Upcoming Presentation in Idaho Falls!
The Joseph Smith Foundation will be offering a free presentation at the Kimber Academy in Idaho Falls. All are invited! Feel welcome to let any friends or family know. The presentation will be given by Jayson Kunzler.
Come explore fascinating parallels between principles and events in the Book of Mormon and our day. As Mormon and latter-day prophets have testified, the Book of Mormon was inspired and each word carefully chosen to be used by us to discern and give the solutions for the subtle deceptions of these last days.

“The life and labors of President Joseph Fielding Smith were characterized by three things:
“1. His love of the Lord and the absolute, unswerving fidelity with which he sought to signify that love by keeping his commandments and doing ever those things which would please the Lord.
“2. His loyalty to the Prophet Joseph Smith and the everlasting truths restored through him; to his grandfather, the Patriarch Hyrum Smith, … [who] met a martyr’s death; and to his father, President Joseph F. Smith, whose name is enshrined forever in the celestial city as one who endured valiantly in the cause of him whose blood was shed that we might live.
“3. His own gospel scholarship and spiritual insight; his own unwearying diligence as a preacher of righteousness; and his own course of feeding the hungry, clothing the naked, visiting the widow and the fatherless, and manifesting pure religion by precept as well as by example.” (Bruce R. McConkie, “Joseph Fielding Smith: Apostle, Prophet, Father in Israel,” Ensign, Aug. 1972, 28.)
