Road Trippin' Day 10

On July 12th,  we celebrated our 15-year wedding anniversary by visiting the historic church history sites in Kirtland Ohio.
Historic Kirtland, a small settlement in northern Ohio was where members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints gathered shortly after the Church was founded. Between 1831 and 1838, Joseph Smith and early members of the Church established Church headquarters in Kirtland and built a temple.
Our first stop of the day was the Issac Morley farm. Then we went to the Newel K. Whitney Store, Newel K. and Elizabeth Ann Whitney Home, Kirtland sawmill and The Kirtland Ashery.
We toured the Kirtland temple which is now owned by the community of Christ. It was a beautiful old building and it was inspiring to think about the sacrifices that the early saints must have made to build it.

Our last stop of the day was the John Johnson home. This was another one of our favorite stops on the trip. We all felt a strong spirit of truth and revereverence while we toured that sacred property. Our guide was a wonderful sister from Snowflake AZ! I wish I would have written down her name. She shared her testimony with us and the spirit bore witness to our hearts that she spoke truth. I'm so glad we drove the extra distance to visit the John Johnson home. 

We continued our drive west and stopped in Dayton Ohio for the night.
