"As we put our faith and trust to work, hope is born. Hope grows out of faith and gives meaning and purpose to all that we do. It can even give us the peaceful assurance we need to live happily in a world that is ripe with iniquity, calamity, and injustice."

--M. Russell Ballard, "The Joy of Hope Fulfilled", Ensign, Nov 1992, 31

Dramatized History of George Albert Smith
Brian and Petrea Kelly

When George Albert Smith became the president of the Church in 1945, he remarked that he had seen many “firsts” during his lifetime—from the first bicycle, telephone, and radio in Salt Lake valley to the first airplane. His life was filled with a variety of learning experiences. He survived many childhood accidents and illnesses and had his life miraculously preserved on numerous occasions while serving in the Southern States Mission. He once saved the Tabernacle from burning down when the roof caught on fire, the result of a large, paper hot air balloon. His political involvement and later prominence as a Church leader gave him access to many important people, including nine presidents of the United States.

This wide range of stories and more will give you a greater understanding of the man who became the eighth president of the Church. Taken from painstaking research by Brian and Petrea Kelly, the Dramatized History of George Albert Smith is a valuable resource for the Teachings of Presidents of the Church curriculum for the new year.
