Palmyra, NY

I can't even explain what a special weekend i had this last week... it truly was amazing. With my ward here in New Canaan i was able to go to Palmyra and all the many sacred sites there. We first went to the Printing Press where the Book Of Mormon was printed and that was awesome. We then went to Joseph Smith's home. It was interesting and humbling to see how little and simple his home was. We then had the privilege of walking through the Sacred Grove. The feelings i had there were amazing and i never wanted to leave. After visiting the Sacred Grove we then went to Hill Cumorah and that also was a very sacred peaceful place. We also had the privilege to see the Hill Cumorah Pageant. The Pageant was awesome and helped bring the Characters of the Book Of Mormon to life. Then on Sunday we were able to end our trip with having a testimony meeting in the Sacred Grove. My trip to Palmyra really helped strengthen my testimony and helped me understand and really imagine what happened to our dear prophet Joseph Smith. I hope that if you ever travel through Palmyra NY you take the time and visit the Sacred Grove.
