"We do not DOUBT our MOTHERS know it!"

I just wanted to share this AWESOME idea I found through the facebook chorister group! This is what my primary children will be presenting for their mothers in sacrament meeting on Mothers Day this year!!  Thank you to the wonderful Sister who shared this! It sure makes my life a lot easier at this busy, busy time of year!! For those who need something simple, but still want to bring tears to the Mothers eyes, check out this sweet, spiritual message to all the AWESOME women who have brought great meaning and strength into our lives and these sweet children's lives that we get to share with each week!!

I will be having a boy from Senior primary reading this before we sing:

In the Book of Mormon, we read of the story of the 2,000 stripling warriors who became known as  Helaman's Army. Helaman described them as young men who were valiant and courageous because they had been taught to keep the commandments of God and walk uprightly before him. As Helaman led them to their first battle, he asked if they were sure they wanted to go forward, not knowing if they would be ambushed and killed. In Alma 56:46-48, we read their response:

46: behold our God is with us, and he will not suffer that we should fall; then let us go forth

47: Now they had never fought, yet they did not fear death; and they did think more upon their liberty of their fathers than they did upon their own lives; yea, they had been taught by their mothers, that if they did not doubt, God would deliver them.

48: And they rehearsed unto me the words of their mothers, saying: We do not doubt our mothers knew it.

On this Mother's Day, we honor our own mothers who teach us by their example how to live the commandments and develop strong faith. Like Helaman's Army, we too can say, "We do not doubt our Mothers know it."

We will then finish off singing the first verse of "We'll Bring the World his Truth" and then this AWESOME 4th verse that was written by the Dear Sister that came up with this WONDERFUL Mothers day idea... I wish I had  a name to give but the lady who shared it did not know the name of the sister who came up with it!! Who ever she may be, blessings for sharing:)

4th verse for We'll bring the world his Truth

Our Mothers know the scriptures are true;
By their example we learn in our youth;
Their Faith is Strong, so ours too will be,
Our Mothers know it and so do we

We will be doing Mother Dear first (pics to click, save and print on my previous post) and then finishing off with this!!! My wish is to help anyone out there feeling so overwhelmed with singing time and life at this very moment! I love to come up with fun singing time activities but I'm sorry, sometimes life just gets in the way and we have to take advantage of the AWESOME talents of others. What a blessing the internet is for us these days!! We get to share and receive such wonderful gifts of talent from everywhere:) Thank you for sharing your BEAUTIFUL gifts with me!! Happy Singing Everyone!!
