Heavenly Mother Sings
Heavenly Mother Sings < read by Melody
hymns hidden in the heart
melodies we hum
wind in the garden–
music made of grape vines
ballad of comfort in sea-swell for
sailors thrown to knees
requiem on mountain top for
climbers grown cold–
She pulls our heartstrings
tunes them to Hers and to
Her son who sings with us–
Song of Redeeming Love.

These videos were created for Latter-day Saint parents and allies to voice their love for their LGBT brothers and sisters, sons and daughters. They want to give a message of comfort and support to other parents who are navigating the difficult conflicts that can arise in families around this issue.
Quote of the Month
"For centuries, well-meaning people have buried some of the most important insights in the scriptures by trying to subsume all truth into a category called "historical fact." I will continue to insist that there is absolutely no reason for us to do this. Calling something a "poem" or a "story" does not diminish it, nor does saying that something did not happen imply that it is not true" (Dr. Michael Austin, Re-reading Job: Understanding the Ancient World's Greatest Poem, 147).
