Title Strength in Unity
Description she sent John and his two brothers on ahead, earning and saving money to bring the rest of her family at a later time. Isabella Grahan Blain was known in Spring City as the "Yeast Lady," who willingly provided anyone in town with yeast to make their bread. The story is told that Brigham Young once came to her and asked for some flour. Her supply was nearly gone, but she gave it to him, and he then promised her that she would never want for food. She later said that this promise proved to be true. She was a kind and courageous woman, from whom the many Blains of Spring City descended.5 I often think of the trials and the hardships under which my ancestors lived, in Spring City, Ephraim, Manti and other places in Utah, in those early days of the building up on the church and the west. I wonder if we may also have to someday sit at our window with a gun, as Grandpa Blain and many others of his time did, protecting our families from those who choose to terrorize and perhaps destroy us, for whatever reason. If this becomes necessary, I would hope that we will be able to remember the story of Jlder Hyde, choosing to heed the counsel of our leaders, and finding strength in the unity which they proclaim.
