During this lesson I had the students search through D&C 136:18-42 to find words of comfort that would help the pioneers journey across the plains. I gave each student a paper Quilt block and then they took turns sharing the scripture that they found and why that scripture would bring comfort to the pioneers. As they took turns I took their quilt block and placed it on the board to form a quilt for the journey.
