I knew that I wanted to create something directed towards mothers. Becoming a mother has been an incredible experience. I have become very passionate about motherhood and I have developed a desire to help mothers feel good about the work they are doing. Jeffrey R. Holland’s talk from a few conferences ago came to my mind instantly. I was able to find a lot of beautiful images of mothers and the savior on Things just came together so perfectly. The hardest part was deciding which words to use. I broke up the talk into the main 8 points and then created some ideas with combinations of words, fonts, sizes. It was during the drawing phase that I finalized my idea.



I am terrible. I did not complete a critique for this assignment and I did not post it to receive any feedback from others. I will do better next time!
