Series Overview

Women of Faith in the Latter Days is a seven-volume series with each volume containing approximately 35 ten-page chapters on women from all walks of life. Because one purpose of the series is to popularize the women in the volumes and their life experiences, the intended audience is a general readership, with interest in Latter-day Saint history and women. The series will be published by Deseret Book and marketed widely to that audience.

The first volume in the series was published in December 2011 with subsequent volumes to follow at periodic intervals. The first seven volumes will be as follows:

Volume 1

Women born before or in 1820

Although approximately half the people in the history of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints have been women, their lives of faith and dedication are just beginning to receive the attention they merit. This groundbreaking series recounts the stories of women in Church history, often in their own words, as they share their trials, triumphs, and testimonies.

Volume 2

Women born between 1821 and 1845

This volume, the second in a series of seven, features women born between 1821 and 1845 and presents both well-known women and previously obscure ones whose lives of faith also deserve emulation. They lived in an age when Latter-day Saint leaders emphasized the literal gathering of Israel, and, for that reason, the stories you will find here include accounts of the trek to Utah and the settlement of new communities in the West.

Volume 3

Women born between 1846 and 1870

Volume 3 features women born between 1846 and 1870 and includes well-known women and others publicly unknown. Their lifespans range from the era of the Mormon pioneers to the beginnings of the space age. All 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.
