Motherhood Cannot be Successfully Delegated....

President Ezra Taft Benson was a Prophet of God for our time.  His words certainly were Prophetic as we have seen that the lack of heeding on the part of some church members has contributed to the disintegration of their own families.  If any have done so - you can repent and change.  

Truly we are blessed with Prophets who lead and guide us to know the right way to go.  As we are obedient to their counsel we are blessed and, with that added reassurance from the Lord, we can then call upon the powers of Heaven for further guidance.  

If we don't heed and obey - we have no such promise.

"It is a fundamental truth that the responsibilities of motherhood cannot be successfully delegated. No, not to day-care centers, not to schools, not to nurseries, not to babysitters.

"We become enamored with men’s theories such as the idea of preschool training outside the home for young children. Not only does this put added pressure on the budget, but it places young children in an environment away from mother’s influence.

"Too often the pressure for popularity, on children and teens, places an economic burden on the income of the father, so mother feels she must go to work to satisfy her children’s needs. That decision can be most shortsighted."

The Family is Central to the Creator's Plan for the Eternal Destiny of His Children
