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.

Thus, your perspective on Heavenly Mother can often expand beyond how She is traditionally viewed.
