For Latter-day Saint women, 19th-century female pioneers have been an example of strength and determination. Mary Fielding Smith, faced with a sick ox and with a dependent son, asked her brother to anoint and bless the animal so she could continue marching west. Strong examples of Latter-day Saint women inspire all Saints to be more determined and more resourceful in their march back to God’s presence.

"I latched on to the story of Mary Fielding Smith as a whisper of the promise that both women and men are equally worthy of God’s gifts."
