Emmaline's Talk

So Emmaline gave a talk a few weeks ago in Church, and it was supposed to be about the Restoration, and I thought it would be fun to save, so here's her talk. She wrote all of it by herself (she was very specific about the wording) except I made her put in the scripture, and I wouldn't let her say that the other Churches were bad. (We had to explain that that the other Churches have good parts to them, but we believe that they don't have the full Gospel of Jesus Christ.)

"Joseph Smith was working hard in a field. All of the people in the Churches wanted Joseph Smith to go to their Churches. Everyone was fighting and arguing. Joseph Smith was wondering if he could go to any of the Churches or not. So Joseph Smith looked in the scriptures to see if any of the Churches were right or wrong. The scripture said, 'If any of you lack wisdom let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.' That means if you have a question you can ask Heavenly Father and He'll give you the answer. Joseph Smith went into the forest to pray so nobody could see him pray. He saw something dark, then he saw something light. The light was Heavenly Father and Jesus. They told Joseph Smith not to go to any of the Churches. Joseph Smith was supposed to start a new Church. Then he knew that Heavenly Father and Jesus were watching him and that they would always be there for him. In the name of Jesus Christ, amen."
