Be Still My Sonby David Beagley
This story depicts the heartwrenching emotions the boy experienced as he watched his family leave the Church
Be Still, My Son is the true story of a boy born into a typical Latterday Saint family in the heart of Utah. In his youth, he enjoyed the blessings of living the gospel until his father became disaffected with the Church and sought polygamy as an alternative.
This story depicts the heartwrenching emotions the boy experienced as he watched his family leave the Church for an austere fundamentalist lifestyle. He spent long, hot summers in the polygamist community of Short Creek, Arizona. Durning the school year, he had to hide his true identity for fear that his family's underground lifestyle would be found out. When he turned sixteen, he escaped and entered an unknown world full of challenges. He relates how the Lord carefully guided him back to the Church with the promise that "life would be filled with constant rewards." A series of lifealtering events taught him that we all must "learn to wait on the Lord and trust him." This is a powerful story of one man's journey to elusive happiness.
