Publisher Description

String Of Pearls, Book Two of the Faith-Promoting Series is a collection of missionary experiences, revelation, and beginnings. The first section of this book is the account of an emigrant who lived among the Ponca Indians, a tribe east of the Mississippi in the Ohio River Valley. W.C.S. describes hardships that greatly increased his faith since he looked on his experience as an "Indian Mission". 


Other accounts include the missionary experiences of Jedediah M. Grant, a future member of the Church's First Presidency, President John Taylor's journey across the plains and an unusual prophecy that was received, and the commencement of missionary work in Ireland, with experiences of Matthias Cowley, David W. Patten and several other early Saints. The book ends with the poem “Joseph Smith’s First Prayer”, the poem upon which the LDS hymn is based.


The Faith-Promoting Series includes 17 books which were largely written by Deseret Book founder George Q. Cannon, but also include books by Wilford Woodruff and other early LDS leaders.
