Patriarchal Blessings
Patriarchal blessings are given to worthy members of the Church by ordained patriarchs. Patriarchal blessings include a declaration of a person's lineage in the house of Israel and contain personal counsel from the Lord. As a person studies his or her patriarchal blessing and follows the counsel it contains, it will provide guidance, comfort, and protection.

  2. The Deseret Alphabet was designed and developed at the University of Deseret - which became "The University of Utah".

    Both BYU and The University of Utah were founded by Mr. Young, but the University of Utah proceeds BYU by 25 years.
