“The Hand That Rocks The Cradle…


Though this was written in homage to mothers, this applies to all who are involved in raising our children.  The culture and feeling in our homes are what shape the world. 

If you are a mom and you have ever heard, “just a mom,” I want you to consider the power in your role.  Parents are arguably doing more to shape our culture than any individual in any other vocation.  Teachers and politicians are shaped by their parents.  The culture around them is manipulated by the families near them. 

Parents do well to educate themselves about their role and the power they have to inspire the hearts and spirits of their children with love and hope, and to be educated in general.  Their children will grow up to shape the world.

About the author, Jodi

I live in Richmond, Virginia with my husband, Michael, and our four young kids. We homeschool, and work remotely, so I guess we may take this on the road some day! I have a bachelor's degree from George Mason University in Health Promotion Studies, but I attended five different universities before finally finishing while I was expecting my third baby! I'm a returned missionary from the Hawaii Honolulu Mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I'm sort of a jack-of-all-trades-master-of-none, but I do enjoy reading personal development and parenting books, finding new ways to enjoy exercising, and learning more about being an entrepreneur.
