As a woman and member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, I enjoy the blessings and power of the priesthood on a daily basis. Yet, I’m not a priesthood holder. For some reason, there are some women who are frustrated, or feel less important because they don’t hold the priesthood. I’ve never really felt that way – but that’s because I feel like the Priesthood blesses me regardless of who holds it. The Priesthood is God’s Power. No where does this idea limit men or women. It is the power of the priesthood that created the earth. Priesthood = Power, and all people can be blessed by the Priesthood power – as God loves all of His children.
Sister Julie B. Beck puts it really well in this video…Watch it here.
“We need never confuse the idea of those who hold the priesthood in trust with the priesthood. The Priesthood is God’s power to create, bless, lead, and serve as He does.”
