Every new generation in the history of mankind is a testimony of the necessity for both man and woman. You do have a divine purpose, indeed you do. There is that same element of divinity in you and your sisters as there is in your brothers. All of us are here as part of a divine plan made by a loving Father who is concerned with our immortality and eternal life.
The mortal sphere in which we live is preparatory to that which will follow when we return to dwell with God our Father, provided we live worthy of that privilege.
October 1991 General Conference
You state that most scripture is addressed to men. Yes, some of it is, in a specific sense, with reference to priesthood duties and obligations, and some of it in a generic sense, as I have indicated. Great and true are these words of divine promise. The revelation which follows these opening words is rich in counsel, in praise, in instruction, and in promise to Emma Smith, and to every other woman who heeds the word of the Lord as set forth therein.
I hope therefore, my dear young friend, that you will not worry over these matters. I hope, rather, that you will go forward, living a life of righteousness, seeking to know the will of the Lord and following it, strengthening others by reason of your service and testimony, and praying in righteousness to the Father of us all. Be assured that He loves you.

Be assured that we all love you. May His choicest blessings attend you as you go forward with your life in righteousness. Always let your Father in Heaven be your friend, to whom you may go in prayer. And now, speaking of prayer, I touch on another matter. Last April, I spoke to the regional representatives of the Church, as I have done for a number of years on each occasion when they have come for general conference. These are training meetings where the regional representatives get information that they may carry with them across the Church. There is nothing secret or hidden about what is done there.
However, recently I heard that someone had secured a copy of my talk, looking upon that as a singular accomplishment, as if it had been given in a secret and sinister manner, designed to keep it from the world. I am therefore on this occasion going to take the liberty of rereading that portion of the talk which pertains to a matter over which some few women of the Church appear to be greatly exercised. I give it to all, in this forum, because of the activities of a few who evidently are seeking to lead others in the paths which they are following. I speak of those who advocate the offering of prayers to our Mother in Heaven.
I quote from that earlier address:. Snow who wrote the words: Therefore, we have a Mother in Heaven. Therefore, [some assume] that we may appropriately pray to her. That doctrine rests well with me.

In the Sermon on the Mount, He declared:. Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Search as I have, I find nowhere in the standard works an account where Jesus prayed other than to His Father in Heaven or where He instructed the people to pray other than to His Father in Heaven. The fact that we do not pray to our Mother in Heaven in no way belittles or denigrates her.

That is the end of the quotation from the talk I gave earlier, to which I may add that none of us can add to or diminish the glory of her of whom we have no revealed knowledge. Now in conclusion, may I express my gratitude to you faithful Latter-day Saint women, now numbered in the millions and found across the earth. Great is your power for good. Marvelous are your talents and devotion. Tremendous is your faith and your love for the Lord, for His work, and for His sons and daughters. Continue to live the gospel. Magnify it before all of your associates.
Your good works will carry more weight than any words you might speak. Walk in virtue and truth, with faith and faithfulness. You are part of an eternal plan, a plan designed by God our Eternal Father. Each day is a part of that eternity. I know that many of you carry terribly heavy burdens. May your associates in the Church, your brethren and sisters, help you with those burdens. May your prayers ascend to Him who is all powerful, who loves you, and who can bring to bear forces and factors which can help you.
This is a work of miracles. You know it, and I know it. It is easy for me to tell you not to become discouraged, but I say it nonetheless, as I urge you to go forward in faith. May you be blessed with strength for the work of the day and with love for all who are entrusted to your care. I remembered that I had picked up the book at a resale shop a while back, so I decided to read it. I thought that perhaps after reading the story, I would be in agreement with the state's case against Darlie. However, the book did the opposite. It made me completely think the case against her was ludicrous, and that she definitely did not see a fair trial.
I would nev Books like this make me uneasy. I would never go as far to say that she is completely innocent, but I do not think that the state proved their claim in the least.
Hush Little Babies: the true story of a mother who murdered her own children
This scares me that this woman is on death row for a crime she might not possibly have committed. I can't fathom being in that position, especially after losing two of the most important things in your life.
I feel for this woman, and I pray and hope that she is delivered justice, or at least some piece of justice. Aug 09, Sonya Dickerson rated it really liked it. Maybe I'm in the minority but after reading this book, I'm not entirely convinced that this woman killed her children. There is a lot of evidence that state the contrary I believe that there just might have been someone else in the home that night and the police didn't do enough investigation about it. There are too many unanswered questions here. If she is innocent, she lost many years of her life for what?
Unlike Diane Downs, I'm not convinced that Darlie did it. I recommend the book because Maybe I'm in the minority but after reading this book, I'm not entirely convinced that this woman killed her children. I recommend the book because it does give a very unbiased view of the case so that you can decide for yourself.
Apr 23, Priscilla Lopez rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: She lovingly kissed her boys good night and then used a kitchen knife to say goodbye forever and ever. This is a horrifying book to read. Sep 23, Vesna rated it really liked it. Unsure if she's guilty or innocent.. Silly string video has me doubting she's innocent.. If it was my kids I would have to be sedated as I couldn't cope how she did..
Feb 16, Steph Gick rated it it was amazing Shelves: I can't recommend this book enough. I first read it about 12 years ago. I had never heard of the case, the book just sounded interesting. A mother killing her own babies This book lays out the facts - no bias opinions.
Praying Boldly for a Husband
Based on what I read for the synopsis, I started the book fully believing that I was going to read about a monster. By the time the book ended, I was convinced that Darlie Routier was wrongfully convicted. Perhaps you'll I can't recommend this book enough. Perhaps you'll reach your own conclusions as well.
Jan 18, Crystal Bearrington rated it did not like it. Since Darlie is likely innocent, I didn't think much of this book. Jan 16, Diane Waddington rated it it was amazing. Great book still cannot tell if she did it or not though. Undecided While I believe that this woman killed her children, without a doubt, I also believe that if this book includes all the evidence that was taken from the scene, and the poor collection of witnesses statements meaning no documentation there is no way that if I had been on this jury I could not have had reasonable doubt, as defined by the law.
As a mother and having common sense, I can only believe that she murdered them, who else could it have been? I don't believe that it was for any fi Undecided While I believe that this woman killed her children, without a doubt, I also believe that if this book includes all the evidence that was taken from the scene, and the poor collection of witnesses statements meaning no documentation there is no way that if I had been on this jury I could not have had reasonable doubt, as defined by the law. I don't believe that it was for any financial gain, if it were, why not kill the husband?

Perhaps they woke I up during the night and disturbed her and she flipped, only she can answer that. Based on this book, during the trial,I feel like the prosecution left too many unanswered questions and in my mind, failed to prove "beyond a doubt" she was guilty. My common sense says that she is but there is a reasonable doubt. I would like to read something with a lot more information concerning what made the police zero in on her from the very start Jun 06, Krazeeg rated it liked it.
Didn't seem to be researched as well as other books surrounding this topic. I recommend this book for all mothers, but especially for any mothers who have adult children — particularly children who have fallen away from the church, or who have fallen into bad habits in their lives.
