Joseph Fielding Smith

Joseph Fielding Smith learned to work hard as a young man. His mother took care of women who were giving birth, and Joseph drove her carriage when she visited patients. As he grew, Joseph developed a love for the scriptures. He wrote many books about the doctrine of the Church. As President of the Church, he dedicated the Provo Utah Temple.
