They allow less media in their homes, less distraction, less activity that draws their children away from their home. Mothers who know are willing to live on less and consume less of the world’s goods in order to spend more time with their children—more time eating together, more time working together, more time reading together, more time talking, laughing, singing, and exemplifying.

"i know it is hard for you young mothers to believe that almost before you can turn around the children will be gone and you will be alone with your husband. you had better be sure you are developing the kind of love and friendship that will be delightful and enduring. let the children learn from your attitude that he is important. encourage him. be kind. it is a rough world, and he, like everyone else, is fighting to survive. be cheerful. don't be a whiner."

"I plead with you young women to please be more accepting of yourselves, including your body shape and style, with a little less longing to look like someone else. We are all different. Some are tall, and some are short. Some are round, and some are thin...in the Kingdom of God the real you is more precious than rubies."Elder Holland"
if you feel UNclean Unloved Unhappy Unworthy Unwhole remember all that is unfair about life can be made right through the atonement of Jesus Christ. -Elder Timothy J. Dyches, October 2013 General Conference
“Ask yourself, 'How did God bless me today?' If you do that long enough and with faith, you will find yourself remembering blessings.

“The future of this world has long been declared; the final outcome between good and evil is already known.

"A pebble held close to the eye appears to be a gigantic obstacle. Cast on the ground, it is seen in perspective. Likewise, problems or trials in our lives need to be viewed in the perspective of scriptural doctrine.
