"A Mother There"

It's Mothering Sunday in the UK! To celebrate, I read this article about our Heavenly Mother. She is a heavenly wife and parent, a divine person, a co-creator with the father. She is a coframer of the plan of salvation, an involved parent in our mortality. Here are some of my favorite parts:

"It doesn't take from our worship of the Eternal Father, to adore our Eternal Mother, any more than it diminishes the love we bear our earthly fathers, to include our earthly mothers in our affections...we honor woman we we acknowledge Godhood in her eternal prototype." - President Rudger Clawson

"'What,' says one, 'do you mean we should understand that Deity consists of man and woman?' Most certainly I do. If I believe anything that God has ever said about himself...I must believe that deity consists of man and woman...There can ve no God except he is composted of the man and woman united, and there is not in all the eternities that exist, or ver will be a God in any other way. We may never hope to attain unto the eternal power and the Godhead upon any other principle ..this Godhead composing two parts, male and female." - Elder Erastus Snow

"Sisters, I testify that when you stand in front of your heavenly parents in those royal courts on high and you look into Her eyes and behold Her countenance, any question you ever had about the role of women in the kingdom will evaporate into the rich celestial ari, because at that moment you will see standing directly in front of you, your divine nature and destiny." - Elder Glenn L. Pace
