Richard E. Turley Jr. and Brittany A. Chapman, Editors.  Salt Lake City, Utah: Deseret Book Company, 2011.  Hardbound, 6x9", 521 pages.

 

Although approximately half the people in the history of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints have been women, their lives of faith and dedication are just beginning to receive the attention they merit. This groundbreaking series recounts the stories of women in Church history, often in their own words, as they share their trials, triumphs, and testimonies.

Volume 1 features women born between 1775 and 1820 and samples the lives of both well-known women and previously obscure ones whose lives of faith also deserve emulation. They were first-generation Latter-day Saints who experienced the characteristic trials of their day, including abandonment by family or friends when they joined the Church, persecution after joining, and the hardships of pioneering again and again as they moved from one location to another.

Here you will encounter not only such well-known figures as Emma Smith and Eliza R. Snow but also an early Mexican convert who never traveled more than a few miles from her home, a devoted plural wife who homesteaded in rural Utah, and a plucky Scottish coal miner who at an advanced age sailed to America and walked across the plains.

The faith these women exhibited as they rejoiced in blessings and dealt with struggles provides a model for us in facing our own challenges as we strive to build our own lives of faith today.
