I found this quote last year in an article called Meaningful Teaching at Home, by Darren E. Schmidt. In the article, Schmidt suggests 4 ways we can teach our children important life lessons. He quotes Neal A. Maxwell while speaking of the heavy responsibility we have to watch over God’s children and how sometimes we can feel inadequate. He says of the above quote:

This statement uplifts me when I am discouraged. It gives my wife and me courage in our abilities as parents, knowing that our children have been placed within our “orbit” for a reason and that Heavenly Father trusts us.

I think sometimes we are too hard on ourselves and question our ability to parent. Sometimes it is a nice reminder to do your best and then relax- you’re doing just fine!
