1 Nephi 9:6

I added the Lady and made the language gender-inclusive (men to all).

6 But the Lord and Lady knoweth all things from the beginning; wherefore, they prepareth a way to accomplish all their works among the children of all; for behold, they hath all power unto the fulfilling of all their words. And thus it is. Amen.

Doctrine and Covenants 6:15-16

 Here I added the Goddess. While adding it, I thought about what it would mean for me to leave it at just the Goddess, that only She knew my thoughts and intents of my heart. It was a lovely thought.
15 Behold, thou knowest that thou hast inquired of me and I did enlighten thy mind; and now I tell thee these things that thou mayest know that thou hast been enlightened by the Spirit of truth; 
16 Yea, I tell thee, that thou mayest know that there is none else save Goddess and God that knowest thy thoughts and the intents of thy heart.

John 14:26-27

For this scripture, I changed "Father" to Parents and I removed the gender reference to the Holy Ghost. That is a bit of an experiment on my part: some people feel the Holy Ghost does not have a gender, or couple possibly be feminine. I left it so you can choose your favorite theory.

26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Parents will send in my name, shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.

27 Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

2 Nephi 31:20

Here, I added the Goddess and changed "Father" to "Parents" and made the passage more inclusive by changing "men" to "people." 

I found this scripture as a reference in the Lorenzo Snow manual and when I went to look at it, I found it rather resonates with me at the moment. Press forward, have hope, love God and Goddess.

20 Wherefore, ye must press forward with a steadfastness in Christ, having a perfect brightness of hope, and a love of Goddess and God and of all people. Wherefore, if ye shall press forward, feasting upon the word of Christ, and endure to the end, behold, thus saith the Parents: Ye shall have eternal life.

Doctrine and Covenants 82:19

Happy Valentine's Day! Love your neighbors, it's what the church is about! I added the Goddess here.

19 Every man seeking the interest of his neighbor, and doing all things with an eye single to the glory of God and Goddess.

Doctrine and Covenants 8:7-8

Sorry about the unexplained absence. I had a baby last month. But since most wards had Sunday School lesson 5 last Sunday, I thought I'd share this scripture from it. I added the Goddess. My ward had stake conference, so we'll be behind the rest of you.

7 Behold, there is no other power, save the power of God and Goddess, that can cause this gift of Aaron to be with you. 
8 Therefore, doubt not, for it is the gift of Goddess and God; and you shall hold it in your hands, and do marvelous works; and no power shall be able to take it away out of your hands, for it is the work of Goddess and God.
