All of us are children of loving Heavenly Parents. As such, we believe our natures are divine, and that our lives have eternal purpose. Such knowledge gives our lives a sense of meaning and direction.

There are many voices that bombard women in the world today. Some suggest that our worth is tied to body shape or size, or to job titles, or to social and economic class, or to other external, mortal, physical measures of worth. We all hear of women who struggle with an ‘identity crisis’ or low self-esteem or other feelings of self-doubt. The belief that we have eternal identity and purpose can serve as an anchor in all of our lives.
