a NEW photo and short Sunday sermon


Happy Sunday!

Last week as we traveled from Boston up to Montreal, we stopped in at this monument in Sharon, Vermont. This monument was put in place in the year 1905 to commemorate the 1805 birthplace of a boy who would, later in life at the age of 14, see God the Father and Jesus Christ, who would, at the age of 17, have an angel appear to him and instruct him of an ancient record that was buried near his home, would later be instructed of exactly where is was buried and still later, would translate the ancient scriptural text and publish it as the Book of Mormon, and to ultimately establish Jesus Christ’s church again on the earth.

It all began with Joseph reading this scripture in the New Testament – James 1:5 and then going to the woods near his home to pray:

If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.


Last week’s short Sunday sermon’s theme was miracles. Well, the people at this monument told us about many miracles that came to pass just to erect this monument – from finding a large enough piece of granite, to having the mucky-muddy ground freeze up just in time to allow the workers to get the heavy monument up the hill.

We stopped by this monument on a beautiful spring day.  So glad we took the time to visit! Here’s more about The Testimony of the Prophet Joseph Smith.

Have a great day.  Do or learn something NEW!
