In September 2013, LDS Apostle D. Todd Christofferson, delivered a speech at a BYU devotional announcing the Church’s plan to release selected documents of Joe Smith’s history. In the process of doing this, the online ‘Gospel Topics’ portal would find itself under a major revision with housing the newly published ‘LDS Essays’. In sum, these essays are the explanations on various topics on the histories of both the Church, and Joe Smith.
Today it looks as if the Church is holding the marathon spring cleaning event of the century. In addition to the essays, you can find another set of documents containing more of the Church’s history, Smith diaries, and revelations, et al, at JosephSmithPapers. This is what we’re looking at today! Woo-hoo! We’re actually focusing on a couple of different things, so hang with me, and it’ll all make sense!

Deuteronomy 17:17; “Neither shall he multiply wives to himself, that his heart turn not away…”
Today we’re looking at the once busy, and always questionable, life of Joseph Smith, Jr. A good friend of the ministry, Lee Baker, posted an open letter/question on our Facebook page to a prominent LDS attorney asking a vital question, which in reality all Mormons should concern themselves with.
Franklin Dewey Richards
April 2, 1821 – December 9, 1899
“Except for a six-and-one-half-year gap, men of the Richards family have served as General Authorities continuously from 1840 to the present.” – D. Michael Quinn, Ensign 1980
Mr. Quinn’s great insight is a shining example of what the Richards family means to Mormonism, and vice versa. Their identity as a family on a whole, and individually, has been so immersed and wrapped up in Mormonism, it’d be no stretch of the imagination to state they’d be lost without each other. They were, and still are, the ‘who’s who’ of Mormonism.
