Already To Harvest

1 NOW behold, a marvelous work is about to come forth among the children of men.
2 Therefore, O ye that embark in the service of God, see that ye serve him with all your heart, might, mind and strength, that ye may stand blameless before God at the last day.
3 Therefore, if ye have desires to serve God ye are called to the work;
4 For behold the field is white already to harvest; and lo, he that thrusteth in his sickle with his might, the same layeth up in store that he perisheth not, but bringeth salvation to his soul;
5 And faith, hope, charity and love, with an eye single to the glory of God, qualify him for the work.
6 Remember faith, virtue, knowledge, temperance, patience, brotherly kindness, godliness, charity, humility, diligence.
7 Ask, and ye shall receive; knock, and it shall be opened unto you. Amen.
(Doctrine and Covenants | Section 4:1 - 7)

Rescue Riders

This is a painting of the men who went out in search of the Willie and Martin Handcart companies. They were the first sign of rescue to the wearied travelers. The urgency of the situation is portrayed in the speed of the horses and expressions of the riders. Joseph A. Young is portrayed as the rider on the far left.

I had the opportunity to stand on the snowy ground where this event took place. It was during a re-enactment of the rescue. As I saw the wearied people struggle through the snow for merely minutes, I visualized what it must have been like for the faithful pioneers. I wanted to run to help them. This painting is a representation of that feeling.

Seek And Ye Shall Find

All three background paintings involve people asking and seeking for heavenly assistance in some way. The children in the front are learning from the images and examples around them. They are learning to which source they can seek to find what they need the most.
