This is the lesson we will be discussing next Sunday in Gospel Doctrine Class.  It is so important to review that I want to include all the study on my blog.  Thanks for doing the research Brother Bill Beardall.

I’ll file it under “canopy” on my personal covered wagon

CANOPY: Our protection:   Our private values & personal Beliefs.  The degree to which we honor our covenants may be the degree to which we will be protected from evil.  When we stumble in life, check the canopy and repair the leaks.

CANOPY RINGS (BOWS)Goals, Our lofty Goals that reach heaven-ward.  Just like  bows that expand the space inside the wagon, so do goals expand our capability and accomplishment.

Doctrine & Covenants/Church History
Lesson 31
“Sealed … for Time and for All Eternity”

Lesson Highlights

Eternal marriage is essential in Heavenly Father’s plan.

  • Youth should prepare now for eternal marriage.
  • After a husband and wife are sealed in the temple, they must abide in the covenant to receive the promised blessings.

A study of this lesson will help us understand that eternal marriage is an essential part of Heavenly Father’s plan, to help youth prepare for eternal marriage, and to encourage married couples to abide in the marriage covenant.

Scripture references for study:  D&C 131:1–4132:4–33
Lesson 31 Handout (PDF format)
Sections 129, 130 & 131 are not revelations from God. They were not included in the original Doctrine and Covenants, but were added later. These sections are instructions given to the people by Joseph Smith. These sections give you a glimpse into what Joseph Smith knew and who he actually was, and I would say, “WOW”.

No Bull


For Father’s Day my husband, finally after all these years, found the perfect fiberglass replica of a bull.  We picked it up tonight, after a little stress, because he couldn’t find his trailer to haul it on.  People were actually pointing and laughing at us on our way home.  I told my hubby he had better learn to take it because everyone in town would be doing the same, and unless he wanted his bull associated with negative stigma, he’d better laugh along.

Yes, the wheel is getting a little squeaky over this.   Let’s take a closer look at the hub:  It is very strong, holding the spokes firmly in place.  But it looks like it would be a little squeaky around the axle area, so to  grease it up good might be in order.


AXLE GREASE: Love…Must be plenty of axle grease for the wheels to turn and the axle to slide in smoothly. If not the wheels will squeak, wear, and the wagon will break down.

The family really should stop teasing dear old dad about his bull, and dear old dad should look for the humor in the teasing.  Me?  I’m genuinely happy about it and supportive.  Even helped him design a spot for it out in the pasture.

Happy Father’s Day.  This video reminds me of the kind of father and husband you are to us.  Oh so generous, and hey, you have a good eye.  😉

It also reminds me of my father.  Happy Father’s Day Dad.

1 Samuel 17:34-37

34 And David said unto Saul,

Thy servant kept his father’s sheep,

and there came a lion, and a bear,

and took a lamb out of the flock:


35 And I went out after him,
and smote him,
and delivered it out of his mouth:
and when he arose against me,
I caught him by his beard,
and smote him, and slew him.

36 Thy servant slew both the lion and the bear:
and this ____(fill in the blank)_____ shall be as one of them,
seeing he hath defied the armies of the living God.

37 David said moreover,
The Lord that adelivered me out of the paw of the lion,
and out of the paw of the bear,
he will bdeliver me out of the hand of this _______.
And Saul said unto David,
Go, and the Lord be with thee.
My daddy’s name was David.
He died when I was 18.
See the drop of blood?
Can you see Old Chief Mountain?
The lion and the bear?
The pine trees represent my friends and relationships.
I am protective of my little pine trees,
and keep them safely on the other side of the line.
My God is not somewhere in the sky,
He is down in the trenches with me.
I have lived in the fire to rescue a friend.
Chief Mountain
