She Was ‘Armed’ By A Faithful Mother


The little girl of four didn’t know what to do. Her Daddy has left her alone, in the big house, and she was scared. This was a new house to her since her Daddy had moved and this was the first time she had come to visit him since then. She looked out the window at a neighborhood and people unknown, and fear started to set in. “Where has my Daddy gone?” she asked herself as panic started to set in.

Fear now became the enemy of the little four-year old as she fled to the mild safety of her new room. She closed the door and ran over to the bed and got under the covers and pulled them tight to her. “Where was he? When would he be back? Had he left her?” The ominous questions kept pouring into her young mind and she felt a coldness starting to overcome her. The fear began to become unbearable and the little girl felt her heart race and a darkness set in.

It was then that she remembered the words of her Mother, now so far away. “Heavenly Father will always be with you no matter where you go.” The little girl felt a warmth come over her as she repeated in her heart the lesson she had been armed with by a faithful mother. Peace came to her heart and tranquility to her soul as she spoke to a Father she had never seen, but one who was certainly listening.

The world can be frightening for so many children these days. Pulled back and forth from different homes, from one parent to another! May we all remember to ‘arm’ our children with faith in the Savior and the knowledge that He lives and loves us and that no matter the shape of our earthly family, we have always been, and will always be a part of a Heavenly Family where the laws are set, and our membership in it are not changeable.
