Product Description

A month prior to the April 1984 general conference, Ardeth Greene Kapp had an undeniable impression that a major calling loomed on the horizon. When the call came to serve as Young Women general president, she approached it with the same faith and optimism that has always been a hallmark of her life. As a young girl in the rural prairie town of Glenwood, Alberta, Canada, she could not have anticipated the experiences that awaited her in the farthest reaches of the world. 'When I was young,' Ardeth recalls, 'I thought the noblest thing in this life was to be a mother. I have since learned that the best mission in life is the one the Lord has prepared for me.' This intimate portrayal captures the joys and challenges in a life that did not follow the expected path, but that prepared a woman to fulfill a mighty role in the Lord's kingdom.

I picked up this book, not knowing too much about Sister Kapp except that she was the matron of the Cardston temple and went through with me the first time as a soon to be missionary. I now feel like she is a close friend, this book has given me amazing insight into how to deal with life's challenges by following Sister Kapp's example. I have had similar struggles and this book has opened my mind and blessed my life. She is one of those great women that I will strive to emulate, great book!

A wonderful book

In Stand as a Witness, Anita Thompson has written a fine faithful biography of Ardeth Greene Kapp, former Young Women general president of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Thompson has produced an inspiring story of an outstanding life. Her book is a good read which is well-crafted around important and interesting topics. The introduction pulls the reader into this life-story and sets a pace that is maintained throughout the work. Kapp is presented as a three-dimensional figure, not just a one-dimensional paragon of strength. We expected, of course, to see her triumphs, to hear of her outstanding moral and spiritual character, to learn of the consistent positive impact that she has had on others, and of her outstanding moral and spiritual character, to learn of the consistent positive impact that she has had on others, and of how hard she worked to achieve important goals. We are grateful to see her story rounded-out by accounts of her deep, long-lasting sorrow over being childless, of her self-doubts, and even a hint here and there of stress that occurs in every marriage, even the most loving and committed. Thompson presents a story with which common members of the Church can identify, and from which they can draw hope and comfort. This is a book I intend to share with others. --A. Guy Larkins
