Recently, I was asked by my local church to do drawings for their upcoming youth trek. They are highlighting certain pioneers who traveled the Mormon Trail about a 150 years ago. I was hesitant because I have plenty on my plate as is, but as I drew these people I came to appreciate their sacrifice and fortitude. Many of my ancestors walked that trail and this experience has inspired me to research their stories.
