In Palmyra, New York in 1820, 14 year-old Joseph Smith wonders about what church is true. He feels that none of the other faiths are not true and wants an answer. One spring morning, he goes out to pray in a grove near his home and starts to pray. He feels an evil spirit trying to prevent him from praying. Then, he sees the most beautiful light and sees 2 personages. They are Heavenly Father and his son Jesus Christ. They told Joseph that he should not join any of the churches because they were of the wrong faith. They also told Joseph to restore the true church of Jesus Christ. (IMDB)

This is a classic that is perfect for any Family Home Evening. Sure, it is a bit dated, but the message is clear. You are going to be able to feel the spirit when you watch this and you are going to be able to grow your testimony a little bit more with the instruction and teaching within. The movie is rather funny to us at the very beginning because we always remember Monty Python and the Holy Grain when Sir Belvadear is running to the castle and it looks like he is not making any progress. It is rather funny if you watch it and think of that.
There are many parts in this short movie that are going to help you in your testimony and you are going to be able to grow closer to your Savior. Everyone needs to remember who they are and where they come from and this video helps put everything in perspective. There are many things which you are going to be able to learn if you have a lesson with the video message. We still get misty-eyed when the first vision is quoted. It is such a powerful moment.
