SALT LAKE CITY — The Church History Library's Men and Women of Faith lecture is titled "'I Loved the Work': Stories of Faith from the Life of Ann Cannon Woodbury" and will be at 7 p.m. on Aug. 9 in the Church Office Building main auditorium. The event is free and open to the public.

Kim Woodbury will share stories from the life of her third-great grandmother Ann Cannon Woodbury, whose family helped settle St. George and is a sister of Apostle George Q. Cannon. Ann converted to the gospel when she was 8 years old and never wavered in her testimony. She and her husband, Orin Woodbury, were called to help settle St. George, Utah.

Kim Woodbury is a third great granddaughter of Ann Cannon Woodbury. She works for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints as a public affairs area relations manager. Previously, she worked in marketing and communications for the Family History and Church History Departments.

This event is part of the 2012 Men and Women of Faith lecture series. Lectures are held monthly in the Church Office Building on 50 E. North Temple Street.
