From the Author
Richard G. Scott once said that the Lord, "will place in your path packets of spiritual sunlight to brighten your way. They often come after the trial has been the greatest, as evidence of the compassion and love of an all-knowing Father. They point the way to greater happiness, more understanding, and strengthen your determination to accept and be obedient to His will. (Richard G. Scott "Trust in the Lord" November 1994 Ensign, p.17)
Every parent has times when he or she doubts his or her ability to raise children, to be a good parent, or to just survive the challenges of the day. We each need packets of spiritual sunlight to brighten our way. This book is a collection of quotations and advice for parents that do just that.
I began this collection as a way to bolster myself as a busy mother of six and in the process found gems of wisdom that I wanted to share with others.
I hope you enjoy!

You'll enjoy this book filled with brief stories and profound messages from the Bible and other sources. The author has organized this collection well, and sitting down with it even for a few moments will guarantee you a renewed sense of the purpose and divine blessings of being a mom. The book covers everything from the value of work and prayer together to the importance of trust and home, confidence and independence. Every page is a guide or affirmation.
The author reminds us near the book's end of the need to "practice what we preach," and that's especially important for us parents who are always teaching even when we don't know it. "People learn from what we do more than from what we say. Children especially, watch our actions." And fortunately, we have this book, in its warm and inspiring way, to help us teach our very best to our most wonderful treasures.
