Visiting Nauvoo is a game changer. It’s hard to visit the town, experience the county fair and take in the pageant without having it change you a little, whether your a member of the church or not.
Around every corner is a monument of a dedicated people unlike many others. These homes, stores, groves and trails are lined with stories of a people who sacrificed much for what they believed in. It’s hard not to respect that and to not feel the pain of the people driven out across the Mississippi river.
My simple recommendation is just go, take your family and go. See the pageant and have church history come alive for you.
