- Where did the Articles of Faith come from?
In March 1842 the Prophet Joseph Smith received a letter from Mr. Wentworth, a newspaper publisher in Chicago, Illinois, asking questions about the Church. As Joseph answered the letter, he was inspired to write thirteen statements that contain many of the beliefs of the Church. These statements became our Articles of Faith.
Later, in 1880, members at the October general conference of the Church voted to accept the Articles of Faith as scripture.

As a family we are now committed to memorizing an article of faith each month starting with the first one.
We believe in God, the Eternal Father, and in his son, Jesus Christ, and in the Holy Ghost.
I even created word docs with a fun border with an article of faith inside, 13 total. I printed the first one on white cardstock and "laminated" it with contact paper and hung it on the fridge.
