Do your weeks fly by as fast as ours do?
We had our regular Church from 9:00a.m. to Noon.
Elder Kitley taught a powerful Sunday School lesson on "I Had Seen A Vision." Joseph, age 14,
I just lost an hour's worth of blogging. Too sad to do it all over again right now.
Our great teacher, Elder Kitley, shared this about Joseph's digging for the truth at age 14. When you dig for something you use a shovel...or a spade.
Study - Joseph Smith History 1:11
Ponder - Joseph Smith History 1:12
Alone - Joseph Smith History 1:15
Desire - Joseph Smith History 1:15
Exert - Joseph Smith History 1:16
I also typed Joseph Smith History 1:24-25.
Then I typed Doctrine and Covenants 135:3
And I quoted: Ezra Taft Benson "The appearance of God the Father and his Son Jesus Christ to the boy prophet is the greatest event that has occurred in this world since the resurrection of the Master..." Conference Report, Apr. 1971, 20."
We testified of the Prophet Smith....
And which we will leave this post with this testimony:
"We believe the Prophet Joseph Smith saw God the Father and His Son Jesus Christ as he said he did. And because of this the Gospel Truths have been restored with all the Priesthood Keys so that a husband and wife can be sealed for time and eternity and families can be together forever if we do our part in keeping our covenants and the commandments.
"We have been sent to this earth to be tested. We pray we will pass the test of believing The Savior who said that Joseph Smith is the Prophet of the Restoration."
