"Mother, Tell Me"

This is another painting depicting an ideal instead of a specific person. We women – and especially Mothers – can set the tone in our homes and families as we share our testimony in our words and actions.        

President Uchtdorf, 2011: the Lord expects the members of His Church to “open [their mouths] at all times, declaring [His] gospel with the sound of rejoicing.”8

This is not always easy. Some would rather pull a handcart across the prairie than bring up the subject of faith and religion to their friends and co-workers. They worry about how they might be perceived or how it might harm their relationship. It doesn’t need to be that way because we have a glad message to share, and we have a message of joy.”

                …”The most effective way to preach the gospel is through example. If we live according to our beliefs, people will notice. If the countenance of Jesus Christ shines in our lives, if we are joyful and at peace with the world, people will want to know why. One of the greatest sermons ever pronounced on missionary work is this simple thought attributed to Saint Francis of Assisi: “Preach the gospel at all times and if necessary, use words.”“


     The sides of this neat piece are covered with Mayan hieroglyphics. The left side (closest to the mother) reads, "I -witnessed - Sacred Lord - with - hands - pierced" The right hieroglyphics read, "It came to pass - God - His son - descended - from - the sky".
