An LDS woman from California has been named National Mother of the Year. 

The honor is awarded by American Mothers, Inc., an inter-faith, non-political, non-profit organization that recognizes and promotes the important role of motherhood in society. The organization focuses on involvement in educational programs and community outreach and chooses two representatives — one Mother of the Year and one Young Mother of the Year — from each state.
