The First Smith Family Podcast Is Here
A great time to sit and watch the Smith Family Podcast would be during family night or General Conference weekend.
Elder M. Russell Ballard and Wallace B. Smith, Co-Chairs of the Joseph Smith Sr. and Lucy Mack Smith Family Association desire that the younger generation know the faith-promoting stories of their ancestors.
The Joseph Smith Sr. and Lucy Mack Family Association presents this podcast to the family and ask you to watch this short ten-minute video during a family night to help build faith in the work of our ancestors and recognize the sacrifices and commitment that fill our heritage.
Share the podcasts with your friends. Use social media to promote these wonderful stories. Our family and friends need to see these messages of faith and determination.
Since the last email newsletter, the Smith family’s efforts have been featured on the Church News and Events page of LDS.org.
Please encourage your friends and neighbors to view this article and others described below. It is our hope that this can be a perpetual scholarship. You can donate here:
Our roots come from New England and what a wonderful way to promote Joseph’s name for good in New England.
