FHE: Joseph Smith

Today marks the 172nd anniversary of the martyrdom of Joseph and Hyrum Smith. For tonight's lesson, learn about the Prophet Joseph Smith by watching a video of the First Vision, by reading about it, or by reading an account of what happened the day he and his brother were killed. Share your testimony with your family and make a goal to read the Book of Mormon together as a family each day.

For tonight's activity, play one of Joseph's favorite games: stick pull. To play, two people sit on the ground facing each other. Each person grabs hold of the same long stick (like a broom handle or pole) and tries to pull the stick in their direction. The person who falls over first, loses the game.

As Joseph Did
by Tara Wade

Joseph knelt while in his youth
And prayed to the Lord to know the truth.
I will sincerely pray as Joseph did.
He prayerfully translated plates of gold.
He did the work that he was told.
I will serve the Lord as Joseph did.
Joseph received the priesthood dear.
He taught the gospel without fear.
I will defend the Church as Joseph did.
Joseph was martyred in Carthage Jail,
But in his mission he did not fail.
I will obey God’s will as Joseph did.
And in these latter days of choices,
I will listen to the prophets’ voices.
I will return with honor as Joseph did.
