Church History Tour- Sacred Places

Looking towards the Sacred Grove from the back door of Joseph Smith's childhood home I have had a week I will never forget as I was part of a Church History tour of the Eastern States.  We began our tour in Boston, Massachussettes touching on American History and how it was intertwined with the early ancestors of Joseph Smith.  We went through Vermont, Pennsylvania, and New York.  We ended our tour in Kirtland, Ohio which I learned is one of the most sacred places on earth. I am forever changed by what I learned and experienced. This picture you are seeing is one I took while standing in the kitchen area of Joseph Smith's log home as he had a perfect view of "the place he pre-designed to go" to pray to God.  It was there that in answer to his question, "which of all the churches is the right one to join?" an innocent but heart-felt question by a young 14 year old boy -God, the Father and His Beloved Son Jesus Christ appeared to Joseph.
