SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH -- Throughout his life, President James E.
Faust, a counselor in the First Presidency of The Church of Jesus
Christ of Latter-day Saings, says he has been blessed "with countless
experiences that, on reflection, have helped me to better understand
the Lord's plan for His children, as well as my need to live a life
that is in complete harmony with His teachings."
Now, many of those experiences are recounted in "Stories From My
Life" (Deseret Book, $15.95), President Faust's accounts of the
principles used in his many talks given throughout the world.

principles, President Faust's warmth and humble approach to life are
illustrated in these familiar and famous stories. Among those told in
"Stories From My Life" are his experience shepherding a lost lamb,
and a lesson in forgiveness when a fellow lawyer apparently reneged
on a promise. Readers will come to love President Faust's remarkable
character through these touching and unforgettable stories and
lessons from the life of a servant of the Lord.
