I’m a fully active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and I attend the temple regularly. I believe women should hold the priesthood. We have so much to give, and there are many ways we could bless others and help with the responsibilities of administering the Church. What’s the harm in women being ordained of God?
Years ago, I had a very perceptive and inspired bishop. He gave me wise counsel, particularly with regard to relationships. This same bishop held a special “family home evening” with all of us singles. In the meeting, he said that some day women would hold the priesthood. One of the men, a football player, raised his hand and asked, “You mean through the men, right?” “No,” he answered, “women themselves will hold the priesthood.” I have held onto this, and I hope in my lifetime that I see it happen.
