We all have stories to tell. And some of our most life changing experiences happen with our mothers, often during everyday moments. Life Lessons From Mothers of Faith will delight you with touching true stories that highlight the almost magical way faithful mothers teach powerful lessons. These inspirational tributes from the children of Mormon moms from all walks of life underscore the sacred bond between mother and child.

Yet despite all the accolades our mothers deserve, this book is not about extolling only the virtues of motherhood, and ignoring real mothers who struggle with issues of frustration, doubt, guilt, and dispair. As one reviewer noted:


"Mothers of Faith finds the delicate balance between paying tribute to those whose behind-the-scenes contributions are so often taken for granted and idolizing the “strange, angelic caricature” placed on the impossibly high pedestal. While some of the individual entries may veer more in one direction or the other, the overall impression is that of real women doing their personal best for their families despite – or sometimes because of – their imperfections."


These simple yet influential tales that will have you laughing, crying, and thinking. Rich with unforgettable recollections, engaging anecdotes, and timeless wisdom, these are stories mothers can truly relate to, gain insight from, and feel honored by—unique tributes that remind latter-day moms that their children are actually paying attention.

Featuring Latter-day Saint sons’ and daughters’ recollections of their famous and not-so-famous mothers, this engaging celebration of unforgettable moments and immeasurable gifts will show any mother how it’s often the little things that make the biggest difference in a child’s life. Mothers of Faith contains more than seventy inspiring tributes, including stories from or about:

Julie B. Beck, Steve Young, Silvia H. Allred, Jim Matheson, Ann Romney, Ruth Hale, Jason Chaffetz, Janice Kapp Perry, Doug Wright, Liz Lemon Swindle, J. Willard Marriott, Jr., Harry Reid, Sharlene Wells Hawkes, Gary Herbert, Greg Olsen, Susan Easton Black, Jimmer Fredette, and dozens more. See the entire list of contributors here
