READER POST: Just imagine:
“When we omit Her name from His Church, we are inadvertently removing Her as the central focus of our lives.
“Taking our Heavenly Mother’s name upon us includes declaring and witnessing to others—through our actions and our words—that She is our Mother. Have we been so afraid to offend someone who doesn’t believe in Her that we have failed to defend the Mother Herself, to stand up for Her even in the name by which we call Her?
“If we as a people and as individuals are to have access to the power of Her Motherhood—to cleanse and heal us, to strengthen and magnify us, and ultimately to exalt us—we must clearly acknowledge Her as the source of that power. We can begin by calling Her by Her name.
“My dear brothers and sisters, I promise you that if we will do our best to restore the correct name of our Heavenly Mother, She whose Church this is will pour down Her power and blessings upon the heads of the Latter-day Saints, the likes of which we have never seen. We will have the knowledge and power of God to help us take the blessings of Her restored gospel to every nation, kindred, tongue, and people and to prepare the world for the Second Coming of the Lord.”
Russel M. Nelson, President of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints delivered at a future General Conference.
