Abstract

One of the most powerful witnesses of the Book of Mormon in the early days of this dispensation came from Lucy Mack Smith, the mother of Joseph Smith. Lucy Smith was intimately involved in bringing forth the Book of Mormon and bore testimony of the book throughout her life. Lucy had the rare privilege of handling the golden plates as well as the Urim and Thummim and the breastplate while they were covered with a cloth, and may have actually seen the plates uncovered as well. The Book of Mormon was an important key to her testimony, and the same can be true of us.
