The Story Behind This Mother’s Day Poem
This week, I received an email from my church women’s group, the Relief Society, asking me to write a poem or other written work to celebrate womanhood for Mother’s Day. Mother’s come in so many different varieties, that both they and I wanted to make certain the message was clear: all women nurture the Children of God.
I’ve written no more than a handful of poems, but the more I considered what to write, the more lines of poetry came to mind. This simple poem is the result.
Once I had the finished product in hand, I surprised myself and wanted to share it with my readers.
Because of this, I’ve created a copy for you to download. Your 8.5″ x 11″ free printable of Women of the Divine comes without worry of attached strings. There are no requirements, and I gather none of your information.
(This link pulls up a copy of the poem. You can print it on paper or as a PDF. Use the print icon in the top right corner of the screen. The file will not automatically download to your computer.)
Do you have questions about Heavenly Mother
Members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints believe that when sealed in holy temples, marriages can last through the eternities.
“All men and women are in the similitude of the universal Father and Mother, and are literally the sons and daughters of Deity,” taught the First Presidency of the Church in 1909. That teaching continues in the Family: A Proclamation: to the World, which states, “Each is a beloved spirit son or daughter of heavenly parents, and, as such, each has a divine nature and destiny.”
Following Jesus Christ’s example, we do not pray or worship our Heavenly Mother. But we do recognize and reverence Her existence. It is the knowledge of our Heavenly Mother that reminds all women of their God-given ability to nurture precious children.
