Faithful Mothers

Today's scripture was so beautiful, and spoke very clearly about the importance of faithful mothers.

2 Timothy 1:5
When I call to remembrance the unfeigned faith that is in thee, which dwelt first in thy grandmother Lois, and thy mother Eunice; and I am persuaded that in thee also.

How wonderful is that? To take the time to illustrate the importance of the faith of Timothy's mother, and grandmother! Obviously the faith of mothers is vital in the work of the Lord! This scripture really spoke to me, as it reminded me that I am responsible for planting the seed of faith in my children's hearts! Church attendance, daily family scripture study and family prayer, weekly Family Home Evening, and daily personal prayers are all necessary for helping my children develop their own relationships with their Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ.

I reluctantly admit that this is something I struggle with. I am the first to jump up and proclaim my love for the Restored Gospel and the Plan of Salvation, but I am often the last one to rush into Sacrament Meeting, or the last one to suggest family prayer before we all retire. I need to work harder to be like the mother and grandmother of Timothy! How wonderful would it be to be called a credit to my children's faith!!!
