Why I m a Mormon is a collection of fascinating, individual journeys of faith by dozens of stalwart, modern Mormons some prominent, others less well-known but no less impressive. Contributors share brief reflections on how their feelings about the gospel and their involvement in the Church have shaped and enriched their lives. These vignettes are from Latter-day Saints who are faithfully and successfully navigating these troubled, secular, sometimes dark and temptation laden times. The book includes expressions from successful business leaders, entertainers, sports figures, authors, and many others, including Jane Clayson Johnson, David Archuleta, Steve Young, Larry Gelwix, Brandon Mull, Anne Perry, Dave Rose, Stephanie Nielson, and Alex Boyé. While other Latter-day Saints are the primary audience for this book, the essays in this book should resonate with all people of faith. Given the increasing national and international attention focused on The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, this book will provide a window into the modern-day Church for journalists and others interested in the phenomenon of the rise of Mormonism.
