LESSON HELPS:

A Mother - Author Unknown
Divide the class up into groups and give each group a different part of the Family Proclamation. Each of the groups picks what the proclamation says in their part about a mother's roll, then talk about it.
 Scriptures about Mothers
You could use a diamond/gem/crystal theme, and bring out the "many facets" of a mother, and how no two mothers/gems are exactly the same, nor do they need to be.  There are some of the Christmas lights that have gem like covers that could be used in decorating.  You could make rock candy - the kind that crystallizes on a string/stick, and make each table a different color signifying a different gemstone.  For a woman who is not yet a mother, you might make an analogy to a geode - where all the crystals are developing on the inside waiting to be opened, and at some point they will. (Idea by Deborah Woods)

The easiest part of being a mother is giving birth 
When I had young children at home we formed a play/preschool group twice a week. There were 8 kids in the group so you only had to do it once a month. We had play time, color time, snack time, school time, music time, tv time, lunch time and nap time and stuff like that. It was for 6 hours. This gave much needed relief to 8 women. (Carole Reynolds)
