Yesterday, while the virus infected my very being I decided to skip the makeup videos on You Tube and I went to the Mormon Messages channel.
And this is what I came upon. The church has uploaded the entire Joseph Smith video. For those of you unfamiliar with my faith Joseph Smith was our first prophet. I must admit I have always had a hard time with this story… but in the past year I have really realized that Joseph Smith recieved revelation, and like most of us it took a while for it to really sink it. He took a while to be prepared.
If you’ve ever had questions about our church, this video answers so many of them.
- Families will be together forever.
- How the LDS church has the priesthood
- How Joseph Smith learned about our church
It’s a longy, but the first 10 minutes or so gives you a good idea of the beginnings of our church. The rest of it reminds me how important trials can be in our lives, and in the lives of those around us. I was really happy that I could watch it all on my phone as I blew my nose and cried a little.
I love Joseph Smith, I have a strong testimony of who he was on earth and who is now in Heaven. I am thankful for what he and his family endured so that I could have my faith today.
