Mormon Wellness Project: 022: Mother’s Day Special: Aurelia Spencer Rogers Who

In this special tribute to Aurelia Spencer Rogers, founder of the Primary (children’s) organization for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, Wendy shares a bit of the story. She also points out that a woman who has influenced millions of Mormons around the world garnered a mere eight sentences on her main LDS.org bio. Wendy expresses her frustration at this and calls for changes. But she does it ever so nicely, cause mothers are like that.
