Inside back cover: The First Vision, by Jacinta R. Freire Rosales Zumaeta. “I saw a pillar of light. … When the light rested upon me I saw two Personages, whose brightness and glory defy all description,” wrote the Prophet Joseph Smith (JS—H 1:16–17). This moment is captured in a Chilean crewel embroidery, based on a painting by Greg K. Olsen. (Original painting © Greg K. Olsen; stitchery © Jacinta R. Freire Rosales Zumaeta; may not be copied.)
