Virginia Mormon woman recognized for service as state Mother of the Year
Although it took some getting used to, Bouchelle says she has been pleased with the opportunities that the recognition has provided to shine a light on all mothers.
"I am very humbled by the experience and only became comfortable with it as I realized that I could help represent the many thousands of ‘every moms’ throughout Virginia — the ones who get up every day and do what needs to be done to keep things running smoothly in their families and communities," she said. "They deserve recognition and gratitude every day, not just on Mother’s Day, and it is on their behalf that I have served this past year. To have our Virginia General Assembly pause for a moment and acknowledge the contributions made by the ‘every moms’ has been a wonderful conclusion to my efforts over the past year.”
