JOHN TAYLOR’S MIRACLE: “Streams of fire as thick as my arm passed by me as these men fired, and, unarmed as we were it looked like certain death. As I reached the window, I was struck by a bullet from the door… I lost entirely and instantaneously all power of action or locomotion. I fell on to the window-sill, and cried out, “I am shot!” Fearing that his watch and wallet would be stolen from the nearby hotel room where he was recovering, he sent them back to Nauvoo with Willard Richards. “Upon examination, my family was shocked to find that my watch had been struck with a bullet. The fragments of the glass were found literally ground to powder. It then occurred to me that the watch had saved my life.”
36” metal chain – watch measures 2” diameter & watch face is 1.5” diameter –

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
