My grandmother, Helen Darton Spiers (Kunkel), in England

8. John 19:27 -One of the Savior's last acts was to make sure his mother was cared for.

7. Luke 1:46 -I want serve as a magnifying glass to the Gospel and Savior for my children, too.

6. Genesis 3:20 -Not because she was the first woman on earth, or Adam's wife, but because she would be a mother.

5. Mosiah 4:14-15 -What I aspire to be able to do on a daily basis.

4. Moses 1:39 -What I aspire to help Heavenly Father accomplish in the long run.

3. 2 Timothy 1:5 -This gives me hope that the testimony I have will be passed on to my kids.

2. Mosiah 3:8 -It gives me a thrill just to read it!

1. Alma 56:47-48 -Even teenage boys will rely on the words taught by their moms.
