What is Mormonism? Mormonism is a religion that was started by Joseph Smith, Jr in the 1820’s in New York. The main form of Mormonism that is present in Utah and in the rest of the world, is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS). The Joseph Smith, Jr along with his up and coming religion was expelled from New York, than Missouri, than Illinois. After Joseph Smith, Jr’s murder in Illinois, Brigham Young led the LDS pioneers to Utah which became their permanent home. Now that the church was settled, Mormons could practice their beliefs and cultivate their family unit.
