Question

 

Gramps,

When we go to celestial kingdom, will we be able to see Heavenly Mother, as the plan of salvation was based on family? Any insight on Heavenly Mother?

Answer

 

Robert,

When we enter the Celestial kingdom I am reminded of the words of a favorite hymn, “O My Father,” as we sing “Father, Mother, may I meet you…with your mutual approbation let me come and dwell with you.” As I think upon your question, a thought enters into my heart, “what perfect mother would not want to see and meet her children upon their return”?

I would propose that if we are able to see our Heavenly Father, then we will be able to see and visit with our Heavenly Mother. I, personally, think it would be odd to enter the Celestial kingdom and never see our Heavenly Mother. We know, dear brother, we have a Heavenly Mother, and I can not think of any good reason as to why she wouldn’t want to see us again, or why she would be kept from seeing us.

Gender is an essential characteristic of individual worth in our pre-mortal, mortal, and our eternal identity and purpose. With how much my wife loves seeing the return of our children, I assume Heavenly Mother is the same way.
