But that is not what happened.
What actually happened the morning of Sept. 22, 1823, shows an aspect of Joseph's personality that may give insight into how he shared sacred experiences such as his First Vision.
The morning after Moroni appeared to Joseph, he went to work as usual. Even after his father noticed that he seemed tired (the visions took all night), Joseph did not tell anyone what he had seen. Not his father. Not his mother. Not his brothers or sisters.
It wasn't until the angel commanded him to tell his father that Joseph shared the story and what it meant.
