"Sister Leonora"

Everything I read about the women of Nauvoo leaves me in awe. Sister Leonora Cannon Taylor came to Canada because of a dream she had. She met and married John Taylor and then they joined the church together in 1836. One of the remarkable things about her was her willingness to support the work of the Lord. She lived in a log cabin that had holes so big skunks could run in and out of the cabin at will (let alone mice). She got really sick, but she kept on plugging. She lost children, but she didn't lose her faith.

That is a beautiful picture. Most pictures of women back in the olden days are awful. Thanks for sharing.
