Emma Smith is my hero.

Tomorrow in seminary we are studying Emma Smith and D&C 25



Here are two videos that show Emma's incredible faith, courage, and love.

What impresses you most about Emma Smith? 

D&C 25 is the only section given specifically to a woman. It also is directed to all women. There is beautiful counsel and promises given to Emma, and to me and you. 

Counsel

  • Murmur not
  • Comfort and console 
  • Do not fear
  • Lay aside the things of the world 
  • Lift up your heart and rejoice 
  • Cleave unto your covenants 
  • Beware of Pride
  • Let thy soul delight in thy husband
  • Keep the commandments

Calling

  • Go with him as he travels and be his scribe
  • Make a selection of sacred hymns to be sung in church

Promises

  • She will receive the Holy Spirit
  • She will gain knowledge
  • She will receive blessings
  • Her husband will support her
  • Her husband’s glory shall come upon him

Is there a particular counsel to Emma that you'd like to improve in your own life? 

Just as Emma used great faith in her challenges, here is a video that shows how faith in Christ helps us through challenges today.
