Doctrine and Covenants 89:10-11: And again, verily I say unto you, all wholesome herbs
God hath ordained for the constitution, nature, and use of man—Every herb in the season thereof, and every fruit in the season thereof; all these to be used with prudence
The first thing the advance pioneer teams did when they arrived in the Great Salt Lake Valley was to break ground and plant crops. The survival of pioneers depended on it. As you walk this week, through your neighborhood and gardens, reflect on the bounty we are given, all the fruit that is coming into season. Be grateful to those who have gone before us, planting the trees that are swelling with fruit, that we, through the grace of God, our predecessors’ sacrifice, and our own labor, may be able to eat.
Our Ward was able to finish this 1,415 mile walk together in 5 weeks! This was much faster than I had anticipated. I loved the support that everyone in our ward showed me and the Primary children as we did this project together.
Would something like this work where you live? What should we do now that we have reached our goal to continue to encourage walking to church?
