President Gordon B. Hinckley on Joseph F. Smith, 20 September 2005

President Hinckley gave a devotional address at BYU on the above noted date. As part of the devotional, he shared some stories from Joseph F. Smith's life- much of it I had heard before, but as I reread the address this morning, I was struck by his experience in Hawaii- how much different it was for me there as visiting faculty at BYU-Hawaii! I was also impressed by his unwillingness to succomb to self-pity once he had gained a sense of who he was and how he wanted to BE.
