Line of Authority


Need a gift idea for you husband, father, brother etc... for Father's Day?? 

I posted this idea right when I started my blog when pretty much the only person reading it was my mom so I thought I'd post it again- this time with pictures! (I erased the earlier ones if you didn't notice)

For Christmas last year I gave my husband, dad, father in law and brothers a framed copy of their Priesthood Line of Authority. If you are not LDS, this may not make much sense to you but basically a document that shows who ordained an individual and who in turn ordained them and so on back to the Lord. Read more about it here. They all LOVED it, something so personal and unique. I became fascinated with them as I was putting them all together. Something very special for them to have record of!

If you are interested here is who you email: lineofauthority@ldschurch.org  -Send them your name/ persons name you are requesting and your address. If you are requesting your dads for example, they will have to mail it to his house- but they can address it to your mom or someone else in the home to keep it a secret!!

Once I got the document in the mail I re-typed it, printed it on card stock, threw a little ribbon (manly ribbon) on and placed it in a frame.

I think this with a tie would be a cute gift for Fathers Day!


Here is an example

  2. This is fabulous!! My husband was just talking about how disappointed he was that he doesn't know his line of authority. I can't wait to see the look on his face!

  4. Found you through the Somewhat Simple Father's Day link up. I love it when I find ideas like this that I've never seen or thought of before! Reminds me of how a friend of mine ordered her grandparents' patriarchal blessings and gave them to her parents (their children obviously) for a gift. So special. Thanks for sharing!

  8. This is a great idea! Would you mind emailing me your template to ryankaren.duvall@gmail.com? My husband has been wanting to know his too, and I requested it. Your template is simple and basic, just as it should be and I love it!
