Words to Encourage Your Mother Heart

“A mother is many things: She is the giver of life and love, the maker of house and home. She is chief cook and dish washer, baby-sitter of last resort, provider, educator, doctor, disciplinarian, spiritual guide, counselor, health inspector, clothing consultant, taxi driver, and, of course, friend.” ~Mary Carlisle Beasley

“Every mother is like Moses. She does not enter the promised land. She prepares a world she will not see.” ~Pope Paul VI

“The woman who creates and sustains a home is a creator second only to God.” ~Helen Hunt Jackson

“We bear the world, and we make it. There was never a great man who had not a great mother.” ~Olive Schreiner

“A good woman is the best thing on earth. We can never estimate the debt we owe to godly wives and mothers.” ~Vance Havner

“Spoil your husband, but don’t spoil your children. That’s my philosophy. ~Louise Sevier GIddings Currey

“Cleaning your house while your kids are still growing is like shoveling the walk before it stops snowing. ~Phyllis Diller (I couldn’t resist this one!)

“One of the most important things a mother can do for her children is to like them.” ~Kelly Crawford

  2. I loved these quotes! Thank you for sharing them; I’m only 15, so am not a wife, mother or homemaker yet, but these beautiful quotes truly encouraged me as I prepare for those high callings! 🙂

  3. Wonderful quotes, Kelly! The “Moses” quote left me with a lump in my throat!!!
    If I’m not mistaken, I have not commented on your blog before although I am a frequent reader, so I am emerging from Lurkland to tell you what an encouragement you have been. I have recommended your blog to so many ladies. Keep on blogging for the Truth!
