Woman Of Another World I Am With You Heavenly Mother In Mormon Poetry

The A Mother Here Art and Poetry Contest (2014) aimed to counter Mormonism’s cultural silence about Heavenly Mother, to inspire thinking about the Divine Feminine, and to show that Heavenly Mother is a valued part of the Mormon religious tradition by encouraging artistic and literary portrayals of Her. In my presentation, I will read and comment on the poems featured in the contest in an attempt to express the nearness of our Heavenly Mother and to witness Her presence in the cosmos (as coeval with Father) and in the intimate details of our lives.
