Plural Life

missionary-lunch-21                After reading the article on plural marriage and the family experience that was expressed, I was reminded how blessed I am in being able to be a part of a large and wonderful family.  I would like to take the opportunity to express the fullness of my heart in this.

                I came from a family of five children.  But it wasn’t until I was married and found myself in the midst of one of the largest families in the Work, that I felt like I had died and gone to heaven!  There are not words created that can articulate the blessings I have had during my life within this family.  All of our family get-togethers have been so full and wonderful. I don’t know how I ever survived before!

                I have found myself called “Mother” by many.  Those from within our family and those that come from our community, I have hundreds of “family” members whom I love very much!!  This week I will have two Thanksgiving dinners. 

Try to picture 25-30 young men gathered into my home for one of the many lunches that our people willingly serve to these faithful young men.  These young men contribute to the projects and the needs of our community and so a number of us take our turns providing them with a well-earned meal.  For me this gathering happens once a month.  And fills my heart beyond any containment of emotion, so my turn to serve them has come up this week and I am planning a full Thanksgiving Dinner for them.  And then on Friday I will be doing another Thanksgiving Dinner just for my immediate family of 20-27 people, if they all come.  Some can and some can’t, but it is always a full day for us.

                My life is very full now and has been for the 47 years since coming into this Work.  I do not want to be anywhere else and wouldn’t trade places with anyone outside this Work for any price.  Plural Marriage is a large part of my life.  The lord’s blessings to me are so many that it is absolutely impossible for me to count them all. ~A Plural Wife~
