Even adult children need their Heavenly Mother. All the works collected here are created by or for adults.
Young adults are the emerging leaders of the Church and the world. As you continue learning and sharing your beliefs about Heavenly Mother, your ability to lead in a compassionate, empathetic manner will increase. Knowledge of Heavenly Mother can bless the decisions you make in your life and can help you decide how best to develop your divine potential.
Teenagers make an important contribution to the world. You often bring new perspectives, and they represent the future of our world. You are an essential part of the discussion about our Heavenly Mother. By knowing Her during your teenage years, the relationship you develop with Her will be foundational throughout your life.
Just as the Savior gathered the children and blessed them, so does our Heavenly Mother love and bless Her children. Children are often the most receptive individuals for truth, light, and goodness. There is no better time to learn about and love Heavenly Mother than during childhood. Such an experience sets the foundation for the rest of the child’s life.
As parents, you are the primary influencers of your children. Yours is the opportunity to help them understand that in addition to their family on Earth, they have a family in Heaven that loves them. Heavenly Mother is an important part of that heavenly family. The sooner children understand this, the more fully it will impact the formulation of their faith and identities. For young girls, knowing Heavenly Mother can help them internalize their potential as leaders with power and authority. For young boys, having a relationship with Heavenly Mother can positively impact their view of girls and women in ways that are powerful and substantive rather than pedestalizing.
Individuals who identify as LGBTQ+ bring a unique contribution to the conversation about Heavenly Mother. Like Her, your presence in our faith community is essential, valuable, and powerful, but often overlooked or misunderstood. Thus, your perspective on Heavenly Mother can often expand beyond how She is traditionally viewed.
