Praise To The Man

"Sacrifice brings forth the blessings of Heaven"
166 years ago today the Prophet Joesph and his brother Hyrum were killed at Carthage Jail. They sealed their testimonies with their blood and I will forever be thankful. Tonight we read Doctrine and Covenants 135 with the boys and then sang "Praise To The Man" together. It was a powerful moment. One that hopefully made an impression on my children. I hope that they will realize that the blessings they enjoy each and every day, and the gospel that is a part of them came at a price. I am truly thankful for all that Joseph Smith did to restore the gospel to the earth. Truly a Prophet of God.
