I love hearing stories about my ancestors, stories that would have been lost if someone had not kept records. One of my ancestors paid for several saints to come to the new world from South Africa. From some of the records we learn that on their first attempt to come to America, the boat started taking on water and the boat had to return for repairs. When they finally made it to Utah this ancestor was asked to help settle the Bear Lake area, he was then known as the town doctor of the area. I have always wondered what it is about Bear Lake that I love so much, more than the beauty of the area, perhaps it is the links to my forefathers and mothers.
By keeping records, our great, great, great grandchildren will have the opportunity to learn about us, our thoughts, our motives and our dreams.
Here is to some happy record keeping.

I feel so blessed to belong to a church that has the covenants and saving ordinances of the Lord's religion on this earth. Our challenge is to teach our Heavenly Father's daughters to understand the importance of upholding our end of the covenant, and continuing to live worthily of the ordinances of the priesthood of God. If you like these elements, visit summer driggs, they all come from her Comforts of Home kit. Kimberly

Our young women have the ability to influence their fathers, brothers and young men the attend church with. Teaching them how to use this influence to help their brothers stay close to their Heavenly Father and prepare to serve the Lord for 2 years and remain close to the spiritual aspects of this life.
The restoration of the priesthood to the earth, made possible so many ordinances and blessing to God's children. But with those blessing comes responsiblity, which is the focus of this lesson. My hope is to convey to the young women the important oaths and covenants our fathers, brothers, husbands and sons take upon themselves to perform our Fathers work in this day. Kimberly

Many of our young women today, don't always have a Father living in her home. While we must be sensative to their situations, our youth need to learn the intentions of our Heavenly Father. Our Heavenly Father set the model of a family, a Father and a Mother. This life is difficult and that model does not always endure the challenges of this life, they are still important.
My hope is that each of our youth will learn to love their families and respect their fathers, especially their Heavenly Father.

I am so grateful for what my Savior voluntarily did for me, I am sure each of you feel the same. This time of year we are each given the special gift of time. Time to remember what He did for us individually. I can not thank Him enough for releasing me from the bonds of death, and providing the opportunity to live with Him and our Father again. Happy Easter, Kimberly
