What We Believe

Last week, I attended a BYU Education Week class given by Stephanie at Diapers and Divinity called “Women as Gospel Scholars.” Her class was chock full of great ideas for gospel study, as well as powerful quotes about the power of women in God’s plan. I’ll be sharing some of the great resources she shared in another post.

But today, I just wanted to extend an invitation that comes from her presentation as well as from my own personal experience. When we talk about women in the scriptures, the focus is often understandably on stories of women such as Eve or Ruth or Esther or Mary or Sarah or Sariah or Emma Smith.

But there is much more we can experience when seeking for insight and information about women in the scriptures. Stephanie used a simple example in her presentation (which also illustrated the power of the new search engine at LDS.org). If I’m remembering correctly, Stephanie typed in the search “she or her” and got over 1700 results for verses that contained those words.
