To the Women in My Life

Dear Women,
I do not necessarily consider myself a person to receive super big or new revelations - personal or universal.  I recognize the trouble that I sometimes have (as do we all) to recognize the promptings of the spirit in my life.  I am not perfect in this area, HOWEVER, this week I truly felt prompted to write the following to you all - some of the women in my life.

If there is one thing that I have learned during my mission (and I have learned many things), is that, to our Heavenly Father's utter saddness, in our world today there is an obvious lack of respect - especially towards women.  I have seen that more now than ever before.  

Every day we see blatant lack of respect for womanhood and motherhood - on the television, magazines, videogames, literature, movies, and just in the street.  It surrounds us, and it disgusts me.  I can only imagine how our Heavenly Father must feel.  I am absolutely certain that each of you have felt that attack or disregard for your heavenly heritage many times, if not on a daily basis.  

My purpose in writing all this is to testify to each of you, as an official representative of our Savior Jesus Christ, that you are worth more than you know.  Each of you is a DAUGHTER OF OUR HEAVENLY FATHER.  I hope that name and title has meaning to you.  You are loved beyond comprehension.  You have a purpose and responsibility here on this earth that may not be completely understood by "the world", but that is perfectly understood to our Savior.  Do not ever let the world be your measuring guide.  Only strive to be what your Heavenly Father wishes you to be.  

I testify that each of you is DIVINE.  
DO NOT FORGET THAT NOR DOUBT THAT!

I love you all and want you to know that you have all had a great influence in my life, for which I am eternally grateful.  I thank my heavenly father for the loving, caring, and supportive influence of women that I have been blessed with in my life. 

With Utmost Sincerity,
Elder Gabriel Christiansen
