    The Apostasy and the Restoration

    You’ll be studying about the Apostasy and the Restoration in your Sunday classes this month. As you study and discuss this topic, you may ponder these questions: How did the Restoration begin? How do the things Joseph Smith did affect my life today?

    For some answers to these questions, read the scriptures listed in the Topical Guide under “Joseph Smith” and “Restoration of the Gospel.” You’ll also find teachings on the plan of salvation in general conference talks at conference.lds.org.
