In 1920, Joseph Smith’s teachings revealed that “the divine Mother, [is] side by side with the divine Father.” Helping us to understand that we do in fact have a Heavenly Mother.
The new Young Women Theme says, “I am a beloved daughter of heavenly parents with a divine nature and destiny.” This change emphasizes the importance of our heavenly parents as a divine unit.
This is not the only place where they are referred to as a unit of Heavenly Parents. In fact, The Family: a Proclamation to the World states, “Each [human being] is a beloved spirit son or daughter of heavenly parents.”
There have been multiple occasions where mortal beings have seen our Heavenly Father. This has given us a vague idea of what he looks like. But, we don’t know what our Heavenly Mother actually looks like.
Because we don’t know, these depictions of diversity become meaningful and thoughtful. Here are 11 beautiful depictions of our Heavenly Mother.
