“We have been kicked out of the frying-pan into the fire, out of the fire into the middle of the floor, and here we are and here we will stay. God has shown me that this is the spot to locate His people, and here is where they will prosper. . . . I have the grit in me and will do my duty anyhow.” Brigham Young

- What parallels do we see in their pioneering lives and ours?
- How did their early foundational choices bring them closer to Christ, and set the course for others to do likewise?
