The following from the autobiography of Sarah Leavitt:
We soon arrived at the Bluffs where we found some of our friends, Sister Adams, William Snow and his wife Lydia. I don't remember how many others. Sister Adams and Lydia were both sick, and after a long and severe sickness, they both died. We could get no house and had to camp out. This was in November, 1846. I soon took the chills and fever again.
The boys made a camp of hay and I crawled into it, glad to get any place of shelter. I had to live there while they built a house and suffered very much for want of proper food and with the cold, as we could have no fire in a hay camp. There was the place that the disorder started in my head that has troubled me ever since. I had a pain in my head that was very severe. I had smoked for eight years before I believed the gospel, and when I believed, before I had seen the Doctrine and Covenants, or heard of an elder, something told me I had better leave off smoking. I obeyed that still small voice and left off smoking for eight years. When I had this pain in my head, I thought if I would smoke, perhaps it would relieve my head. I rolled some tobacco up in a paper and smoked it. It stopped the pain. I continued to do so every time the pain came on. At last I sent and got a pipe and have used one ever since.
I don't know whether I did right or not, but I am sure the anger of the Lord is not kindled against me, for I confess His hand in all things and try to keep His commandments.

Go to and check out the updated index. I'm currently linking the index to the blog stories. This will be a great resource for anyone researching a talk, lesson, or just for general knowledge. Just click on the date of the story that you are interested in and you will be taken to the blog story (Currently, I've linked from A-H and am working on I-L). Test it out and give it a try. I will also work on the pictures. Many of the early pictures I used when I first started the blog back in Mar. of 2012 and continuing into 2013 are small and blurred, only because I wasn't as practiced when I first started the blog. I will be updating many pictures. Also, I'm about two years behind (June 2014 to present) on adding these stories to the index. I have a lot of work to do, but with time I will make the blog more user friendly.
