Powerful Nurturing

Do you ever have days when you feel discouraged, and even start to question if the work you do in your home truly matters?

Have you ever stepped into the kitchen to cook, thinking "I can't believe it's time to cook again" ?

Have you ever faced a large pile of laundry, a sink full of dishes, or a dingy bathroom with dismay?

Well, if you haven't, I don't know why you're visiting this blog!


I have felt the emotions above COUNTLESS times, and constantly need to remind myself of the gift that mothering is to our families, ourselves, and yes-- to the glory of God.

A WONDERFUL article I read this afternoon by LDS Relief Society President, Julie B. Beck is keeping my spirits up today, and I'd like to share it with all my readers.

Remembering the power we have in our nurturing is a great way to start the new year, don't you think? Read the whole thing-- it's not long. I know you'll love it! :-)


  1. im not sure if this is on purpose or not but when i click on those links im sent to a google doc with the scene breakdown from comedy of errors.....

    not exactly the uplifting article i was needing/ expecting!

  2. Oops!!! Thank you, Lindsey. The links are now FIXED! :-)

  3. Great article. As I rethink menu planning and meal choices it is important to be reminded of the additional nurturing that takes place at meal time and as we serve our families. I'm looking for that balance of nutrition, simplicity, and inviting foods.

    Thanks for your comments on my blog. They really help!

  4. I love Sister Beck. Thanks for sharing
