Here's an outstanding collection of all those inspiring stories from Church history that you've heard and wanted (but couldn't find) for your class. A companion volume to Best-Loved Poems of the LDS People, Best-Loved Stories of the LDS People includes accounts of everything from Joseph Smith's childhood leg operation to David O. McKay's mission experience of learning "Whate'er Thou Art, Act Well Thy Part."
More than 200 other stories are included, such as Joseph F. Smith's encounter with a rough anti-Mormon in "True Blue, Through and Through" and "Fooling a Bulldog," by Parley P. Pratt. You'll find stories about faith, answers to prayer, and revelation, courage, honesty, and many other gospel principles and doctrines. A valuable reference that belongs in every Latter-day Saint home.

I have not made it all the way through the book yet, but what I have read, I enjoyed. Could use these short stories for FHE.
