The Effects of the Utah War

Those that think the Utah War did little to change life in the Salt Lake Valley are mistaken. The Utah War definitely changed the lives of the members of the church, including the loss of lives.
What organization was suspended during the Utah War?
a.                  The Primary
b.                  The Young Men and Women
c.                   The Relief Society
d.                  The Sunday School
Yesterday’s answer:
(C)   Sold berries and firewood
Porter [Rockwell] was also forming a deep attachment for the young Prophet, who was eight years his senior—a loyalty that was to grow so firm and lasting that in later years he risked his life many times for the safety of the man he so learned to love. The attachment was already so strong that young Porter, after a day’s work on the farm was over, found himself picking berries by moonlight and selling them so that he could give money to the Prophet for the purpose of translating and publishing the Book of Mormon. When there were no berries to pick, he would gather wood, haul it to town, and sell it for the same purpose.
