I loved this intriguing question. Is it not vital for ourselves as mothers and women to realize that we were given this blessing, by a woman who stood so firm in her faith that she choose to know good from evil.
"And Eve, his wife, heard all these things and was glad, saying: Were it not for our transgression we never should have had seed, and never should have known good and evil, and the joy of our redemption, and the eternal life which God giveth unto all the obedient. And Adam and Eve blessed the name of God, and they made all things known unto their sons and their daughters." Moses 5:11-12
I often wonder if we as women of faith and covenant, stop to assure our inner critics of the beauty and the power that we hold. We create and we nurture, we feed, we rescue and we teach day by day these beautiful children that we have been blessed with. At times I wish I could talk with the woman I was 3 1/2 years ago before giving birth to my three children, I would reminder her of all that she would be and all that she can be. I would tell her to remember all the woman who have gone before, to use the wisdom they hold as a balm of Gilead to soothe my own worries and fears. I love being a mother more then anything I have ever done. I was never really me until I gave birth to George, Jack and Eva.
