BLOG TOUR w/ GIVEAWAY: Sweet is the Work by Breanna Olaveson


Young Women serving as missionaries today are carrying on a noble legacy of faith and dedication that extends back to the early days of the Church. But who were the brave women who paved the way for modern-day sister missionaries? In Sweet Is the Work, author Breanna Olaveson delves into a previously unexplored history that demonstrates the unique ability of women to carry out the errand of angels. Discover the powerful experiences of twelve of the earliest sister missionaries, from the first single proselytizing women in 1898 to some of the well-known sisters in Church history who were themselves pioneering missionaries. The women highlighted in this volume demonstrate the valiant and noble history of sister missionaries in an account that is sure to inspire readers to boldly go forth to share the truths of the gospel.


Women have had a very important place in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (LDS or Mormon Church) since the very beginning.  And not just serving as wives and mothers, as vital a role as that is.  This book focuses on the efforts of the first lady missionaries.  I loved reading about the hard work that these ladies put in, helping the church grow, and demonstrating to the world that Mormon women are not mistreated by the church and its leaders.  I also found it fascinating to learn that lady missionaries were requested by leaders in various missions around the world because they could go places and do things that they men could not.  This book may not be long but it packs a punch as it tells stories and experiences of these lady's who gave all they had to the Lord.
