Sharing the First Vision in comfortable ways

A few weeks ago I was sitting in a high council meeting of the Shadow Mountain Stake. I always look forward to these meetings where I can sit with this council. They’ve become such good friends and a critical support for me. 

Each time we meet, I invite the members of the council to add any agenda items that they would like to cover while together. This particular meeting, one of the council members wanted to say a few words about how he was answering the invitation of President Nelson to learn more about the restoration in preparation for General Conference. 

“Select your own questions. Design your own plan. Act on any of these invitations to prepare yourself for sharing the important messages of the ongoing Restoration.”

He told us about his own hobby of collecting coins. He had a picture of a penny minted in 1820, the same year as the First Vision, in which Joseph Smith saw and conversed with God the Father and His Son, Jesus Christ.
