Activist Faith

Every year, Americans celebrate Mother’s Day to recognize the monumental role of mothers in society. To inspire you this Mother’s Day, I’ve included some of my favorite quotes concerning mothers. Please feel free to share and encourage your mother and the other mothers around you this weekend.

And to my mom, I love you! Your prayers and love have sustained me each step of the journey.

“A little girl, asked where her home was, replied, “‘Where mother is.'”  -Keith L. Brooks

“I remember my mother’s prayers and they have always followed me. They have clung to me all my life.” -Abraham Lincoln

“If you have a mom, there is nowhere you are likely to go where a prayer has not already been.” -Robert Brault

“An ounce of mother is worth a pound of clergy.” -Spanish Proverb

Feel free to share your favorite quotes or stories about mothers in the comments below. Thanks!
