Scripture

“Dear and well-beloved brother, Brigham Young, verily thus saith the Lord unto you: your offering is acceptable to me. I have seen your labor and toil in journeyings for my name. I therefore command you to send my word abroad, and take special care of your family henceforth.” —Doctrine & Covenants 126

 

Quote

“As we look at Brigham Young and reflect upon the inspiration and direction that came to that most unusual man, we recall how he was able to fill the tragic void caused by the death of the Prophet Joseph Smith, how he stepped in and was able under inspiration and revelation to guide and direct the closing of Nauvoo and the planning of the trip west.” David B. Haight
