Emma Smith : my story( Visual )

3 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

By the side of the founder of a new faith stood an elect lady of undeniable courage. From Emma's point of view, we see the events that molded the wife of the Prophet Joseph Smith (founder of the Mormon faith) into a strong and compassionate woman. The film begins near the end of Emma's life. Her adopted daughter, Julia Murdock Smith, returns home to Emma and shares several hardships she has had. Emma relates to Julia some of her own life's experiences to give her a different perspective and illustrate the importance of maintaining faith amid such trials. Various turning points in Emma's life are revealed as she recounts experiences ranging from her childhood with a father that was very strict and who forbade praying in the home, to her courtship and marriage to Joseph Smith, and the challenges she faced in being the wife of the Prophet. The film also includes brief insights into her life and character after the martyrdom of Joseph until her own death in Nauvoo in 1879

To this day, Emma Hale Smith remains a revered yet enigmatic figure in Church history. As the first president of the world's largest women's organization, the Relief Society, and as a scribe for her husband as the Prophet translated portions of the Book of Mormon, Emma played a crucial part in the founding of the restored gospel. Yet her decision to remain in Nauvoo after her husband's martyrdom resulted in deep misunderstandings. The apparent friction between her and Brigham Young, Emma's feelings on plural marriage, her role in the RLDS Church, and her marriage to Lewis Bidamon are just some of the topics explored in this documentary. Join prominent LDS scholars and authors Susan Easton Black, Gracia Jones, and Paul Smith as they reveal answers to the questions about Emma's life and history
