You would have 16 great great grandparents, 32 great great great grandparents, and 2048 9th great grandparents. Thats one heck of a lot of grandfathers to be watching over their posterity, because where does it end? Apparently after you go back so many generations, the amount of grandparents gets fewer until it ends up 2, Adam and Eve. That's what the super genealogists are discovering. One more testimony that the Bible is true.

I believed all the doctrine as a child and thought I could make it through on belief alone without ever reading and studying myself. My mother read to me a lot, but I put very little effort into growing a testimony. My rude awakening came after I left home and realized there was more to it than that. First my father died, leaving me with few reserves. Second I had to learn the hard way that it took faith to live the principles, and in order to grow faith you had to read and then do what you believed. Read, believe, do. I have never doubted any of the doctrine, but with bipolar sometimes the wires get a little crossed and you don't quite know up from down.

Life is a never ceasing mystery puzzle, sometimes piecing together at the least opportune times, but always coming together in the end. There is reason for everything, rather, reason can be found and used in everything. All things can work toward good if we allow them to.

I think I'll try to find out which companies my folks were in too. There's tons from mine and hubby's side. I wonder if our folks knew each other. XXX if you want names
