The Spirit is speaking in Helen Kimball. She is sent to the mother ship to perform a miracle for the family that will multiply. Her cousin Elizabeth Stoddard believed that her cousin had the answers. One day the older Stoddard sisters visited Helen at the Kimball home, and found Helen and her father Bruce chatting away. Helen had been into a little inquiry, and she thought she knew where to go for help: \"I felt certain God had provided for me. There would be a way of salvation, I felt certain.\" Helen believed that she could find the answer that would settle the Stoddard sisters in their doubts about the value of life. Helen then proceeded to begin her inquiry into the common eternal forum of heavenly life. Helen started by comparing the various views, but soon she discovered that there was only one way for her family and herself to live in heaven. He was the keeper of the Celestial kingdom, and He would be her guide to celestial glory.
In August 1845, Helen, Franklin, Amasa, and John walked to Carthage with the Young Women of the Church. Helen carried a leather bag of Amasa's open-ended undergarments, in preparation for having him sealed to herself and Amasa in the Celestial Order of the Temple. She had been pondering her marriage to Joseph for a long time while she had been sharing her visions of the endowment and her purpose as a prophet of God.
Helen divorced Joseph Smith under the terms of an agreement reached by both parties. Later she accepted Joseph's proposal to be sealed to him again, thinking it was a simple ceremony. In fact, their marriages were a legally binding customs that resulted in them being wed to one another spiritually.
