Overview

In this thoughtful and inspiring book, beloved speaker and author, Lucile Johnson, shares intimate and heartwarming memories of her mother-an extraordinary woman whose unreserved love for her husband and children has been a shining example for Lucile and her own family. With warmth, wit, and insight, Lucile tells the stories, and dispenses the loving wisdom and counsel that will make you laugh, cry, and more deeply appreciate the astounding influence of women in today's world. "Mother was one of the kindest, most loving, generous natured, and nonjudgmental women on the planet," Lucile writes. "She was not perfect; but she loved her family perfectly, so in the end, little else mattered."

Relating many of the experiences that helped to shape her own character, Lucile creates an endearing portrait of the woman who, against all odds, entered her straight-haired, toothless seven year- old daughter in a "Better Baby Contest"; who shared Lucile's heartbreak over a cruel trick by her schoolmates, then taught her to learn from adversity; and whose loving advice on Lucile's wedding day set her on the path to happiness. Legacy of Love captures the glory and majesty of motherhood and will be a welcome gift for any woman on any occasion.

LUCILE SHORT JOHNSON grew up in California. She met her husband and was baptized a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints while she was attending college. Lucile went back to school for advanced degrees when she was a grandmother, then began speaking and counseling extensively. Lucile has addressed thousands of people over the years--the majority of them women-and has touched their lives and hearts.
