General Authorities' Views of Motherhood

"Motherhood is the greatest potential influence either for good or ill in human life. The mother's image is the first that stamps itself on the unwritten page of the young child's mind. It is her caress that first awakens a sense of security; her kiss, the first realization of affection; her sympathy and tenderness, the first assurance that there is love in the world. . . . She who rears successfully a family of healthy, beautiful sons and daughters. . . deserves the highest honor that man can give, and the choicest blessings of God

President David O. McKay

Women of the Church*

As Prophet of the church, President Gordon B. Hinckley gave this address in the October 1997 General Conference of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints

"You sister are the real builders of the nation wherever you live. For you have created homes of strength and peace and security."

To Mothers in Zion*

An address given by President Ezra Taft Benson as the Prophet of the church.

"No more sacred word exists in secular or holy writ than that of mother. There is no more noble work than that of a good and God-fearing mother."

The Role Of Womanhood*

Talk given by President N. Eldon Tanner when he served as First Counselor in the First Presidency. It was later made into a pamphlet distributed by the church. This also includes a message from the First Presidency when President Spencer W. Kimball was prophet.

"There is nothing more sacred than true womanhood."

Because She is a Mother*

Talk given by Elder Jeffrey R. Holland in the April 1997 General Conference.

"I wish to praise those motherly hand that have rocked the infant's cradle and, through the righteousness taught to their children there, are at the very center of the Lord's purposes for us in mortality."
