Power to the Sister Missionaries! Interview with Wendy Ulrich

April 25, 2019

Do women have Priesthood authority in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints? Do women who serve as missionaries do so with Priesthood Power? Sometimes these questions are hard to answer to people within the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, let alone to people outside of the faith. Part of the problem may be with the way we are accustomed to speaking of “priesthood” as a concept generally, other times it is because we come to that discussion with an assumption as to what “priesthood” means at all.

Don’t fear, Wendy Ulrich is here. She has written a book, published by Deseret Book, entitled Live Up to Our Privileges: Women, Power, and Priesthood. In this interview with Wendy Ulrich, we discuss this often controversial topic, as well as help to empower both men and women to understand the Priesthood and how both men and women missionaries teach with Priesthood Power to do a Priesthood responsibility. This is a must listen to episode for Sister Missionaries!
