GREAT FAITH


Yesterday Ben and I watched The Work and The Glory 2. It really got me thinking about how dedicated the early saints were to the building up of Zion. Half of them didn't understand what Zion was but they followed the Prophet Joseph because they knew that's what God wanted. Many of the early saints just uprooted their lives, left everything to be obedient to God's commands. It made me think could I have done it? Although I don't have a lot of expensive things (actually half of our stuff was free or given to us, which we are very grateful for) but I am rather attached to living in an apartment that has heating, a comfortable place too sleep, somewhere to shower and has cooking appliances, you know all the normal stuff. If I was asked to leave and travel on foot to a place miles away with no answers to where I would live I don't know if I would be quite so diligent as those early saints.
I hope and pray that I can develop greater faith like the Prophet Joseph Smith and those that followed him in righteousness.

I love reading your insights into the gospel. I don't know if I would have had the kind of faith the pioneers had if I were in their shoes, either. I also love that new picture of Jack in the hat and scarf. Adorable!
