On the cover: Any review of Latter-day Saint women would have to begin with Lucy Mack Smith, wife of Patriarch Joseph Smith, Sr., and mother of the Prophet Joseph Smith, Jr. This month’s cover painting depicts Mother Smith at 45 to 50 years of age and the Smith family awaiting the return of Joseph, Jr., from one of his visits to Cumorah. The painting is by staff designer Howard Post and represents the first of many articles on outstanding Latter-day Saint women, both living and deceased. See page 68.
