Yesterday’s answer:
C   Sang Church hymns
From the life of Johanne Marie Thomsen Christensen:   Johanne Marie Thomsen was born in Denmark, 1847, the third child in a family of six children. Had she not been a convert to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, at the age of fourteen she would have been baptized into the Lutheran Church.
Thomine, (Mina) her sister, was working away from home during the day, but at night when she returned, she would sing unfamiliar hymns and told about a new religion. The hymns sparked an interest in the new religion, and as a result the family was baptized.
