Brigham and Mary Ann

If I haven't made it clear before, I love Mary Ann Young! What a faithful devoted daughter of God she was and continues to be. Mary Ann raised Brigham's children from his first marriage after his wife had died. She joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints with full intentions of keeping her covenants. She married Brigham and followed him where ever he was called to go. When he served missions, she stayed at home in a swampy half built cabin, making trips across the Mississippi in freezing temperatures to obtain food for her children. She planted gardens, built things and supported Brigham in all that he did. She was an amazing woman.

I'm trying to determine if that beard is real or not. They do look like a cool couple to represent President and Sister Young. We can tell you really love Mary Ann. Maybe someday you'll find you are related to her as well!
