Great-great grandson of Martin and Caroline Young Harris
Thank you for taking the time to watch this interview on Rod and Jonathan’s Come Follow Me podcast.
I am a descendant of Martin Harris from two biological connections through my birth mother. We had a family intermarriage of two family members one generation apart from the two wives of Grandpa Martin. I am not a professional historian or researcher, but I have accepted the responsibility to keep the history of Martin Harris alive, particularly with the Martin Harris Pageant being shut down. As his direct descendant, I take liberties to try and analyze the events of his life that other historians usually only briefly mention. This will be apparent in the interview, which contains some new relevant analysis as his direct descendant that I wish I did not have to bring forth.
I only had two days notice of being on this podcast, but I feel we can all learn about the power of the atonement, repentance, forgiveness, and restitution through the life of Martin Harris. Studying his life brings the principles taught by the Book of Mormon prophets alive to me. In preparing for this interview, I have learned new information I did not know a week ago.
Here are my presentations on the Book of Mormon Evidence Streaming Site:

Feel free to ask any questions in the comments after viewing the presentation and I will accept the responsibility of personally answering each one. Please continue to support Rod Meldrum and the Firm Foundation in their work of bringing forth continuing evidence of the Book of Mormon, the Second Testament of the Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of God. Martin Harris sacrificed his earthly possessions and part of his family to help bring this marvelous work forth, so I humbly request that we will all remember and be grateful to him for that offering.
I pray that all of us may be strengthened in our testimony of the Book or Mormon and the mission of the Prophet Joseph Smith, the eternal friend of Martin Harris.
