The producers of “Emma Smith, My Story” will release a new DVD, “Children of Joseph,” on October 6th.
There is much about the Smith family that still remains unknown and overshadowed in misinformation. When the Prophet Joseph Smith was martyred in 1844, his wife Emma Hale Smith and five of their eleven children were left behind. Earnest attempts to aid and help the little Smith family became entangled in assumptions and misunderstandings on all sides, which have remained for generations.
Under the direction of Brigham Young the Saints traveled west and settled in Utah, while Emma and her family remained in Nauvoo Illinois. After producing “Emma
Smith, My Story,” many questions still remain, such as: Why did Emma stay? What caused the rift between Brigham and Emma? What happened to Joseph and Emma’s descendants?
“Children of Joseph” brings scholars and modern-day descendants together to share stories and insights about life after Joseph’s death, their discovery of the Gospel in recent years, and the miraculous efforts to mend the divide between the Smith and Young families. Begin to see the powers of Heaven work amongst the children of Joseph and Emma presently, which are exciting and of great interest.
