I was born into a family with a long Christian heritage.Both of my parents, all four of my grandparents, all eight of my great-grandparents, and as many aunts, uncles and cousins (that I know of) were believers.
And when Anne and her husband moved to Utah, they joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints—the Mormon Church.The book describes itself as a chronicle of early indigenous peoples of the Americas and their dealings with God.Based on the name of that book, early followers of Smith were more widely known as Mormons, and their faith was called Mormonism. For the largest and most prominent branch of Mormonism, see The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. For the general religious movement, see Latter Day Saint movement. Mormonism is the predominant religious tradition of the Latter Day Saint movement of Restorationist Christianity.Joseph Smith founded the movement in Western New York in the 1820s.
