Truth from the Earth

Truth from the Earth (small)It was a fall September day when Joseph Smith first went to the Hill Cumorah to look upon the golden plates that would be translated to The Book of Mormon.  For four years he returned to that same spot on the same day until he was fully prepared to take them away.  Joseph was not a perfect instrument. He required a lot of growth to be worthy to undertake such a sacred task such as taking those plates and translating them. I think we are all imperfect instruments, and sometimes it takes lot of time and growth, but the Lord can and does use us for many great and important purposes.
I wanted to try and capture the serenity in that forest Joseph might have felt while gazing upon these holy records. I’ve walked where he was, and it truly is such a beautiful place where the spirit can be felt so strong. I know that these things happened. I have The Book of Mormon as a testimony of this truth.

About sisterweber

I am currently a Mormon missionary serving in western New York for The Church of Jesus Chirst of Latter-Day Saints! Let me tell you how strange I am currently - I don't watch tv or any form of entertainment; I left behind my family, home, school, and art I love so so much; I'm working 6 days a week, 14 hours a day to bring people unto Christ; I'm not getting paid (I'm actually paying); and I CHOSE to do it! The reason why? I know this is the most important thing I could ever do. I know that there is nothing in all the world that can bring people greater happiness than the Gospel of Jesus Christ in its fulness. This message I'm sharing with people is unique and true. God loves all of us so much that He has restored the church Jesus Christ set up onto the earth again, and all people have a right to know. Everyone has a right to be as happy as I am.
