The Coat

The following video is a recreation of an event in the life of Heber J. Grant.  Heber’s own family was quite poor.  His father died when he was nine days old and he was raised primarily by his widowed mother.  Heber’s mother worked hard to sustain her family but they did not have an abundance.  Heber often went to bed early during cold months because fuel was scarce to warm their home, but his bed was warm.

Heber’s mother sewed for income and made the coat from scraps of leftover fabric.  The video is a reminder that one of Jesus’ main messages was to think of others.
