    This is the second time I have listened to these episodes about Emma. What an amazing woman! Now I understand better the history of the RLDS/Community of Christ, as I grew up with members of the RLDS in Iowa. How I wish that the LDS had kept the gift of priesthood that Joseph bestowed on Emma. Lindsay, sending lots of light and love your way from this ELCA Lutheran Pastor in SE Nebraska. Blessings on your ministry as a “Public Historian.” And thank you, John Hamer!

    I’m struggling with the fact that Emma denied that Joseph practiced polygamy when she was interviewed by Joseph III just before she died. Was this intentionally left out of these episodes? Thank you

    At minute 30 it states that the Endowment was introduced a month after several early Mormons become Freemasons and implies that that may be the origin of the Endowment. However, my great-grandmother had a letter stating that the Endowment was given in Kirtland, OH before Nauvoo, IL, which also jives with what my mother, a history teacher, told me as a child that Joseph was sent to the Masons to see what similarities and differences they had with what was already revealed to him in the Kirtland Temple. (Details of this letter were published by Jeffrey M. Bradshaw. My father gave some biographical details of his grandmother. http://www.mormoninterpreter.com/how-thankful-we-should-be-to-know-the-truth-zebedee-coltrins-witness-of-the-heavenly-origins-of-temple-ordinances/)

    I’m way after the fact, but just starting to listen to this marvelous series. I wanted to point out that I think Emma wasn’t looked to as a successor simply because she wasn’t related by blood. Of course, if Joseph had an oldest daughter (he did, right? But she was adopted), I doubt she would have been considered, because she is a woman and doesn’t have the priesthood, etc. But in Emma’s case, I think there’s the added complication that she’s not actually related to him by blood (and Joseph claimed to be a direct descendant of some important people…). I’m sure it wasn’t even a consideration at the time.

One other thing I would like to talk about is that there are many games available and which are designed particularly for preschool age small children. They involve pattern identification, colors, pets, and styles. These normally focus on familiarization as an alternative to memorization. This helps to keep children and kids engaged without sensing like they are studying. Thanks
