The Sacred Grove is Still Sacred

My family had the opportunity to visit the Sacred Grove, in Palmyra New York, this summer. This is the place where members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints believe Joseph Smith prayed and had a vision where God the Father and Jesus Christ appeared, called Joseph by name and spoke to him.

Joseph Smith was a simple country boy of fourteen who was praying aloud for the first time because of a verse he had just read in the Bible. That verse told him that if any one lacks wisdom, to ask God. So he prayed and asked.

Because of that humble prayer, the world will never be the same - my life will never be the same. Joseph's yearning to have his questions answered ushered in the restoration of the original gospel of Jesus Christ.

It seems to be a very peaceful spot.
