Everyone can benefit from an inspirational story and powerful example.
That's the idea behind "Men of Courage, Men of Faith: Inspired Stories from Church History," a CD that consists of a collection of stories about Mormon pioneer men who performed remarkable deeds.
"In keeping with the Spirit of Elijah, this project is an effort to turn our hearts to our pioneer fathers and remember their faith and courage, for in remembering their great works we may be inspired to try harder," Rawson said on the CD insert.
Among those featured during the presentation are Ephraim Hanks, Erastus Snow, James G. Willie, William H. Kimball, Solomon Mack, Daniel W. Jones, Redick Allred and Lucius Scoville.
The stories are shared in great detail, depicting trials and triumphs while teaching important lessons and principles.
Rawson was a producer and host of the "Joseph Smith Papers" series. He has also helped to produce the "History of the Saints" television documentary series.
