Maybe you are thinking of a mother figure, someone who has been investing in your wellbeing like a mentor, teacher, or spiritual leader who instructs, guides and holds your hand throughout your journey to becoming a better you.

Mothers are important. Your biological mother sustains you in the womb, providing you with all the nutrients you need to become healthy and strong. Additionally, she is usually one of the first people who held you in arms as you made an entrance into this world. She nurtures, dresses, protects and care for you through God-given maternal instincts and abilities. However, spiritual mothers and mentors are undeniably equally important.
