road trip day 9




Today may have ended with 12 hours of driving from Kirtland, Ohio to Keokuk, IA, but it began with a spirit-filled tour of the John Johnson farm in Hiram, Ohio. I felt close to Joseph as I walked through the house where he once lived and where important things were revealed. And when we stood on the front porch where preaching happened I could imagine him there talking to the people, including men that probably were involved in tarring and feathering him. It was a great way to start the day.

I'm loving seeing these pictures! They remind me of my semester I did in Nauvoo---and I feel a little homesick for it:) And we used to go to Keokuk frequently since it was the closest store to Nauvoo where we could actually shop.

I wish all my days started with that kind of imagery and inspiration.

And...I actually LOVED visiting Keokuk, Iowa. Enjoy!

Wow! I went there once almost 15 years ago! I remember feeling that sweet feeling in those sacred places. So cool!
