When the LDS Church published Joseph Smith’s journals, I read them from cover to cover, thinking that it would be a profound spiritual experience to study the life of our founding Prophet. The things I found in his personal accounts were disturbing, confusing, and highly contradictory to modern church teachings. I could not maintain my integrity while also continuing to teach the specious modern narrative of Joseph Smith’s life to these precious girls. So, in June 2017, I resigned from my calling with a very heavy heart. I am still willing to post new activity ideas from whoever wants to contribute. I appreciate your compassion and understanding in this matter.
