Scripture

“At length, I came to the conclusion that I must either remain in darkness and confusion or else I must do as James directs, that is, ask of God. …So, in accordance with this, my determination to ask of God, I retired to the woods to make the attempt. …After I had retired to the place where I had previously designed to go, having looked around me, and finding myself alone, I kneeled down and began to offer up the desires of my heart to God.” – Joseph Smith—HISTORY 1:13-15

Quote

“This was the [place] of the Restoration, where the Father’s voice would be heard after nearly two millennia in a wonderful vision, talking to the boy Joseph Smith. There he saw two personages, whose brightness and glory defy all description. Yes, God revealed Himself to man again. The darkness that covered the earth began to dissipate. The prophecies regarding the Restoration began to be fulfilled.” Jario Mazzagardi
