Her Conversion was Worth More Than Anything Else

See the source image

When Sarah Barrow Blake joined the Church in England in 1857, what were the two immediate repercussions?
a.                  A cold from her baptism and her husband leaving her
b.                  Her non-member husband losing his job and her parents disowning her
c.                   Her children kicked out of school and her losing her job
d.                  The local merchants not selling to their family and losing her family plot at the local church
Yesterday’s answer:
A   The death of a missionary in the late 1880’s
From the life of Susan Leggett Clark:   Susan became the mother of ten children, all born in Farmington, Utah. She liked to take the time to do things well and was an excellent seamstress.
She loved poetry and sometimes wrote it. She loved a beautiful yard and garden with lawn and flowers.
Susan cared for aged family members, and in 1888 she arranged for her aged aunt Susanna Leggett to come to America and live with her.
Her son, John Alexander, died while on a mission in Palestine which was very difficult for her since it was not possible to bring his body home for burial. His grave later helped BYU receive permission for their center in Jerusalem.
