Motherhood and Priesthood

A friend of mine posted this article on Facebook recently:

Empowering LDS Women: Motherhood is the Equivalent of Priesthood?

I am often a bit hesitant or skeptical when I read articles with these kinds of titles, because it seems that the internet has too-often become a forum for women to criticize our priesthood leaders and propose myriad ways that they should have more "power" or "say" in the Church. But I appreciated that the author of this article seems to have spent a lot of time trying to reconcile her understanding to the revealed word and the direction of modern Prophets rather than doing the opposite: trying to make the doctrine conform to her notions of fairness or equality. As a result, she has some really interesting and lovely insights.
