This collection of testimonies endeavors to briefly share how Latter-day Saint women see themselves and their relationships with God. We are such a diverse group of women!
Faces of Faith features Mormon women across all stages of life including those who are single, married, divorced, or widowed. Women of vibrant health or are chronically ill.
Women without children or women who have lost children, and sisters with children at home, with step-children, with grown children, with struggling children. Seen are grandmas with grandchildren, and great grandchildren.
Recognized are the college women, career women, working moms, stay at home moms, and retired women. Even the women serving missions far away from home and women serving their friends and family nearby.
All of these wonderful ladies testify of Jesus Christ and share how they strengthen their relationship with Him.
This quote from President Spencer W. Kimball inspired this endeavor to share a brief look into the lives of faithful, wonderful women.
Finally, my dear sisters, may I suggest to you something that has not been said before or at least in quite this way. Much of the major growth that is coming to the Church in the last days will come because many of the good women of the world (in whom there is often such an inner sense of spirituality) will be drawn to the Church in large numbers. This will happen to the degree that the women of the Church reflect righteousness and articulateness in their lives and to the degree that the women of the Church are seen as distinct and different—in happy ways—from the women of the world.
Among the real heroines in the world who will come into the Church are women who are more concerned with being righteous than with being selfish. These real heroines have true humility, which places a higher value on integrity than on visibility
Thus it will be that female exemplars of the Church will be a significant force in both the numerical and the spiritual growth of the Church in the last days.
I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I have moved 64 times and have not tired of experiencing this beautiful earth! I love the people, languages, histories/anthropologies, & especially religious cultures of the world. My life long passion is the study & searching out of religious symbolism, specifically related to ancient & modern temples. My husband Anthony and I love our bulldog Stig, adventures, traveling, movies, motorcycling, and time with friends and family.
