is a master story teller, gifted public speaker, and popular radio and television personality. He is known for being the voice of the inspirational stories on the Sounds of Sunday program and for being the writer, producer and host of KJZZ Television's The Joseph Smith Papers and KSL Television's History of the Saints TV series. He currently is part of the production team for the new History of the Saints television documentary series.
Rawson, a teacher by profession, is also
an audience pleaser as a speaker, but he grew up on a ranch. His love of the outdoors carries to this day. It isn't unusual to find him outside in his free time, running, bird watching, hiking, or just taking a deep breath. He writes and researches every story he delivers. He is a man with a great gift that he shares so warmly and generously with his audience.
Like others who have heard Glenn Rawson speak, you will wish that he could continue for a much longer time. Be sure to come early.
Blaine M. Yorgason
is the author or co-author of more than seventy publications, including such best sellers as Charlie’s Monument, The Windwalker— also an acclaimed feature film--Chester, I Love You, released by Disney Productions as Thanksgiving Promise. He holds a master’s degree in history with a specialization in the American West.
In his most recent book, All That was Promised, he presents the inspiring true story of the enormous sacrifice and prodigious labor performed by the pioneers who came to establish homes in southern Utah and then gave all they had physically, financially, and spiritually to construct the magnificent St. George Latter-day Saint Temple. His gift as a story writer allows his readers to vicariously experience every phrase of the six chal-lenging years of construction.
Plan to come and hear this great historian and storyteller share his gift of gathering life's stories of our ancestors and the value of sharing them.
