Lesson 22: Eternal Perspective- This lesson really gets the Young Women thinking about Eternal Life and how to put into prospect the blessings of the teachings of Eternal Marriage and Eternal Life. There were many stories that were shared and questions asked about how the Eternal Prospective plays in each of their decisions and how they deal with each situation. This story really stood out to me.
In March of 1832, the Prophet Joseph Smith was dragged from his home in the middle of the night by an angry mob. He was beaten, choked, and tarred and feathered by his assailants. They then left him on the cold ground.
After a while, he was able to get up and make his way back to the house. His friends spent the rest of the night scraping the tar off him.
The next day was Sunday. The Prophet dressed and went to the Sabbath meeting, where he preached a sermon to the congregation. Among the people in the meeting were some of the mobbers of the night before. In the afternoon of that day, three people were baptized. (See History of the Church, 1:261–64.)
I love how this story shows that no matter what happened the Prophet Joseph Smith always stood firm and tall for those things he knew were true!
