COVID-19 info for October 2021: We're still open online! We continue to make minor adjustments to order fulfillment to accommodate local health regulations and resolve occasional supply chain issues. We now accept PayPal, major credit cards and Venmo (via PayPal) for online orders, but we had to permanently discontinue in-store pickups, replacing them with free expedited domestic shipping on most products. Orders are fulfilled on schedule by us or directly through our manufacturing partners, but some delays could be possible as the holiday season begins.

The Substance of Hope by Elspeth Young featured in December 2011 Ensign


Elspeth's painting of Anna the Prophetess, entitled The Substance of Hope (pictured left), is featured on page 33 of the December 2011 Ensign Magazine.  The painting illustrates the following quotation from Patrick Kearon:

"We learn from Anna's experience that we can live faithfully through all weathers if we are consistent in our fasting and prayer and if we do not depart from the temple in our hearts. If we haven't yet had the opportunity to travel to a temple and receive its blessings, we can still enjoy the blessings that flow into our lives when we worthily hold a temple recommend. Prophets have repeatedly invited us to hold a temple recommend even if our circumstances do not allow us to attend the temple. We can lift ourselves from dark moments and into the light of gratitude through our temple worship and through testifying of Jesus to all who look for peace and hope."
