motherhood calling from the blog Desiring God, by Rachel Jankovic


  1. I just love this!  Too bad more people don't feel this way.  I have a feeling if they did the world would be a different place.

  2. Bleh.  I'm dropping your blog from my google reader. 

    I don't read blogs by people who make snarky, judgmental comments about others' motivations but toss in a reference to God to make it sound less smug and condescending.  I think it has the opposite effect.

    Elder Andersen did share this quote in conference, but he notes that it came from "a blog written by a Christian mother". I can only assume he was talking about Rachel's blog, which is wonderful.

    That is inspiring. 

  5. Love this!!

  6. Everytime I read one of your quotes I think "this is my favorite".
    THIS is definitely my FAVORITE!

  7. Melissa, you are incredible!  I love your blog and learning so much from you -about decorating, being a mommy and being a light to the world. I reposted this on my blog, thanks!!!

    You must be LDS because this was actually spoken in General Conference by one of the apostles of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.  And it certainly is a good one!


Thank you for taking the time to leave me a note!
