Stories can strengthen as little else can. They can add sparkle to a talk or lesson, or deepen the sense of the Spirit. In some important ways, our very understanding of the gospel is based on stories, true stories that change the lives of those who read them and make them part of their own experience.
This third volume of Best-Loved Stories of the LDS People contains some of the best true, faith-promoting stories in the Mormon experience. Following in the tradition of the Best-Loved series, Best-Loved Stories of the LDS People, Volume 3 contains hours of inspirational reading for you and your family. Some of the stories will already be familiar; others will be new discoveries. But each one is a treasure.
Here are stories of faith and conversion, prayer and protection, courage and healing, humor and truth. You’ll read Martin Harris’s testimony of the Book of Mormon, which he never denied, even after he left the Church. You’ll learn how Hugh B. Brown converted an entire congregation who were praying for the Lord to send them a new minister. And you’ll recall the honesty and integrity of Jacob Hamblin in his dealings with the Native Americans in the early history of pioneer Utah. Your testimony will be strengthened as you read about the Prophet Joseph Smith’s experiences in Liberty Jail, and your heart will be touched as you see the young B. H. Roberts come to Utah to join his mother, crossing the Plains without shoes.
An excellent addition to the Best-Loved series, this book also stands on its own as a comprehensive collection of true stories that will touch the heart and lift the soul. It is a book that belongs in every Latter-day Saint home.
