Counsel with the Lord in all thy doings, and he will direct thee for good. —Alma 37:37
Every moment of precious prayer can be holy time spent with our Father, in the name of the Son, by the power of the Holy Ghost.—Carole F. McConkie

However, the U.S. Congress, in the famous Compromise of 1850, makes Utah a territory instead of a state, denying the Saints local home rule and leading to a nearly fifty-year struggle for statehood.
1902: The name of the Smith Academy in Rexburg, Idaho, is changed to Ricks Academy in honor of Thomas E. Ricks, founder of Rexburg.
