Page Count: 377
 
About:
  
This groundbreaking series tells the stories of women in the history of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints whose lives of faith and dedication deserve emulation. Each chapter recounts a woman's trials, triumphs, and testimony, often in her own words.
Volume 3 features women born between 1846 and 1870 and includes well-known women and other publicly unknown. Their lifespans range from the era of the Mormon pioneers to the beginnings of the space age. Al these women knew pioneer life firsthand. Many also experienced the gradual transition to modern life and the expansion of the Church to far-flung parts of the globe.
Here you will encounter such diverse women as Martha Hughes Cannon, the first female state senator in the United States; Tsune Ishida Nachie, and early Japanese convert and dedicated missionary; Ellis Reynolds Shipp, a medical doctor in early Utah; Mere Mete Whaanga, a leading Maori who migrated to Utah; general Relief Society presidents Sarah Louisa Yates Robison and Clarissa Smith Williams; and Cohn Shoshonitz Zundel, a Shoshone women who lived nearly fifty years as a widow. 

The faith these women exhibited as they rejoiced in blessings and dealt with struggles provides a model for us in facing our own challenges as we strive to build lives of faith today. 

Additional biographies of Latter-day Saint women of faith born between 1846 and 1870 are available in the eBook edition of this volume.

In my opinion (Emilee):

I was pleasantly surprised how quickly I enjoyed reading the stories of faithful women born between 1846 and 1870. The only problem I had was when I got hooked to an individual and grew to understand and love her, the chapter ended. But, each individual woman had their own story to tell which was exciting

I was especially inspired by Maud May Babcock's story of how she changed a man's life by her example. We can touch lives by being an example and showing love. Although we may not change a person, we can be their inspiration through a simple act of service.

What is our role as women and mothers? Can we have an influence for good? Absolutely! We are the nurturers and we have the power to bind our homes in love.  Through the examples of these marvelous women, I know we can be like them as we continue to be faithful. We will have many trials and tribulations in our life but we can get through them and become stronger.
