We arrived in Nauvoo on Friday, March 22, 2013. What a wonderful place to be with wonderful people. As one Sister put it, we are in Zion where everyone is of one heart and one mind. The Lord blessed us on the trip here. Not a snow flake to be seen from Denver to Nauvoo. However, it started to snow Saturday night and has snowed all day today. It is a winter wonderland - very beautiful, but very cold.
Nauvoo is a Hebrew word meaning "beautiful". Joseph Smith named the town when he and his family moved there in 1839. The town was called Commerce, but Joseph renamed it "the City Beautiful", or Nauvoo.
