Thank you, Laurie, for taking time to review this book. Your opinion is highly valued. I especially appreciate the paragraph that refers to Elder Bednar as quoted below:

True Miracles With Genealogy arrives on shelves at a perfect moment, following Elder David Bednar’s October Conference talk about involving our youth in this critical, divine work. If making research personal is the key to successfully introducing youth to family history and genealogy, then the tender stories in Bradshaw’s books would provide a perfect catalyst in helping them catch the vision of who they are laboring to serve.
