REVIEW

The Book of Mormon has some great heroines in it as well as heroes, but it is easy to forget this since a number of them are not mentioned by name.  But the role these women played in there world was no less important than the men and truly inspiring.  One of my favorite female stories in the Book of Mormon revolves around the power of mothers to influence their children for good.  The mothers of Helaman's stripling warriors lead their sons down a righteous path that led to their survival in the face of incredible odds.  And the other women mentioned in the book are just as inspiring and a powerful reminder of the good that women can do.  Each story is briefly summarized and then a choice made by the woman or women involved is presented for discussion.  The decision made is then presented on the following page.  Not only is the book an inspiring one but arranged neatly for teaching during family home evenings and other times. Recommended.
