Mother’s Day is a special day for everyone. Where would the world be without mothers? There are many ways to honor the many mothers, grandmothers, aunts, and other mother figures in our lives on Mother’s Day. One way is by listening to and sharing these LDS Mother’s Day talks. All of these talks are perfect for Mother’s Day!
Are We Not All Mothers? By Sheri L. Dew
“Motherhood is more than bearing children. … It is the essence of who we are as women.”
Mother’s Day is a day of celebration for many, but for women who are not able to have children, it can be a day of sorrow. This talk is a wonderful reminder that motherhood truly is more than bearing children, and that motherhood
Our Sacred Duty to Honor Women By Russell M. Nelson
“Thank the Lord for these sisters who—like our Heavenly Father—love us not only for what we are but for what we may become.”
This talk was for the boys and men as a reminder of the importance of women in our lives and how grateful we must be for them. Women have a built-in ability to love others and see the good in them.
A “Mother Heart” By Julie B. Beck
“By developing a mother heart, each girl and woman prepares for her divine, eternal mission of motherhood.”
As women grow and learn, they develop a ‘mother heart’ that makes them the loving, caring, amazing person that they are. Women are given these characteristics by God so that they may raise His children.
Mothers and Daughters By M. Russell Ballard
“In these last days it is essential—even critical—that parents and children listen to and learn from one another.”
This day and age, the love and respect for motherhood is not what it used to be! That’s why it’s so important for women to rely on and learn from one another. Men cannot do what women were designed to do, it’s up to the women to take care of one another and preserve the sanctity of motherhood.
The Joy of Womanhood By Margaret D. Nadauld
“Daughters of God know that it is the nurturing nature of women that can bring everlasting blessings, and they live to cultivate this divine attribute.”
One thing that women should always remember is that God loves us and trusts us so much, that He gives us His children as infants to love and care for. With this gift comes much responsibility, as it is up to us to raise His children to the best of our abilities.
Behold Thy Mother By Jeffrey R. Holland
“No love in mortality comes closer to approximating the pure love of Jesus Christ than the selfless love a devoted mother has for her child.”
A mother’s job never ends. A mother carries a baby, and then carries them through life. It’s a selfless, neverending job. And it’s the most Christlike thing we can do in this lifetime.
Love Her Mother By Elaine S. Dalton
“How can a father raise a happy, well-adjusted daughter in today’s increasingly toxic world? The answer has been taught by the Lord’s prophets.”
There’s one thing a father can do that will benefit his daughter more than anything else, and that is to love her mother. Respecting, loving, and treating her mother right will teach the daughter many life lessons, and set her up for finding a good life partner in the future.
Mothers Who Know By Julie B. Beck
“There is eternal influence and power in motherhood.”
A mother who is rooted in Jesus Christ and Heavenly Father will know how to raise their children in a world that is constantly becoming more and more evil. Mothers are teachers, nurturers, and leaders. Staying strong in their faith will give them guidance as they raise their kids.
Your Greatest Challenge, Mother By Gordon B. Hinckley
“I know of no better answer to [the] foul practices that confront our young people than the teachings of a mother, given in love with an unmistakable warning.”
Raising children is the hardest, most challenging task a mother will have in her lifetime. However, it is also the most rewarding and joyful experience. Mothers have the power to shape their child’s future if they parent them with love and Christ’s teachings.
Mother Told Me By Bradley D. Foster
“Perhaps the reason we respond so universally to our mothers’ love is because it typifies the love of our Savior.”
A mother’s love for her children is the closest thing to Christ and Heavenly Father’s love for us. This is a great explanation as to why we have such deep, unconditional bonds to our children, and them to us.
“Because She Is a Mother” By Jeffrey R. Holland
“If you try your best to be the best parent you can be, you will have done all that a human being can do and all that God expects you to do.”
Mothers are naturally selfless and always puts their children’s needs before their own. But God doesn’t expect us to be perfect mothers, all He asks is that we do our best.
“Behold Thy Mother” By Thomas S. Monson
“In this spirit, let us consider mother. Four mothers come to mind: first, mother forgotten; second, mother remembered; third, mother blessed; and finally, mother loved.”
Mothers have the power to influence decisions even when they aren’t there in person. Just remembering ones mother is enough to alter mindset for the better.
Daughters of God By M. Russell Ballard
“There is no role in life more essential and more eternal than that of motherhood.”
Mothers sacrifice so much to raise their children. But that sacrifice is key to raising good children who value God, their parents, and themselves.
