Joseph Smith: Prophet of the Restoration


BREATHTAKING EVERY TIME! Joseph Smith: Prophet of the Restoration is Probably my VERY most favorite movie ever! I can't even begin to describe how strongly the Spirit effects me each time I've watched it. I especially LOVE that my favorite Ralph Waldo Emerson quote opens the movie, "Men have come to speak of revelation as long ago given and done, as if God were dead. It is the office of a true teacher to show us that God is, not was, that He speaketh, not spake…The need was never greater of new revelation than now.”

I've been uber disheartened considering how long the run was for both Legacy & the Testaments in the Joseph Smith Building before they were released on DVD for home viewing. This evening though I found THIS blogger. He has somehow posted the Joseph Smith movie on his youtube account so we can access it no matter where in the world we live! I'm SOOOO excited, cause the last time I saw it was almost 2 1/2 years ago! So, if you've not had the opportunity to see yet at the Joseph Smith Building or any of the handful of LDS church Visitor Center/Historic sites currently showing the film, then check this blog out & scroll down in order to watch. ***FYI: Be sure you've got a box of Kleenex handy...and a notebook & pen to jot down your favorite lines/quotes!*** Enjoy the greater spiritual connection gained through this movie!
You will be amazed! I've not met a single person who has come away from this movie unchanged.
