Returning to Church

Hello Dear Reader,
Up to the time of my birth Grandpa (Wes) and Grandma (Mary) Carter were only occasional church goers. Mary talked to the bishop and decided she wanted to be more actively involved again. On one occasion Wes went hunting on Sunday and when he returned home Mary and the children were ready to go to Sacrament Meeting.

He complained about her leaving him alone but she replied (in Wes’s words, “firmly but frankly”), “If you want to spend Sunday evening with me and the children you’re going to have to go with us.” He reluctantly put on his suit but said if they (the leaders) ever called on him to pray or talk he would never go back. They didn’t bother him for a long time.

Sometimes it just takes a strong woman to get a man going. Look what he did with the rest of his religious life!
