Gratitude- the Prophet Joseph Smith

Statue of Joseph and his brother Hyrum at Carthage Jail

The young, uneducated, farm boy Joseph Smith was told by the angel Moroni that his “…name should be had for good and evil among all nations, kindreds, and tongues, or that it should be both good and evil spoken of among all people.” Indeed that proclamation has proven to be true. Today I express my gratitude for many witnesses from the Spirit that have taught me of the divine calling of Joseph Smith as a prophet of God. Those witnesses were renewed in my soul today as I listened to some beautiful music during our church service. As part of the piano/organ duet, there were a few measures played from the hymn, “Praise to the Man.” Those notes touched my heart and the Spirit witnessed to me again of the divinity of the calling of the prophet Joseph Smith, the prophet of the Restoration. I am grateful.
