As a result, history is not easily understood in regards to exactly how women were treated in the Church.

I was always told but never taught how to do that or what it even means. Thus, I started my own research. As I dove into what scripture was telling me, I asked the Holy Spirit…

The author of our lesson points out that our temptations are a part of life from the time we first trade our favorite pacifier in for those temper tantrums that insure everything is going to be done on our terms.
