Mary is perhaps the most significant mother in all of history. She alone was chosen to be the mother of the only begotten Son, a task that was not only daunting but had significant implications for Mary. As we more fully understand her entire story, not just the moment she became a mother, or even the moment she saw the Savior die on the cross, we can gain a truly remarkable view into the life of this amazing woman.

It all started with the fathers. As with countless Jewish girls, Mary’s betrothal likely began when, by custom, Joseph’s father approached hers. Before Joseph’s father said more than a few words, Mary’s father likely knew what he wanted. To be brief, he wanted to discuss a possible engagement of his son with Mary. That topic would require a somewhat formal meeting.1 Whether Joseph’s father was the first parent to approach Mary’s father we cannot know. It is certainly possible that her father had been approached by other fathers of young men in Nazareth. Mary would surely have been visible to all the fathers in the small town. She may have been one of the few eligible young women that year in a settlement that sat apart, high above the surrounding plains at the top of steep hills that rose near one another and, falling precipitously toward each other, formed a bowl-like setting for Nazareth’s few inhabitants.

Across our worldwide Church, children, youth, and adults are studying Matthew 1 and Luke 1, which tells of the miraculous conception of John the Baptist and Jesus Christ. Recently, Daniel Smith of Messages of Christ created a video contrasting these two events, a video that highlights the incredible faith and devotion of Mary, the mother of the Son of God. These insights can add depth to our study of the new Come, Follow Me curriculum and our understanding of New Testament events.

"Son of God" shares the story of the holy night of Christ's birth from a different perspective—that of Mary, a mother elated at the birth of her perfect Son and frightened at the thought of all He will have to face and bear. This original song by Paul Cardall featuring Patrice Tipoki will have you thinking of the Nativity in an entirely new way, one that makes that sacred night more personal and meaningful.

Often when we think of Mary, we think of the young woman willing to trust in God entirely and the mother willing to protect her infant son at all costs.

Many of us have heard the story of the Nativity so many times we can repeat it from memory. And while the scriptures carry meaning no matter how many times we hear them, occasionally new insights or a change in focus can bring new depth and meaning to this simple and beautiful story. Here are a few such insights from Elder Jeffrey R. Holland (then serving as the commissioner of the Church Educational System) that might change how you think of Mary, Joseph, and Jesus. This article was originally published in the December 1977 issue of the Ensign.

Mary, the mother of Jesus: Little is known about this remarkable woman who was called to carry and raise the Son of God. All we have in our scriptures are four lines spoken by this strong woman; four lines that show her humility, her faith, and her love of the Lord.
