Teichert was never timid about bearing her testimony or publicly making it plain how she felt about Mormon pioneers, prophets, or principles. ®In a letter written in 1936 she minced no words as she bore her testimony of the Lord and the priesthood, 'the only one great power in the world today.' She literally begged her young kin not to worry 'about clothes or worldly things but . . . serve the Lord and live with his commandments on the tables of your heart.'® (Welch, John W. and Doris R. Dant. The Book of Mormon Paintings of Minerva Teichert. BYU Studies, 1997, p. 146.)
