One of the early hardships faced by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, "the Mormons", started with the persecution that forced them to move several times. At the height of this, many members were murdered, tarred and feathered, raped, property stolen, properties and holy buildings burned to the ground, etc. Many of these things happened not just because of their religious belief but their belief in self sufficiency, anti-slavery, organized farming practices, education, and law enforcement.

Probably some of their most significant early hardships are also witnessed as they crossed the great plains of Central America during bitter winter months in order to escape the death and persecution that had constantly hounded them. Many had to push their carts by hand with their young families during this trying time. Many froze to death crossing rivers, lost limbs, faced disease and death among their family members, all in simply trying to fulfil their right to worship God according to the dictates of their own consciences. These were some of the terrible trials and hardships that plagued the early Mormon settlers, and difficulties that followed in trying to settle in the mountains of Utah, with their only resource beings prayer and their personal wits.
