    i don't know though. We all have a chance to learn much, expound scriptures and exhort the saints. We have that opportunity when we give a talk, visit other families, talk to friends, lead a class etc. We are all asked to write much, in writing journals and family history, our whole life story, and that of ancestors; social media now also enables to contact many people every day.

    I select favorite hymns all the time and play them too. The hymn book is much longer today and we are always adding to our services other choral music from all over the world from every age and many nations. Our opportunities are at least as good as those of Emma Smith. Many wives are ordained by their husbands and many husbands support their wives in the Church. We are all elected (chosen) by God and all may gain a crown of righteousness.

    Emma Smith was the greatest woman of faith, during the lifetime of the prophet Joseph Smith. Consider her calling, compared to more modern women of faith today:

    "[T]hou shalt be ordained under [Joseph's] hand to expound scriptures, and to exhort the church, according as it shall be given thee by my Spirit. For he shall lay his hands upon thee, and thou shalt receive the Holy Ghost, and thy time shall be given to writing, and to learning much. And thou needest not fear, for thy husband shall support thee in the church . ... And it shall be given thee, also, to make a selection of sacred hymns, as it shall be given thee, which is pleasing unto me, to be had in my church. ... Keep my commandments continually, and a crown of righteousness thou shalt receive." (See D&C 25.)

    Sarah Marinda Bates Pratt was the greatest inspiration of all. Her courage far exceeded all the others combined.
