when I was 12 I received a Patriarchal Blessing. I just received a copy of it from an anonymous person (I think it was my sister because she is mad that I am no longer active or interested in the religion at all). I read it out of curiosity and it was actually very humorous. It told me all these things I was suppose to accomplish as I grew older and everything is exactly what the church uses in teaching their doctrines such as go on a mission, marry in the Temple, have lots of children, do church callings, and do geneology work (all which are indoctrined in your lessons each week). I thought a Patriarchal Blessing was suppose to be a personalized message from God just for you and yet it seemed rather generic and stereotypical and not personal at all. If you are still LDS and very active have you had yours done and what are your feelings about it?

I didn't realize that genealogy was part of the religion. I think it would be neat to read the weekly lessons you are talking about.
