In Line for . . .

Elizabeth Daniels Casto

Prior to Elizabeth Daniels Casto joining the Church in England in 1841, she was in line for what?
a.                  The Queen of England
b.                  A rich inheritance
c.                   Lady-in-waiting to the Queen
d.                  Priestess in the Church of England
Yesterday’s answer:
D   The hymns
From the life of Hannah Jane Shaw Burridge:   In 1852, George [her husband] was introduced to the “Book of Mormon.” He read it and believed it. Hannah feared this new religion and had her Pastor hold a special prayer meeting to pray for George. George resorted to the use of a little trickery to get Hannah to be fair and sensible about the Church. He knew the Mormons were to hold a meeting and as he loved the hymns they sang, and as Hannah loved to sing, he was sure they would appeal to her. On the appointed day he asked her to accompany him for a boat ride on the blue waters of the lagoon. Waiting over the rippling waves came the voices of the people singing to their God. Stunned, Hannah sat as one dazed. “They cannot be bad and be able to sing like that.”
