Mother’s Day is a special day as we celebrate the lives of those wonderful women who have birthed us, raised us, taught us, and cared for us throughout our lives.  Whether they be our mothers, aunts, grandmothers, and sometimes even our teachers or other women who have had a positive influence on us, we are sure to let them know that they are loved and appreciated.

As we think about and celebrate these special women, however, we tend to forget those who lived before us.  Our pioneer women from the scriptures.  Personally, sometimes I tend to forget how many amazing women, many of them mothers, there are in the scriptures.  We often hear about the men who have been noble and strong…who sacrificed much to help bring to pass the work of God. In the video below, missionaries from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints remind us that Mother’s Day isn’t just for thanking those who have been good influences on us today, but also the kind-hearted and loving mothers who have blessed many lives since Mother Eve.

The video below was sent to us by Elder Staheli and Elder Hillyer, who are serving in the Kingston area within the Canada Toronto Mission.

 

The Canada Toronto Mission of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is celebrating its Centennial year and we’ve got shirts and accessories to commemorate the special occasion.  You can get one for yourselves at our TogatherSaints shop at Etsy.com.   They also make great gifts!
