This upcoming year—2020—is one of the most exciting in the history of the Church of Jesus Christ! 2020 marks 200 years—the Bicentennial—since the First Vision. This stunning Bicentennial Calendar (available in limited quantities) celebrates The First Vision with gorgeous photographs each month and with quotes from Joseph Smith that will fill your heart with wonder. Joseph said: "I could explain a hundred fold more than I ever have of the glories of the kingdoms manifested to me in the vision, were I permitted, and were the people prepared to receive them." This calendar will be a constant reminder all year of one of the most significant events in all of history—an event in the early spring of 1820 that would change the history of the entire world. This visit of Heavenly Father and His Beloved Son Jesus Christ to the boy Joseph Smith was the opening of the Dispensation of the Fulness of Times.

Photographer, author, and researcher Scot Facer Proctor has made Joseph Smith and the Restoration a focus of his studies for more than 40 years. His book Witness of the Light, A Photographic Journey in the Footsteps of the American Prophet Joseph Smith was a National Geographic-style book that graced the homes of the Latter-day Saints for a generation. His wife, Maurine, and he brought forth a Revised and Enhanced edition of Joseph Smith's history more than 20 years ago. Scot's Church History photography was featured in a 13-month-long display in the Museum of Church History and Art in Salt Lake City and was seen by hundreds of thousands of visitors. He also published a children's book on The First Vision, A Day Like No Other, simultaneously in 11 languages. His acclaimed Witness of the Light fireside has been seen by nearly 400,000 people in scores of stakes across North America. He and Maurine also produced a 2-hour documentary on Joseph Smith and the Restoration. Scot and Maurine have also been leading extensive Church History tours for the past 28 years.
