What Do LDS Women Get?
by DeseretBook on Youtube
I really needed to hear this today. It gives me a place to stand as a woman of the gospel in these days.
Right on, Sis. Dew!
Women in our church organization find themselves serving, administering, leading and preaching and teaching to a greater extent than in any other church I have seen. Even the men are included and share their reponsibilities along side their women. We are at the center of all activities and even ordinances in our Temple devotions. If we had any more "priethood power" which seems to be so coveted in the minds of the world, we would be more than willing to share it with our spouses as they do with us. Women are co heirs and Priestesses in the Priesthood.
Her addresses are always outstanding! One of my favorite LDS women. She is an awesome person. Love her.
If I'm right I think this was at a TOFW, in Salt Lake, last fall-2012, maybe other's too? I saw this and loved it! Great Talk! Sisters that "think" we need to be ordained, #1-- Don't get the whole Church, and #2--Really need to see/hear this talk!
Thanks you Sis. Dew - I have seen this video more than once - never tire of this uplifting talk. HUGS to you and all women!
Love this, I am a totally happy woman in our church!
I loved this talk and was glad to have found it, but I was saddened by some of the comments attached. We all come from very different backgrounds and while some things may come easily to certain individuals, they are a very real struggle for others. Geneva, thank you for adding perspective to the discussion. I am grateful to be a daughter of God.
I absolutely LOVE this!! Thank you for sharing. It has hit the mark with questions that I have been approached with and is explained and expressed beautifully.
AMEN!!! I am so thankful to be a woman and to have all these blessings, and so thankful for this reminder.
This is brilliant! Thank you so much for sharing.
Thank you so much. So very much. There was never a doubt in my mind, but I know some struggle with this issue, and since I am not good with words, Shari, you have said the truth in a beautiful way. I will definitely pass this along.
Thank you Sis. Dew for a beautiful explanation of the privilege & BLESSING it is to be a woman who belongs to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints!
What an amazing woman Sherri Dew is!! She inspires me!! Thank you
Thank you, Sister Dew!
Excellent! Wish I could be that eloquent!
Home run!! She nailed it as usual!
What a wonderful talk!
Wonderful. Simply wonderful!
This is a great address.
Absolutely so true!
This is awesome. I teach tomorrow in Relief Society and this so fit the topic for me! thank you Sister Dew for your testimony and spirit!
AMEN!! whoohoo..! thanks Sherri Dew..!
Sister Dew tells it like it is! Those of us who have a problem with the Lord's plan for His children, male and female, I'm thinking also have a problem with their lack of self-esteem. Obedience is the key, who are we to question God's decisions, it's His gospel! As His daughters we are not undervalued by Him, nor by His church, we have our role to fill and men have their's. Kudos to Sherri Dew for stating it so clearly.
This talk is just remarkable. So good. Geneva Wagner - I agree that we need to be careful not to judge those who have been through difficult experiences. It's all about loving as the Savior would, not judging or belittling
Wonderful talk, Thank You !!
I am so grateful for the blessings my Heavenly Father gives me!
Wonderful, Simplicity is best. It is easier for others to understand.Not so much to sort over at one time.
Well said! I don't feel one bit oppressed as an LDS woman...in fact, just the opposite!
Thanks, Nan, for sharing...I really enjoyed this.
as a brother in the church (it seems all previous comments are sisters), may i say that i truly appreciate the many sisters that grasp the greatness of the gospel and are examples to all of true christian discipleship...to follow christ, you are called to serve, not called to complain...to follow christ, if someone wants to point their finger, well tell them about lehi and a dream...
That's my girl. I love hearing her speak. She has this gift of speech to share with the world which is exactly why she has not married!!! She would be so utterly devoted to her husband and family she wouldn't have been able to give all she has to the women of the world. She is a GIANT among women esp. in the church!!❤️
What a privilege to stand as a witness of the things Sister Dew has said and very proud to be a women in the church.
My dad always taught us that us LDS women are not oppressed but the exact opposite, he always made me feel that we were somehow even MORE important amazing and set apart from men LOL! Never once did I see my mom feel oppressed or my sisters or myself...because we choose to be mothers doesn't mean we are oppressed we are creating raising and helping the next generation of powerful humble women!
where can I get a written copy of this?
This is great!
You find some of the best men in the world who adore their wives and women in general in this church. Men constantly give us credit as women in our church and respect for us as women is greater here than anywhere you can find in the world. Ladies who are true to their membership know that the man is nothing without the woman in priesthood.
Magnificent! She speaks the absolute truth. The Holy Ghost she talked about witnesses that to me as I listened to her speak. Awesome!!
No one says it like Sheri!
A very inspirational speaker. I love to read or listen to her talks as she opens up more horizons. I wish we had such motivational speakers here in the UK.
Thank you Sister Sheri Dew for articulating what so many of us know in our hearts ... we are indeed BELOVED daughters of our Heavenly Father.
i wonder why when women were fighting for the right to vote (politically) the church came out against it? it puzzles me to no end. just curious. i love this talk - LOVE her - i wish she would address that too. i'm sure there's an explanation.... i'd just like to be privy to it.
I would need to see the documentation that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints ever came out against the right for women to vote. From all that I have studied, the exact opposite happened. SEE: http://historytogo.utah.gov...
"Women's Suffrage--the right of women to vote--was won twice in Utah. It was granted first in 1870 by the territorial legislature but revoked by Congress in 1887 as part of a national effort to rid the territory of polygamy. It was restored in 1895, when the right to vote and hold office was written into the constitution of the new state.
"In sharp contrast to the long fight for women's suffrage nationally, the vote came to Utah women in 1870 without any effort on their part. It had been promoted by a group of men who had left the Mormon church, the Godbeites, in their Utah Magazine, but to no immediate effect. At the same time, an unsuccessful effort to gain the vote for women in Utah territory had been launched in the East by antipolygamy forces; they were convinced that Utah women would vote to end plural marriage if given the chance. Brigham Young and others realized that giving Utah women the vote would not mean the end of polygamy, but it could change the predominant national image of Utah women as downtrodden and oppressed and could help to stem a tide of antipolygamy legislation by Congress. With no dissenting votes, the territorial legislature passed an act giving the vote (but not the right to hold office) to women on 10 February 1869. The act was signed two days later by the acting governor, S. A. Mann, and on 14 February, the first woman voter in the municipal election reportedly was Sarah Young, grandniece of Brigham Young. Utah thus became the second territory to give the vote to women; Wyoming had passed a women's suffrage act in 1869. No states permitted women to vote at the time."
As always, Sister Dew is able to communicate the place we sisters hold in the living Gospel of Jesus Christ. She is an inspired speaker, but more than that, she is an inspiration to all of us, to do more, do it better, to be more in tune with our Heavenly Father through the gift of the Holy Ghost. We can receive revelation for our lives!
The next time that anyone suggests women are oppressed in the LDS church, I am going to respond by asking why--if women are so oppressed--we were blessed with the power of creation. Yes, the Priesthood is vitally important, and we are each eternally blessed by its power, but I'm going to carry one of God's choice spirits; I am going to nourish it with my own spirit and blood and tears. And that is truly powerful.
