Swearing Getting the Better of Him

See the source image

Abraham O. Woodruff was able to work with a non-member man, cleansing the man of all of his vices but one, profanity. How was Elder Woodruff finally able to get the man to stop swearing?
a.                  Borrowing the man’s horses to dig a canal
b.                  A swearing jar
c.                   Counseling
d.                  Giving him a temple recommend
Yesterday’s answer:
B   His corn bread for their cake made from crickets
From the life of Moses Thatcher:   Although he was only four years old when the members of the Church were driven from Nauvoo, the memory of the fear and terror of that exodus remained with Moses Thatcher throughout his life. The rigor of crossing the plains in the second pioneer company and of being “hungry for an entire year” after reaching the Salt Lake Valley likewise impressed the growing boy. His father’s family, with many others, augmented their meager food supply with sego roots and “cut thistles.” At the age of seven, Moses was given the responsibility of caring for grazing sheep. He recalled how hungry Indians would catch a lamb and hold it hostage until the young shepherd would agree to trade his cornbread lunch for their cake made from crickets.
