Great in the Eyes of God
I felt a palpable spirit at this special place, Nauvoo, Illinois, when I took this photo. I felt strongly the echoes of history and the truth of the work of the Lord, revealed so clearly and directly to the Prophet Joseph Smith, while I was here.
Speaking of Joseph and Hyrum Smith, "He lived great, and he died great in the eyes of God and his people; and like most of the Lord’s anointed in ancient times, has sealed his mission and his works with his own blood; and so has his brother Hyrum. In life they were not divided, and in death they were not separated!" —Doctrine & Covenants 135:3
