John D Lee sitting on his coffin before executionToday we’re publishing a new page on the blog that you can find over on the right sidebar. Woo-hoo!

LDS Manual, The LifMormon Decisions 10e and Teachings of Jesus and His Apostles (1979), pp 9-31; “There was in Palestine a couple, Joseph and Mary. They lived in Nazareth.
