While studying my scriptures this morning, I started thinking about Emma Smith and how dedicated she was to her husband Joseph. I am sure if I had told Mary when we were dating that I had seen God and Jesus and had been visited by an angel that she would have though I was off my rocker and would have called the whole thing off right there.
Emma went through a lot even though she wasn’t the prophet. She traipsed all over the northeastern United States. She saw her husband imprisoned many times, tortured and killed. She had to experience plural marriage.
She must have had a lot of faith in what her husband was doing. Or, perhaps she just really loved him. Or maybe both.
