    James Taught the Gospel

    Illustrations by Apryl Stott

    Did you know that Jesus had brothers and sisters? One was named James. When he grew up, he helped lead the Church.

    James taught that we should be patient. He also taught about faith. He wrote his teachings down. Now they are part of the Bible.

    One special verse is James 1:5. It says that if we have questions, we can ask God. Many years after James wrote this scripture, a boy named Joseph Smith read it. He prayed to know which church to join.

    Joseph’s prayer was answered! James had helped Joseph know what to do when he had a question!

    When I have questions, I can ask God, like James taught!
