What a fascinating look into why our Church leaders are mentioning our Heavenly Parents now far more often than ever before.
Mormonism's "heavenly parents" are getting more earthly mentions from top LDS leaders, especially since the Utah-based faith published an essay last year affirming its belief in a divine mother.
LDS researcher Christian Anderson has been tracking the number of times twice-yearly General Conference speakers refer to heavenly parents.
Among his findings: Conference sermons this year used the term a record 15 times. That's 67 percent higher than the previous mark of nine set in 2013 and 2015.
"Clearly something new is going on," Anderson writes in a blog at the Zelophehad's Daughters website.

We Are All a Part of God's Family is a beautiful painting that perfectly illustrates the love of our Heavenly Father and Mother and the connection we all share as their spirit children.
Celebrating distinctive LDS doctrines, this landmark children's book illuminates the essential role of families both in heaven and on earth. No matter where we live, what we look like, or what we believe, all of us are children of Heavenly Parents who love us perfectly.
