    I am always amazed at how the Lord prepares his leaders. Even from early on they seem to be trained to one day lead the church in a specific way and in a specific era.
    L. Tom Perry is an amazing man. I loved reading about his ancestors and how they shaped his life. I enjoyed reading about his early life and his shyness. I really liked reading about his work history, his church service, and his family life. What a great example he is to all of us.
    One thing I learned about Elder Perry is that the "L" is for Lowell, his given name. And that he used to go by that name, but when Elder Perry's younger brother was born and couldn't say his name and called him Wo-Wo instead...Elder Perry pleaded with his family to start calling him Tom...and he has been L. Tom Perry ever since.
    One of my favorite stories is when Elder Perry used to take his young son, Lee, with him on speaking assignments. To help his son be quiet and attentive, Elder Perry gave him the task of watching and then signaling like the three monkeys representing see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil...
    If Elder Perry was not standing up straight the son was suppose to cover his eyes.
    If Elder Perry was speaking too loudly the son was suppose to cover his ears.
    And when it was time for Elder Perry to finish speaking the son was suppose to cover his mouth.
    I especially loved reading about his love for his wife and children. And his love of the Lord and his willingness to serve where ever he is called.
    I also loved that they included pictures...
