A young girl who visited here said:
"There is a part of God that flows out of the missionaries and lands on you. You feel special and loved."
It's so important for all of us to remember the tremendous sacrifice, dedication, and joy that built Nauvoo. We have such a rich heritage. The second photo is Hiram Dayton's property. You can see my white house at the far right. There's only one lot between us! Love you!

I know Christ's Atonement can be so powerful in our lives - even on the simple things. I had an experience this week working in a site with a person I had a few small issues with. I said a silent prayer, because you can't really teach with the spirit if you have any unkind feelings at all. As I prayed for it, I was flooded with charity for that individual and the spirit returned. I know it works! Have a great week!
President Ezra Taft Benson said: "Christ changes men, and changed men can change the world. Men changed for Christ will be captained by Christ. … Men captained by Christ will be consumed in Christ. … Their will is swallowed up in His will. (See John 5:30.) They do always those things that please the Lord. (See John 8:29.) Not only would they die for the Lord, but more important they want to live for Him" (in Conference Report, Oct. 1985, 5–6; or Ensign, Nov. 1985, 6).

It was such an electrifying experience! It's amazing when you feel the Holy Ghost like a steady stream directing every answer! What a powerful experience in teaching by the spirit. I feel so happy! I'm eager to use the Teaching Center on a regular basis. I love it!! Have a great week!
The Teaching Center accesses calls, emails, orders, and chats sent to mormon.org. As the missionaries were setting it up on my computer a chat came on, and they took it! The man on the other end asked if God answers prayers of people who are not LDS. I felt the Holy Ghost guiding every response I made, and I instantly knew exactly how to answer.
Part of my chat:
The choir did a wonderful job, and some people told me it was the most beautiful choir number they had ever heard. The Lord certainly blessed us!
The picture is one Andrea sent me for Mother's Day of Amanda and Lucy.
Here's my fond farewell to working closely with the Brigham Young Home - the beautiful back yard and the two blue robin eggs in the nest outside the council room window.

The more I learn, the more amazed I am at what a magnificent Prophet Joseph Smith actually was. As the scriptures say: "Joseph Smith, the Prophet and Seer of the Lord, has done more, save Jesus only, for the salvation of men in this world, than any other man that ever lived in it..." D&C 135:3 I know that is true! I love and revere Joseph Smith as the Prophet of the Restoration.
