To me, Mary is a sacred symbol as well as spiritual evidence to all mankind of the worth and dignity of the sacred calling of every woman, as a mother. As we study the life of Mary, the mother of the Savior of the world, the pattern of motherhood is clearly marked.

This is the second article in a three-part series hosted on the Mormon Newsroom.

"To be a good Mormon is also to be a good citizen

Can Latter-day Saints fulfill their roles as citizens in the societies where they live and also be true to their faith? Some may question the very premise — why must there be tension between church and country? Religion and government can’t ignore each other, nor need they be enemies. The spheres of spirituality and law differ, but they cooperate best when freedom of conscience and the common good make space one for another."

"Major Earthquake Strikes Nepal
Church determining how it can best help to relieve suffering
SALT LAKE CITY — 
"Our thoughts and prayers are with all those in Nepal impacted by Saturday’s earthquake and particularly those who have lost loved ones," Church spokesman Eric Hawkins said today. Initial reports indicate that over 1,400 people lost their lives in the magnitude-7.8 quake and thousands more are homeless.

The humanitarian arm of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is determining how it can best help to relieve the suffering.

One senior missionary couple from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is serving in the area and they are safe."

"The three women who have spent the past five years together running the LDS Church's international children's organization are splitting up.

One of them is leaving the Primary General Presidency for a new calling, so all three have bittersweet feelings heading into the faith's springtime general conference, which begins Saturday night with the General Women's Session."

We live in perilous times. Our time, as no other before, is fraught with confusion and deceit at every turn intended to ultimately blind us spiritually. Technology plays a key role in enabling the circumstance. With even a partial obstruction to our vision, we are at risk of bumping into the unexpected, or worse become lost.

Redefining Marriage and Polygamy: "Marriage is being redefined in a few countries across the world. In fact on Tuesday, April 28, 2015, the Supreme Court of the United States of America will hear arguments on whether or not the states of that nation have the constitutional right to define marriage solely as a union between one man and one woman. Many members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints find themselves asking or answering some tough questions about redefining marriage and polygamy."

"The world always clamors for our attention. As covenant women, we have to be diligent with how we spend our time and the things we work for and involve ourselves in. In order to stir up contention and to divide us, individuals, the media, and social groups engage in divisiveness and the politics of destruction to get Latter-day Saint women to contend with each other. So I asked over 100 friends and acquaintances what Mormon women want."

"The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has gotten behind this series to support this worthy effort. A Mormon Newsroom article quotes Downey as saying, “I think people are hungry for hope, and what a better source to go back to than scripture.” After the General Conference sessions, KSL aired it’s own special on the series, “Finding Faith in Prime Time.”"

Information for April 2015 General Conference of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints: This much anticipated meeting will be held in the LDS Conference Center, Salt Lake City, Utah. This is an exciting time for Mormons worldwide!  We have the opportunity to hear from our Prophet and President of the Church, Thomas S. Monson, as well as many other prominent Church leaders to receive relevant counsel and direction to help strengthen us as individuals, and as a people, committed to living the gospel of Jesus Christ.
