Joe Smith was a busy guy with all the face to face meetings with God and subsequent prophecies he had to dole out. In addition to that, he had numerous obligations stemming from his position of self-anointed General, and being a husband to so many wives. It’s a wonder the guy ever had time to sleep!

History of the Church 2:190-191; “William E. M’Lellin’s Blessing: In the name of the Lord, wisdom and intelligence shall be poured out upon him, to enable him to perform the great work that is incumbent upon him: that he may be spared until the Saints are gathered; that he may stand before kings and rulers to bear testimony, and be upheld by holy angels; and the nations of the earth shall acknowledge that God has sent him; he shall have power to overcome his enemies; and his life shall be spared in the midst of pestilence and destruction, and in the midst of his enemies. He shall be a prince and savior to God’s people. The tempter shall not overcome him, nor his enemies prevail against him; the heavens shall be opened unto him, as unto men in days of old. He shall be mighty in the hands of God, and shall convince thousands that God has sent him; and his days may be prolonged until the coming of the Son of Man. He shall be wafted as on eagles’ wings, from country to country, and from people to people; and be able to do wonders in the midst of this generation. Even so. Amen.”

Worshiping the Mormon Pioneers
I write this article with the intent of introducing the Mormon people to the idea of thinking about what, and/or whom they are worshiping. What I don’t want to do is send the message I’m here to bash, or ridicule the intent they hold in their hearts for Jesus.
Each year the state of Utah celebrates Pioneer Days in July, with the 24th of that month being the apex of their homage paid to the early Mormons who pushed, and pulled their handcarts and wagons from Nauvoo, Illinois to the Wasatch Front. Their second prophet Brigham Young, led the group of believers to their new home where they thought they could “live their religion” (aka polygamy) without being bothered by non-Mormons.
