Grandpa “Bud” Bruce worked at Certainteed, a fiberglass factory, for over 27 years. One of his positions required him to work under sheets of extremely hot material. Other men had died when the sheets had fallen on them. One day, a sheet fell and the edge fell just in front of his steel toed boots and fell away from him. He testified that the blessing he received during his initiatory ordinance, (specifically that his garments would be a shield and a protection), protected him in this and other job related accidents. This helps me to trust that the lord will keep his promises, and as long as we stay faithful he will help protect us and keep us safe.

Isaac Allred migrated with his wife, Mary Calvert, and nine children from Tennessee to Monroe, Missouri around 1830. He and his family were some of the first converts in Missouri. They were baptized in September 1832 and helped start the Salt River Branch. He was close friends with early leaders of the church. In Missouri, they had 3 more children and even named their last child Sidney Rigdon Allred. They were persecuted and chased by mobs from Monroe to Far West and later settled in Nauvoo before they crossed the plains with the Allen Taylor Company and settled in Utah. My favorite account about Isaac that I found stated that he was a beautiful violinist and loved to play to gladden the hearts of the saints. He was close friends with the Prophet Joseph Smith and he would often play for him in his home in Nauvoo. I also found funny accounts of him trying to outwit and outride the mobs that followed him. I think it takes great trust in the Lord to be able to be joyful during times of trial and persecution! I want to be more like Isaac and enjoy my blessings, even when life can be hard!

I am the great great-granddaughter of Charles C. Rich. He served as an apostle under Brigham Young after the Church settled in Utah Territory. During the Missouri period he was a leader in Caldwell County and fought in the Battle of Crooked River where he led one of three columns of defenders against the Missouri militia. In Nauvoo he served on the Nauvoo High Council and as a Brigadier-General in the Nauvoo Legion. Once the Saints had settled in Utah, he was asked by Brigham Young to lead a company of Saints to California where they opened San Bernardino for settlement in 1850. Eventually, in 1863 he was called back to Utah by President Young and then charged with leading the settlement of the Bear Lake Valley on the border of Utah and Idaho. You would think that he had quite enough to do; however, during that same time he also accepted a calling as President of the British Mission.
What has always inspired me was his willingness to do whatsoever the Lord asked of him. Whether serving in battle, settling the wilderness from Missouri to Illinois to Utah and Idaho to the Pacific Ocean, or taking the Gospel to other lands he exemplified, “I’ll go where you want me to go dear Lord.” When I think of his example I hope and pray that I can do just a portion of what he did as I strive to serve the Lord.
