IN THE ANNALS OF MORMON HISTORY only a few women's voices are heard. These few have been repeatedly used in lesson and lecture as special examples of strength. They wore strong and talented, often heroic,always favored. But many persons of less renown also merit attention. These individuals, too, gave strength to their contemporaries. They at- tended their meetings, cared for large families, and labored in their yards, homes, and orchards. Often they worked under unbearable stress far from the center of the church—far from adulation. But they toiled on wherever they wore sent with their families, these patient, obedient women, and carried their burden bravely with unshakeable faith in their eternal calling.
