Stake History

Birthplace of Church Primary Program

Aurelia Spencer Rogers gave birth to 12 children; only seven survived infancy. While living in Farmington, Utah, in 1878, she noticed many of the neighborhood boys were running freely throughout the town during the day and night. Because of the demanding schedule of parents and older children — both on the farm and running a household — the young boys were often left with little supervision.

Concerned the boys were becoming too mischievous and not receiving enough direction, Sister Rogers decided she would gather with the boys to teach them basic principles and values. Taking her concerns to Sister Eliza R. Snow, then-Relief Society general president, Sister Rogers shared her idea in a letter.

Sister Snow responded in a letter: “The spirit and contents of your letter please me. I feel assured that the inspiration of heaven is directing you and that a great and very important movement is being inaugurated for the future of Zion. President John Taylor fully approbates it”. [1]
