“Church History Cards,” Friend, February 2021
“We beheld and bear record that these things are true.”
“Testimony of the Three Witnesses,” Book of Mormon
Oliver Cowdery, David Whitmer, and Martin Harris were friends of the Prophet Joseph Smith.
They saw an angel, who showed them the gold plates. They wrote down their testimony. You can read it after the introduction of the Book of Mormon.
They were some of the first people to be baptized as members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
“That book was brought forth by the power of God.”
Lucy Mack Smith, History of Joseph Smith (Bookcraft, 1958), p. 204
She was Joseph Smith’s mother.
She taught her children about God. They prayed and read the Bible together.
She led a group of Saints to Kirtland by boat. When the water froze, she encouraged the Saints to pray. The ice cracked so the boat could sail through!
