"As Sisters in Zion," Debbie J. Christensen

Category: Books
Rank: 4

It took one missionary meeting in 1848 for Emily Hill to know that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was true. It was four years before she was baptized against her family's will. Another four years to save money to join the saints in Utah. Six weeks on the Thornton ship and five grueling months in the Willie Handcart Company in 1856 to arrive in the Salt Lake Valley.

And it took more than 130 years for a promise a priesthood blessing Emily Hill received to be fulfilled.

In the recently-released book, "As Sisters in Zion: The Story Behind the Song," author Debbie J. Christensen delves deep into the lives of Emily and Julia Hill, two sisters from southern England, and the widow Martha Campkin and her five children in the 1850s.

What does it mean to live a life of love? Our capacity to give and receive love is a hallmark of discipleship, and evidence of our deepest desires and our understanding of God's plan for us.

When we are filled with love, we can make a profound difference in our own lives, in our homes and circles of influence, and in the world in which we live. Love makes it possible for us to do what we came to do.
