Follow the Prophet

Joseph Smith read from the Bible in James 1:5, “If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God.”

Joseph wondered which church he should join. He prayed to know what to do. Joseph saw Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. Joseph obeyed the instructions They gave to him and became a leader and a prophet.

We can follow Joseph’s example. We can talk to Heavenly Father about our questions, and we can follow the answers that come to us. Remember these things as you read the poem and color the picture of the Prophet Joseph Smith on the next page.

Prophet Joseph Smith

Joseph Smith, a young boy, asked which church was right.

God the Father and His Son appeared in heavenly light.

He received the gold plates, restoring gospel truth.

Joseph organized the Church again upon the earth.
