  Heavenly Mother - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Heavenly Mother (also referred to as Mother in Heaven) is the wife and feminine counterpart of God the Father.
The theological underpinnings of a belief in Heavenly Mother is attributed to Joseph Smith, Jr.
Heavenly Mother is sometimes taught in the Sunday School (Mormonism), consistently with the theology above, and lack of more information about Her is epxlained that since, unlike Jesus Christ and God the Father, Heavenly Mother does not play a role in the salvation, and/or because avoiding drawing attention helps preserve the sacredness of Her existence.

 Heavenly Mother   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
Though the 1995 reference to “heavenly parents” is difficult to interpret outside the lines of a Heavenly Mother, I agree that it could possibly hold the interpretation that you suggest, that both God and Jesus are referred to as “Heavenly Parents” and the fact that there is more than one creates a plural.
Though she is certainly concerned and occupied with the affairs of Her children, I don’t think we necessarily must assume that she is a part of the patriarchal triumvirate that represents the governing force in the universe.
There is an obvious connection between the two in that one of the few things we would assume as to the roles played by Heavenly Mother is that she is the spirit mother of all spirit beings.

 Refutation of the LDS Doctrine of the "Eternal Mother"   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
The Mormon concept of a "heavenly mother" is refereed to in a hymn by church leader Eliza R. Snow, and remains an officially approved doctrine.
This doctrine is tied in with their beliefs that we all existed as "spirit children" in the spirit world with a heavenly "father" and "mother" beofre being sent to earth to take on a body.
Apparently the "eternal mother" is not to be "worshipped", being rather an "eternal mother" that a "goddess"but if she conceives spirit children (as we shall see later on, this is what Mormon doctrine teaches) then she is surely as much a "goddess" as the Mormon "father" is a "god"?

If the Mother and the Father are co-equal, co-eternal, are in fact one in a deeper and more mysterious way than the oneness of the Father and the Son, then she would be no less concerned for our spiritual welfare than is the Father.
The church teaches that mothers are and should be the primary nurturers of their children; but the Heavenly Mother is kept exiled from her children.

 Women and Authority: The Mormon Concept of a Mother in Heaven
From first being the Mother of God, Mary eventually became the mother of everyone, the Queen of Heaven, as she took on a mediating function and became a divine presence to whom prayers could be addressed.
To many the concept of a mother in heaven was a fitting expression of a larger movement which aimed at raising the status of women and expanding their rights and opportunities.
A mother in heaven thus exemplified and embodied all those maternal qualities which men had experienced as so warm and soul-satisfying in their own mothers (or which they perhaps had not experienced and so desperately wanted) and which were generally absent in a male god reflecting a stern, closed-in image of Victorian manhood.

 Feminist Mormon Housewives » Women and Authority: The Mormon Concept of a Mother in Heaven
There is a vague idea of Heavenly Mother in Mormonism, but it’s mostly based on the hymn “O My Father” and doesn’t go much beyond the fact of her existence.
For the most part, Heavenly Mother is whatever the individual Mormon sees her as, and thus she meets our needs (as a mother does).
In that context, considering that Heavenly Father is ALWAYS there, then there would be no need for Heavenly Mother to protect herself, which doesn’t mean she is incapable of doing so, but rather that she just doesn’t choose to do so at this time.
