This kind and meaningful painting shows two women gathering sheaves of wheat in a light-dappled field. If you look closely, you see four children working and playing alongside them. A sweet baby sits on the ground near the cart, bonneted against the sunlight coming through the clouds. The toddler grasping the cart handles looks as ready for play as for serious work, while the two older children bundle and carry beside the women. These children are being taught by parents and other adults the importance of President David O. McKay’s admonition: “Learn to like your work. Learn to say – This is my work, my glory, not my doom.

OUR COMMITMENT TO BE IN HARMONY WITH THE REVEALED NAME OF THE CHURCH:
President Russell M. Nelson of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints released the following statement regarding the name of the Church.
"The Lord has impressed upon my mind the importance of the name He has revealed for His Church, even The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. We have work before us to bring ourselves in harmony with His will."
The Nauvoo Gallery has been working to put our website and our gallery store in Nauvoo, Illinois in harmony with this important revelation. It’s been customary for websites like ours to use terms like LDS Art, LDS Temple Art, LDS pictures or Mormon Art when describing our products for Google and other search engines. Our intention has been to help people find what has been termed as LDS products & LDS Gifts. It took many many months to build and add products to this website using those relevant and popular search terms - please bear with us as we still find each instance where we can better be in harmony with President Nelson’s message. Thank you for your patience and your kindness during this process
