In this issue, Chad Orton tells what life was like for women and children who were left behind as their husbands and fathers served missions, 1839 to 1920. John Hilton and Joshua Barringer share their research on how general conference speakers used Gethsemane and follow themes that changed over time. Warren Aston uses clues from scripture, archaeology, and research on the ground to propose the route that Lehi’s family took from Jerusalem to Arabia. Ugo Perego reports his genetic testing to show that the story of Josephine Lyon being Joseph Smith’s daughter is likely incorrect. Duane Boyce looks carefully at Alma 60 to test whether Captain Moroni was mistaken about his call to governors to repent and sees that the question involves more people than just Pahoran. This issue also includes three essays, four poems, three book reviews, and three book notices. Beautiful artwork and poetry, She Believed, by Sarah Richards Samuelson, graces the cover.
