Our podcast episode from two weeks ago, Terryl Givens’ conversation with Claudia Bushman, sparked some ideas that we thought really needed to be explored further, particularly around what Latter-day Saint women can do here and now to celebrate and vitalize the feminine divine in their own lives and in the lives of their daughters.
In this week’s episode, Aubrey Chaves invited Carol Lynn Pearson, Jana Spangler, and Becky Edwards to explore how the unique doctrine of a Heavenly Mother can inspire spiritual practices and traditions that acknowledge Her reality in our spiritual lives. And what can women do to ritualize and celebrate milestones in women’s lives?
Carol Lynn Pearson is the author of “Goodbye, I Love You”, “Finding Mother God”, the primary song “I’ll Walk With You” and many other books, poems and plays. She’s been a powerful voice in the Latter-day Saint tradition for many years.
Jana Spangler is a counselor/coach at Symmetry Solutions and a graduate of The Living School, a two-year program under the direction of Fr. Richard Rohr and the Center for Action and Contemplation.
Becky Edwards is a faith-based mentor, blogger, author, and speaker who has presented at many events including BYU Women’s Conference.
