I have recently had a hard time with having a miscarriage. Will new children be brought into the world even after the second coming? I have heard that there will be no temptation during the millennium. If this is true would there still be children?

Allyson,

I am truly sorry to hear about your miscarriage, they are never easy for any woman with a desire to bear children. When we open our scriptures and read Doctrine and Covenants 45:58 it states, “And the earth shall be given unto them for an group of babys mormoninheritance; and they shall multiply and wax strong, and their children shall grow up without sin unto salvation.”

From the Church’s Gospel Principles chapter 45 ¬†we also are able to read, “During the Millennium, mortals will still live on earth, and they will continue to have children as we do now (see D&C 45:58). Joseph Smith said that immortal beings will frequently visit the earth. These resurrected beings will help with the government and other work. (See Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith, sel. Joseph Fielding Smith [1976], 268.)

People will still have their agency, and for a time many will be free to continue with their religions and ideas. Eventually everyone will confess that Jesus Christ is the Savior.”

Thus, the Church doctrine seems pretty clear Allyson that we will be able to multiply and replenish the earth during the Millennium.
