Origin

This Mormon Message reframes a portion of Joseph Smith's own quest for truth from the point of view of a young woman in our modern world.  Hearing Joseph's words spoken from her mouth and in a world more familiar to me really helps me remember to liken scriptures to myself.




Sometimes we struggle in life trying to find answers to questions,big and small, that trouble us.  We often swirl around in a tornado of confusion and are so focused on the chaos we often forget to take quiet time out to petition the source of all truth, our Heavenly Father.  Asking in faith, we can gain knowledge that will bless our lives and the lives of others.

"If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him." (James 1:5)  This scripture inspired Joseph Smith to ask a very important question to his Heavenly Father--a question whose answer changed the course of history.  To read more about his experience, click here.
