At Education Week I usually take classes on genealogy, church history and literature. The picture shows a class by William Hartley. He taught two hours each day on a variety of topics concerning Church History. Susan Easton Black taught a class on church history. I also took a continuing legal education class, since it was taught by my brother, Craig Smith. (He is the best water attorney in Utah.) I almost think my favorite class this year, actually two classes each day taught by the same person, Ron L. Andersen. He has written a book called, A. Lincoln God’s Humble Servant.
Every year Bob and I go to Brigham Young University’s Education Week. We enjoy the opportunity to take classes on a variety of subjects. I really wanted to go this year, since it would be the one year anniversary of my big health scare. (Yes it all happened one year ago while we were at Education Week.) I didn’t want Education Week to have that memory hanging over it. So Bob and I went. I had to text my children every morning to let them know I was okay. Education Week started in 1922, so this year was the 89th year of this unique continuous education program for adults. There were over 30,000 adults in attendance. The theme this year was, “That All May Be Edified.” D & C 88:122.
