Chieko Okazaki's messages of faith
»10 items «
A landmark figure in the leadership of women and young women in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Sister Chieko Okazaki also had broad appeal as a writer and speaker. Her 13 books and tapes collectively sold around half a million copies, according to Gail Halladay, managing director of marketing for her publisher, Deseret Book. Sister Okazaki was the first minority to serve on the church’s Young Women’s Board, in 1961. She also was the first minority woman to serve in a general presidency, when she served as a counselor to President Elaine L. Jack in the general Relief Society presidency from 1990 to '97. Her positive messages of hope and faith made her a popular speaker, and Deseret Book sold four tapes of talks she gave, beginning in 1992. She soon became a successful author, too. The first of her books, "Lighten Up!," was published in 1993. Here is a look at her nine books and her tapes and talks. Read more about her 'power of goodness' here
