And now, after the many testimonies which have been given of him, this is the testimony, last of all, which we give of him: That he lives!
For we saw him, even on the right hand of God; and we heard the voice bearing record that he is the Only Begotten of the Father—
That by him, and through him, and of him, the worlds are and were created, and the inhabitants thereof are begotten sons and daughters unto God.

This Is God’s House (Children’s #30a)
Doctrine & Covenants 110:1–10 (the first experience mentioned below)
Doctrine & Covenants 76:11–14, 20–24 (the second experience)
- April 3, 1836, was Easter Sunday. After taking the sacrament with other saints in newly dedicated Kirtland Temple, Joseph Smith and Oliver Cowdery found a quiet place behind a veil in the temple and prayed.
- The Savior appeared to them and declared
- What does it mean to say that Jesus Christ is “he who liveth”? It doesn’t just mean that He rose from the tomb on the third day and appeared to His Galilean disciples. It means that He lives today. He speaks through prophets today. He leads His Church today. And He heals wounded souls and broken hearts today.
- The Prophet Joseph Smith actually saw the risen Savior several times. In another experience, afterwards Joseph and Sidney described their testimony that He lives.
How can I get a testimony like Joseph Smith’s?

We Thank Thee, O God, for a Prophet (Hymns, #19)
Doctrine & Covenants 1:30, 37-38
- In verse 30, it says that this is the only true and living church. What does that mean?
- How does the church live? (Read verses 37-38). We have a living prophet and apostles that can keep telling us what the right choices are when the world tells us differently.
What question do I want answered in General Conference this weekend?
Print these infographs on the Prophet and Apostles to learn more about them.
Did Jesus Really Live Again? (Children’s #64)

- Joseph Smith knew how it feels to mourn the death of loved ones. Two of his brothers, Alvin and Don Carlos, died as young men. Joseph and Emma buried six children, each younger than two years old.
- What do we learn about the Resurrection in these scriptures? How does this make you feel?
How can I change how I live because I know about the Resurrection?

This Is My Beloved Son (Children’s, #76)
- Even though Joseph Smith was killed, what he did will never be taken from the earth. How is that possible? (the Priesthood is passed down by the laying on of hands)
- President Nelson has the exact same priesthood and authority that Joseph Smith was given from Peter, James and John, and also from John the Baptist!
- What do we use the Priesthood for now? (blessings, baptism, sacrament, temple ordinances, etc.)
What can I do to prepare my heart for General Conference?
Print out the pictures of the First Presidency and 12 Apostles. Write their names on similar sized papers and play a memory game where you match their names to their pictures.
He Died That We Might Live Again (Children’s #65)
Doctrine and Covenants 18:10–13; 19:16–19; 45:3–5; 76:69–70
- Easter isn’t just about the Resurrection – it’s also about the Atonement, when Jesus suffered for our sins in the Garden of Gethsemane and then died for us on the cross.
- What do we learn about the Atonement in the scriptures we read?
- Why did Jesus choose to suffer? What do I need to do to be blessed by His sacrifice? How can I know the Atonement is working in my life?
Make a list of what your know about the Atonement.
