Product Description

Elder Dieter Uchtdorf captivated Latter-day Saints when he spoke in general conference about how his family was brought into the Church shortly after World War II by a wonderful, elderly single woman who invited his nonmember grandmother to Church. In this picture book, richly illustrated by talented artist Ben Sowards, Elder Uchtdorf shares compelling new details from the story about the impact that "Schwester Ewig" (whose German name translates to "Sister Eternal") had on his family. Readers will be moved by this story and by its powerful lessons: God protects and guides us. The smallest actions can have a profound effect in the lives of others. And when the light of the everlasting gospel enters our lives, things will never be the same.

This is the true story of Elder Uchdorf.

His life in war-torn Czechoslovakia, his family's move to his grandparents home in Germany, and how is family was introduced to the gospel by an elderly, single sister named Ewig, which translated means Sister Eternal.

Beautifully illustrated for telling to children.

Loved it!
