Wain Myers thought he knew what he believed, but after a revelation from God, something had to change. This former Baptist preacher tells his fascinating story of following the Spirit’s voice and ultimately becoming a convert in the LDS church. This remarkable true story will inspire you to follow your own promptings and share truth wherever you find it.


My Review

FROM BAPTIST PREACHER TO MORMON TEACHER was such an enjoyable read! Full of real, down-to-earth dialogue from this man who joined The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints amidst doubts and un-supportive family, with a background as a preacher in other denominations. The basis of his decision to join the church? "I know it's true because God told me it's true." His simple, but strong, faith, desire to learn and understand, his humility, and his love for others was touching and heartfelt. There was no shying away from issues or from the weaknesses of men. Everything is presented in such a frank way that it immediately builds a connection with the reader.  With humor, struggles, family, and faith, Wain tells his story. It's one that I feel blessed to have read.

I would recommend FROM BAPTIST PREACHER TO MORMON TEACHER to those who enjoy LDS nonfiction and stories of faith.
