'Unmarried' leader is almost a celebrity among LDS
Sister Dew speaks to our place in the world as women of God. Is there an
address where I may write her?
anyone know how one would get in touch with Sis. Dew???
I greatly appreciate Sister Dew. She has inspired my life in her talks and
lectures. I honor and respect womanhood, always have, as that is what my mother
taught me as a youth. If the Lord would grant that this special daughter of his
would agree in due process, I should be honored to ask her to be my wife.
What an incredible example. The words sound trite, but they really are true.
Unmarried for some time (it seemed to me), I gained strength from watching and
listening to Sister Dew. Now married and having the challenges of marriage and
motherhood, I still draw consistently from the wisdom the Lord has taught
through her, especially through "Are We Not All Mothers?" (a talk she gave in
the Sept 2001 General Relief Society meeting). Thanks, Sister Dew, for relying
on the Spirit and being real. Reading this article has inspired me once again,
waking me up to the why of challenges we never expected and disappointments
(i.e., opportunities) we may never have chosen.
My guess is she isn't married because Mormon men are afraid of her. Mormon men
want to be the "authority" and are probably intimidated by a woman who is more
successful and intelligent than they are. Just a guess.
Many times in life we look at those who are successful and are well known and
say "Oh my they live this perfect life, and have it all" We think that they
never struggle anymore, that they could not possibly see what you are going
through. With Sheri Dew it is refreshing to see that she is real, she still
takes one day at a time as she has her down time just like the rest of us. When
we take our eyes off the celebrity and look at the person we truly see she is
just a beautiful daughter of our Heavenly Father just like us women. She uses
the talents she has been given to truly just "GLORIFY OUR LIVING GOD" For that
I do admire her. What a sweet and wonderful lady she is. God's purpose for her
is being fulfilled in more ways than our worldly eyes can see. Great job
Sherri... You are a great example of following the Lord no matter what.
I am a Y.S.A living in New Zealand and I heard Sister Dew speak at our national
Y.S.A conference earlier this year. She was wonderful! I could have listened to
her speak for 3 days non-stop.I just beam on the inside when I'm
encouraged by righteous people, particularly by righteous women. I
often find myself expressing gratitude in my prayers that there are good woman
alive today. I hope the Lord's women never stop speaking, I shudder to think
where I would have to look for examples if not to them.Good work Sister
Dew! Keep it up
This article is still getting attention. She is a fantastic person and perfect
role model for all women everywhere. Her marriage has evidently been postponed
to allow her to serve and teach all of us. I love her forthright manner,
amazing wisdom, and no-nonsense style. My hat's off to you, Ms. Dew.
I just finished one of her books (just wonderful words) and I realized how down
to earth she is yet her focus is on the Lord and Our Heavenly Father. What a
wonderful example for all women throughout the world to see and hear a daughter
of God testifying of truth and to encourage us to be steadfast and unmovable.
Her teachings and her lifestyle is for many of us an example of how we as
daughters of God can and need to be steadfast and inmoveable. How wonderful that
she is sharing her gifts with us.
What a life changing woman. I have always heard about this woman and her
tireless work for the lord, but I just got the chance to meet her at a meeting
in Rexburg. She is more amazing than I had even heard (I didn't think that was
possible). She inspired me and changed my life. I will never forget her words
when I told her she was my new hero. She immediately told me that I needed to
aim higher than her. At the moment when someone is pouring their gratitude
toward her (when it would be easiest to take credit), she makes sure to give
glory to our Heavenly Father. Absolutely an Amazing messanger and "True
Sheri Dew is an exceedingly accomplished, multi-talented, personable, amazing
PERSON regardless of her gender! If she were a man, there would not be the
intense, relentless interest in her unmarried status. In one article about her
life which was, probably, intending to be reassuring and kind about her
singleness as a Latter-day Saint, there was a statement saying that, no doubt,
she was being held in reserve for Ammon. Casting no dispersions on Ammon, why
is it felt that anyone has the right to make Sister Dew defend herself as to why
she is unmarried. I am not a 'Feminist' per se but, perhaps, Ammon is being
held in reserve for her! In 2008, shouldn't society be beyond relegating people
to stereotypes and molds? You can learn more about Sister Dew via byutv.com or
by reading one of her books, articles and/or speeches.
Sheri wonders why people love her so much? Just like the article said. "She is
a pure honest human being." What more would anyone want to be?I
just watched her on TV speaking about President Hinckley (the funeral is today)
and she is such a wonderful person.
I have been married for 30 years with 6 six children, and I have to say Sheri
Dew has been extremely inspiring to me. My daughter is 29 and unmarried and I
look up to her. I always say she will be the next Sheri Dew as they seem to
have much the same characteristics and both try to do the Lord's will while
accepting what is dealt them.
No, she's not married:( She was in Orlando this weekend speaking to the members
of several stakes. I absolutely love her! She is incredibly amazing!
I also heard she married recently. Is there any truth to this rumor? Thanks
Sister Dew always spoke to my soul...I also heard from a friend of a
friend of a friend (not always a good source of truth:-) ) of hers that she did
get married recently. How could we find out?
I had heard that she had gotten married recently. Is that correct information?
I heard her speak recently and wanted to know more about her. Great article.
That was a great article. I have often wanted to know more about Sheri Dew. I
love her! She is a great woman and an inspiration to all LDS women.
