Mother’s Day Hand Soap
Every Mother’s Day, I love to come up with something special for all the wonderful women in my life. With all the crazy we have been through the past several weeks with COVID-19, I couldn’t think of a better gift than hand soap! (Except maybe toilet paper and hand sanitizer!!!!!) To make it an extra special Mother’s Day hand soap, I added a printable with a quote from President Thomas S. Monson.
“There is no hand like mother’s. Nor does its tender care diminish through the years.”
These are also great for ministering, Relief Society, or as a ward Mother’s Day gift idea.

Hand soap seemed like the perfect Mother’s Day idea for so many reasons. First, who doesn’t love getting a bottle of fancy hand soap? And when I think of mothers, hands are such a perfect symbol of all the ways they work, server, and care for others.
And of course, I had to find the perfect hand quote to go with it. This quote comes from a talk President Monson gave back in 1972, “Hands.” In the talk, he discusses our hands at different stages of our lives and then talk about the hands of the Lord. It is neat to think that it is not only by Christ’s hand that I am supported in my work, but His hands are also my example as I look at the way He has served. He has pointed the way and lifts me to be able to follow it.
President Monson goes on to say, “This was the determined hand which drove from the temple the money changers. This was the loving hand that blessed little children. This was the strong hand that opened deaf ears and restored vision to sightless eyes. By this hand was the leper cleansed, the lame man healed—even the dead Lazarus raised to life. With the finger of this hand there was written in the sand that message which the winds did erase but which honest hearts did retain. The hand of the carpenter. The hand of the teacher. The hand of the Christ.”
For the Mother’s Day Hand Soap, I made the printable with lemon leaves to match the lemon soap. I also liked the idea of how moms are always so skilled at turning lemons into lemonade. And it went perfect with the Bath and Body Works Kitchen Lemon Soap, which I love!
