What's a Mormon???

Hi! I'm Ally Kendrick, I love to write, learn new things, spend time with my family, go to the beach, eat ice cream, read, and be silly. And I'm a Mormon.


4. Joseph Smith

Joseph Smith was the first prophet of the church. At the age of 14 in 1820, he went into the woods to pray and asked to know what church to join. Then God and Jesus Christ appeared to him and told him not to join any church. A few years later an angel appeared to him 4 times, instructing him on where to find the record of the people who lived in America hundreds of years ago and how they came here. This record was written on golden plates. After 4 years, Joseph Smith was allowed to translate them. When the translation was compleate, the record was called, "The Book of Mormon". Joseph Smith spent his life sharing this book and establishing "The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints" through revelation. He was shot and killed at Carthage jail in his late 30's. 

This is actually a very beautiful story that I'm briefly summerizing so if you're interested in it let me know. :)
