President-Emeritus Wallace B. Smith shares stories from his youth, including studying medicine and serving in the military in aviation medicine under the doctor draft law, his dad's presidency in the church, and being called to serve as President-Prophet. Smith also discusses how he emphasized the concept "faith to grow" to the church in the eighties, what led up to the ordination of women, the fallout that brought, building the Independence Temple, and the decision to name a successor outside of the Smith family.
The prophetic role is taking people where they ought to be under the direction of the Holy Spirit.
