"The Loving Friend of Children, the Prophet Joseph"
BYU Religious Studies Center
"What was it about Joseph Smith that so powerfully affected the young people who associated with him? That question is not easy to answer because there is so much to the Prophet--so much that is remarkable, inspiring, and worth emulating... Most simply stated, the Prophet's greatness grew out of his efforts to be like the Savior." The author explores the character and teaching principles of Joseph Smith that made him so effective with children; his power of plainness, example, and the "one-by-one" principle.
