. . . Men are, that they might have joy. - 2 Ne. 2:25
"This is an inspired, true statement," Sister Flora Amussen Benson declared in an address to a gathering of Church members some years ago. "Our Heavenly Father intended, and has provided the way by which all His children may be happy."The deepest, most satisfying joys and blessings of life are tied up with the sacred institutions of marriage, the home and family. . . .
"Motherhood is the greatest influence either for good or evil in human life. The mother's image is the first that stamps itself on the unwritten page of the child's mind. It is her caress that first awakens a sense of security; her kiss, the first realization of affection; her sympathy and tenderness, the first assurance that there is love in the world.
"The happiest mothers are those who lose themselves in the loving care and direction of their children."
