I am proud to be an LDS woman.
I feel that the church empowers women.
I feel that the church holds the contributions of women to the home, the church and the world as sacred and hugely significant.
I feel that the church's leadership exemplifies men and women, working together, as equals, to accomplish a common goal of sharing and living the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
I believe that the Relief Society organization is a powerful force that sweeps the earth with purpose, service and Christlike love.
I believe that LDS women everywhere have felt the loving arms of their Relief Society sisters extended around them in a scene of non-judgmental fellowship, friendship and love.
I believe that attending worship services is a time to commune with God, learn the teachings of Jesus Christ and to uplift and inspire each other. I do not believe it is a time to make a statement with our wardrobe.
I believe God wants us to attend church, no matter what we are wearing.
I believe that if women are worried or concerned about their role in the church that they should spend their time building a strong relationship with Jesus Christ and God, serving others and showing Christlike love and acceptance to all around them. I believe if those women take their concerns to the Lord in prayer that He will magnify their understanding of their worthiness.
I believe that that change comes from the inside out and not by wearing certain attire to church services.
I believe the core of the gospel is Jesus Christ and nothing else.
I believe we, as women, can choose to use the Internet to organize service opportunities, share testimonies and extend love to others. I believe using the Internet to gather LDS women in a silent, but public protest/statement is a waste of time, technology and testimony.
I believe that women who feel undervalued or unequal in the church should work hard to make changes for good by uplifting and inspiring women in any way they can. First, within themselves and their families, second within their Ward/Branch and third within the world.
I am an LDS woman...and that's my two cents.
