America was founded by strong, determined people who placed their faith in God. The Church also was founded by such individuals. They were sometimes called rebels—fanatics—because their beliefs could not be changed or their voices stilled.

A Restoration Heritage is the saga of a family formed in a new nation and a new religion.

Mostly they were honest, hardworking people who placed their faith in a personal God and sought divine direction in their living.
