Dust jacket is a bit torn and worn around the edges and corners. Pages tight and clean. ; Hal Boyle's Law is that a man's life expands to fill the space available to it, and then overflows all over the place. It is true of his desk, his filing system, his lunch hour, and his friends. It was once true of Hal Boyle himself before his boss bet him $100 he couldn't get down to 180 pounds. So enter as a guest of Boyle. You will meet, for instance, October, Santa Claus, a cab driver named Max who had a wife named Sarah and loves her still, a restauranteur named Toots Shor who collects the hangovers of his clients, a boy named Boyle who fell in love with his teacher and discovered she was married, a Japanese houseboy who found Boyle alone and wouldn't leave him that way. You will meet Dad and Mama and Neil, and Ernie Pyle and GIs from the reporting of three wars that won Boyle the Pulitzer Prize he never mentions. You will share some of the 57 years, and dismay of growing old, the sweet realizeaion you'll never really grow old. ; 6.25" x 9.25"; 317 pages,

5 LIFE OF JOSEPH SMITH THE PROPHET

Cannon, George Q.New, Covenant Communications, Inc., 2005, American Fork, UT

Paperback



Brand New! ; Brand New! ; The Life of Joseph Smith the Prophet is much more than a detailed biography of the events of Joseph Smith’s life; it’s also what Apostle George Q. Cannon thought and felt about the life of Joseph Smith—a man he knew well. The author’s passionate writing style combined with interviews from friends and associates of the Prophet and excerpts from historical documents create an insightful and compelling portrait of the first Prophet of this dispensation. After describing the martyrdom of the Prophet, Cannon’s closing tribute to Joseph reads: “The enemies of truth were sure that they had now destroyed the work. And yet it lives, greater and stronger after the lapse of years! It is indestructible for it is the work of God. And knowing that it is the eternal work of God, we know that Joseph Smith, who established it, was a Prophet holy and pure. ”A timeless classic in Church history, The Life of Joseph Smith the Prophet belongs in every LDS family’s library; 6" x 9"; 490 pages; 1598110640,

My Mennonite Mother Led Me to the Gospel, Clark, Marcia Kauffman
11 My Mennonite Mother Led Me to the Gospel

Clark, Marcia KauffmanNew, Digital Legend Press, 2011, 

Paperback



Brand new softcover book! ++; Christmas Carol Miller Kauffman's life was a song of faith and devotion to Him on whose birthday she was born and whose name appears in her own. Her nine full-length novels and dozens of short stories resonate with the life struggles of real people whose lives she immortalized through the grace of her gifted pen. The story she never told, however, was the "carol" of her own life. Through all the struggles, triumphs, and challenges of Carol's life, the reader begins to learn from where she drew the spiritual depth to inspire and edify Christians around the world for more than eighty years. Perhaps most remarkable of all, is how this woman's saintly life prepared and led her daughter Marcia to receive the Restored Gospel of Jesus Christ; 6" x 9"; 279 pages,

Driven - An Autobiography, Miller, Larry H.
13 Driven - An Autobiography

Miller, Larry H.New in New Dust Jacket, Deseret Book, 2010, Salt Lake City, UT

Paperback



Brand new book! ; Brand new book! ; When he was sixteen years old, Larry Miller came home one summer night to find all his possessions sitting in three bags on the porch of his darkened house. The door was locked. From those troubled and humble beginnings rose a man whose influence has touched, according to reliable pollsters, more than 99 percent of the population of Utah as well as myriads of people worldwide. Seven months before Miller passed away, he began working with Doug Robinson on this biography. Written in first person, the book talks about the many facets of Larry’s life and legacy and speaks candidly about the people and experiences that influenced him. It doesn’t just tell Larry Miller’s story, it shares lessons—painful as well as joyful lessons—he has learned from his experiences. This fascinating and inspiring biography includes: * A moving foreword by Utah Jazz great John Stockton. * An epilogue written by Gail Miller, Larry’s wife. * Numerous photographs. * A firsthand look at the incredible breadth of Larry Miller’s work and contributions—in business, in sports, in the arts, in his support of the Joseph Smith Papers Project, as well as his personal humanitarian service.* A full section addressing the question Larry was most often asked: “How’d you do it? ”; 6" x 9"; 343 pages; 9781609089160,
