Hear Her Story
THE POWER OF STORIES
Stories are powerful. They allow us to see the world through someone else’s eyes and get a sense of the events that have shaped them. They challenge our perceptions, appeal for more compassion and connect us.
In this gallery, you will find our first two series of stories of Latter-day Saint women in Europe. First, our series of living women is derived from interviews conducted in 2021 and 2022. Second, our series of historical women is based on ongoing historical research. Simply explore the map below and click on a marker to access a woman’s story, or scroll down and find all our stories in the gallery below the map. (TO BE EDITED)
All women, living or past, portray powerful stories of faith, dialogue, inclusion, courage and learning. We invite you to get to know these women through their accounts, let their stories touch you, and use and share them to empower, educate and inspire. We invite you to Hear Her Story.
Object of My Affection
The Object of My Affection series voices the extraordinary and ordinary Latter-day Saint women across Europe. Each storyteller was asked to choose an object that connects to their story. From a Portuguese mother with four watches to a British-Nigerian non-profit leader with a football, we invite you to click below and explore the stories of these women—and their objects—and follow along as they share stories of wisdom, courage, loss, love and faith.
Our Invisible Stories series gives voice to women from the past.
