We are watching this first dvd as we have now returned from touring with him and his beautiful redheaded wife and 92 other people for 10 days whom we love. Starting in Sharon Vermont and ending in Carthage Illinois. The trip was sacred. spiritual and unforgettable. We had no idea it was going to be as fantastic as it was. Fun for less tours is where to sign up for and I wouldn't wait. It's called the Ultimate church history tour. And that it was!
The tour was 10 days , 3 of those days traveling by air the rest by 2 buses.
we would get up at 6:00 a.m. and drop into our beds around 10-11:00 p.m.
no one complained, it was too wonderful.
we were taught on the buses each day as we traveled from place to place.
we had morning devotionals.
I must tell you some bus driver stories , but that will be in the first days of our trip.
There were always tears.
And wonderful new people from all over the united states to meet.
2 young men, just new off their missions by a week were with us too, that was great!
I'll be back with more...right now, getting ready for the HOLIDAY Acorn antique show this weekend!

Joseph and Emma's Mansion house
Joseph smith jr. began construction 1841
It was used to entertain guests giving visitors free room and board.
It became to expensive and turned it into a hotel.
After Joseph and Hyrums death they were viewed here approx. 10,000 people.
Emma and her children lived here until 1869.
In 1918 Frederick A. Smoth, Josephs grandson deeded the Mansion to the RLDS church.
It remains in their ownership along with the cemetary.
