Standout Saints by Sierra Wilson - Illustrated by Emily Shay Tueller - Spotlight/Giveaway


Standout Saints: Church History Heroes from Around the World

Author: Sierra Wilson

Illustrator: Emily Shay Tueller

Hardcover: 96 pages

Book description

From prophets to pioneers, from songwriters to scientists, Standout Saints: Church History Heroes from Around the World presents the fascinating true stories of twenty women and twenty men from Church history. Each one-page biography describes impressive achievements and shares stories of great faith. Readers will encounter well-known and beloved Saints such as Joseph Smith and Eliza R. Snow along with lesser-known heroes from around the world such as Hu Wei-I, who miraculously translated the Book of Mormon into Chinese, and Mere Mete Whaanga, a prominent Maori woman who helped the Church spread into New Zealand. In addition, Standout Saints includes uplifting quotes, a Church history timeline, and resources for further study.

The courage and faith of these Saints made them stand out from the world, and this educational and inspiring book helps young readers know that they too can stand out.

  1. St. Agnes is my Church history hero.

  2. Miles Romney is mine - I learned about him while helping a friend with family history (her relation, not even mine) but he was an architect for many of the early temples and other structures.
