Me too. I'm she as well. You were a little confused about me too??? :)

> And as far as the Goddes, or God, in my faith there is both. We recognize that life cannot exist without the male and the female. If I remember correctly, it's quite similar to LDS teaching. In LDS teaching, we have a heavenly father and a heavenly mother. The mother though, doesn't seem to be spoken of very much. She doesn't seem to be prayed to or discussed in any debth. I would be really interested if you might shed some light on that.

Do you know anyone with a father who didn't also have a mother? It's just logic. The only place I am aware of that anything is written about a mother in heaven is in the hymn, "O My Father", and it is mostly sung at funerals. If you want the link ... click on church music and when you find the song, click "words & music".,5082,4-1,00.html

Every belief came from somewhere and is rooted in something. Most world religions can be traced back to Abraham.

The Bible teaches us to call God "Father in Heaven", but it doesn't teach us why. There is only one who can teach us why, and He has chosen to keep Mother hidden too. Does that mean she cannot exist? She can in our hearts, minds, and our imaginations. You can call her Godess if you like. Just because we have a different understanding of her probably means nothing just yet. What happens when you pray to her? Do you get answers? As you know, we pray only to God the Father, and close in the name of Jesus Christ Amen. We do not pray directly to Jesus, but Jesus takes our prayer to the Father. That's as well as I can explain it here.

> That's a couple of things your last post brought up in my mind. Thank you so much for sharing.
