A Mother's Faith
(Alma 56:46-48)

This passage from the Book of Mormon made me weepy as I read it last night:
For as I had ever called them my sons (for they were all of them very young) even so they said unto me: Father, behold our God is with, and he will not suffer that we should fall; then let us go forth; we would not slay our brethren if they would let us alone; therefore let us go, lest they should overpower the army of Antipus.

Now they never had fought, yet they did not fear death; and they did think more upon the liberty of their fathers than they did upon their lives; yea, they had been taught by their mothers, that if they did not doubt, God would deliver them.

And they rehearsed unto me the words of their mothers, saying, We do not doubt our mothers knew it.

I hope that my children do not doubt that I know!
