Today’s story is to continue my commemoration of the restoration of the priesthood power for this month of May. I love this story because it shows the power of promises given in priesthood blessings. In this story we see young Elizabeth Beardall Mower living in England with her family and searching for religious truth. They find Latter-day Saint missionaries and start to think they have found the truth. Then Elizabeth gets sick with scarlet fever. The young missionaries give her a priesthood blessing to heal her. All the promises that the missionaries give to her in the blessings, including healing, are fulfilled, including the blessing that she will grow up and become a mother in Zion.
