Amy Stuart Wolcott:
Saving this for the future and thought I’d share. #DandC109 This article talks about gathering the descendents of the Smith family. I didn’t realize there were so few descendents of Joseph Smith Jr. that are baptized members of the church (as compared to Hyrum Smith). Good read. www.lds.org/church/news/smith-family-reunion-gathers-scattered-family-builds-testimonies?lang=eng&query=hyrum+page

Maggie Grover Bacher: that is because the descendants of jr. are where the “other” mormons come from. they believed that the role of prophet should follow the common but not consistent pattern set in the bible of father son. the pattern applies more to kings than prophets in the scriptures.

Amy Stuart Wolcott: Yes, very interesting. But after all these years – and after the growth of the our church, I would have thought there would be more. But the article does talk about a special blessing given by Elder Ballard stating that now is the time to bring them into the church. (5 hours ago) 2

Brenda Heiman Heller: Wonderful, thank you for sharing this. I will use it in sect 109. :) (58 minutes ago)
