Product Description

In this exciting book, author Larry A. Morris explores a defining principle from the life of each Church President and illustrates how the leader lived that principle. For example, President Ezra Taft Benson once proclaimed, 'Do the right thing and let the chips fall where they may.' This personal motto was tested and retested during Elder Benson's welfare mission to postwar Europe and his tenure as the U.S. Secretary of Agriculture. 'Trials will prove blessings in disguise,' promised Lorenzo Snow, who experienced the loss of his wife while serving a mission to Europe and who, during his administration as President of the Church, persisted in prayer when the heavens seemed closed to him. With wonderful insights about life, work, character, and love, Words to Live By provides meaningful direction for our everday lives.
