If you do one thing today read this

So I received my Ensign (church mag) in the mail today, and President Hinckley, the current prophet, wrote the best thing ever. Totally uplifting.

Read it HERE

Especially if you are a mom or plan to be one. Not to push any buttons, but there are religions who believe that babies are born into sin. And just as I look at my little Baylie to the right...she is so full of innocence and so more perfect than me. Especially when I've been super crabby mom the last few days. And yelled more than I should. How did President Hinckley know that I needed to hear this right now?

Part of it he quotes someone else and here is the excerpt, (but you really should read the whole thing cause who doesn't need more warm and fuzzy in their life)

"E. T. Sullivan once wrote these interesting words: “When God wants a great work done in the world or a great wrong righted, he goes about it in a very unusual way. He doesn’t stir up his earthquakes or send forth his thunderbolts. Instead, he has a helpless baby born, perhaps in a simple home and of some obscure mother. And then God puts the idea into the mother’s heart, and she puts it into the baby’s mind. And then God waits. The greatest forces in the world are not the earthquakes and the thunderbolts. The greatest forces in the world are babies.”"
