Tend the Flock

May 2021

Is there anything more motherly than this month’s theme?

Mothers tend to their flocks.

And they teach us how to tend heavenly.

Sister Sis. Bonnie Cordon, Young Women General President, teaches that tending requires three things.

Numbering. Which mother among us does not know who her children are and where they are? Let us do the same for our brothers and sisters outside our immediate families.

Watching over. A good mother pays attention to the threats. She guards over her children and helps them find the right way. We should also look for what other need to keep them away from the threat of the adversary.

Gathering in. Mothers make the time to walk with their children to the places they need to be. They love their children unconditionally, where they are. They make their homes and their lives sanctuaries and invite their children to be safe with them. So it is in the Kingdom of God. We need to invite members of the flock to partake of the safety and peace of the Church.

Of course, the Savior is the master model for tending to the flock. He said, “I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine… and I lay down my life for the sheep.”

Sisters, we look to you to guide us in tending to our flock.

Sister Cordon said, “Rejoice in your willingness to make certain His sheep are known and numbered, watched over, and gathered into the fol of God.”
