hey Cool LDS Girls... just in time for Mother’s Day... A new book that features three of Elder M. Russell Ballard’s talks about women of the Church has just been released.
The book is called “Daughters of God”. In the book Elder Ballard covers topics of various aspects of womanhood, including motherhood, divine daughterhood, and individual value outside of marriage and family.
Some suggestions Elder Ballard makes:
* Live more in the moment rather than rushing to get the next activity or item on your checklist.
* Don't overschedule you or your family's lives because "families need unstructured time in which relationships can deepen and real parenting can take place."
* Find time to cultivate your own talents and interests because "if you are not setting aside a little time for what replenishes you, you will have less and less to give to others."
* Pray for your children, asking specifically how God would have you raise them.
So for you cool LDS Girls who are future wives and mothers of the church, what better counsel can you get than from an apostle of the Lord. AND if you are still trying to figure out what to get your cool LDS mom for Mother’s Day... this might be just what you are looking for!
