The Apostasy and the Restoration

The Apostasy and the Restoration

“I have sent forth the fulness of my gospel by the hand of my servant Joseph” (Doctrine and Covenants 35:17).

The outlines in this unit will help the young women understand the Great Apostasy and how Jesus Christ restored His Church and the fulness of His gospel through the Prophet Joseph Smith. In this unit the young women can learn about the key events of the Restoration and discover the relevance of those events in their lives.

Learning about the Apostasy and Restoration can help young women value and appreciate the precious truths that God has restored in our day. The experiences they have in this unit can strengthen their testimony of the Book of Mormon, the mission of the Prophet Joseph Smith, and Heavenly Father’s love for His children.

Outlines to Choose from This Month


Consider how you can plan activities that connect with what the youth are learning. The Church’s Youth Activities site is available to assist you. Many of the learning activities in these outlines could also serve as effective Mutual activities. Work with class presidencies to select and plan appropriate activities that reinforce what the young women learn on Sunday.
