Revelation

"The ability to qualify for, receive, and act on personal revelation is the single most important skill that can be acquired in this life.....Revelation can come hour by hour and moment by moment as we do the right things. When women nurture as Christ nurtured, a power and peace can descend to guide when help is needed. For instance, mothers can feel help from the Spirit even when tired, noisy children are clamoring for attention, but they can be distanced from the Spirit if they lose their temper with children Being in the right places allows us to receive guidance. It requires a conscious effort to diminish distractions, but having the Spirit of revelation makes it possible to prevail over opposition and persist in faith through difficult days and essential routine tasks. Personal revelation gives us the understanding of what to do every day to increase faith and personal righteousness, strengthen families and homes, and seek those who need our help. Because personal revelation is a constantly renewable source of strength, it is possible to feel bathed in help even during turbulent times."

Oh, thanks for posting this. I loved this talk also. My favorite part was when she said we could still have the spirit present when our children are being crazy as long as we don't lose our temper. I sort of thought to myself... Of course. Why didn't I think of that before now? It makes perfect sense.

@Liz - I think every mother felt the same way, I know I did!
