Latter-Day Saint Heroes and Heroines
Each member of the LDS Church brings a story to the waters of baptism. Some were born in the covenant. Others were converted, sometimes amid great opposition. Those who stand faithful in their testimonies bring strength to their witness of the truth of the gospel. In Heroes and Heroines, Marlene Bateman Sullivan chronicles stories of ordinary people who made extraordinary sacrifices for the gospel. From around the world and from different languages and cultures come powerful stories of those who gave up anything and everything for what they know to be true. From the convert in the Samoan Islands who must choose between her faith and her home to the veteran Saint facing martyrdom, these stories bear powerful and moving witnesses of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Let these courageous Saints strengthen your appreciation of the gospel as their actions bear testimony of the truth and infinite worth of their religion.
