Resurrection Joseph Fielding Smith Jr., Doctrines of Salvation, Vol.2, p.47 - p.48 We are sons and daughters of God in the spirit. Through the atonement of Jesus Christ, we receive the resurrection, the spirit and the body being united inseparably, never to be divided, so that we will never die again. We thus become immortal, and if we keep the commandments which are given us, we will inherit celestial glory. When we receive this great blessing, we will be sons of God, joint-heirs with Jesus Christ. Joseph Fielding Smith Jr., Doctrines of Salvation, Vol.2, p.54 We were all mature spirits before we were born, and the bodies of little children will grow after the resurrection to the full stature of the spirit, and all the blessings will be theirs through their obedience, the same as if they had lived to maturity and received them on the earth. Joseph Fielding Smith Jr., Doctrines of Salvation, Vol.2, p.54 Children who die in childhood will not be deprived of any blessing. When they grow , after the resurrection, to the full maturity of the spirit , they will be entitled to all the blessings which they would have been entitled to had they been privileged to tarry here and receive them. Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith , Section Four 1839 B 42, p.199 As concerning the resurrection, I will merely say that all men will come from the grave as they lie down, whether old or young ; there will not be "added unto their stature one cubit," neither taken from it; all will be raised by the power of God, having spirit in their bodies, and not blood. Children will be enthroned in the presence of God and the Lamb with bodies of the same stature that they had on earth, having been redeemed by the blood of the Lamb; they will there enjoy the fullness of that light, glory and intelligence, which is prepared in the celestial kingdom. "Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord, for they rest from their labors and their works do follow them." Joseph Fielding Smith Jr., Doctrines of Salvation, Vol.2, p.293-294 CHILDREN RESURRECTED AS CHILDREN. Of course, children who die do not grow in the grave. They will come forth with their bodies as they were laid down, and then they will grow to the full stature of manhood or womanhood after the resurrection, but all will have their bodies fully restored.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
