I was drawn to this book because I was interested in reading about the First Presidency and Quorum of the Twelve, plus LaVell Edwards, Doug Wright, Bruce R. McConkie and many other notables. (There are at least 100 stories, maybe more.) However, after I read the stories from those people that I was familiar with, I then started reading stories from some of the other "not-so-famous" fathers, and was pleasantly surprised to find so many amazing stories. One guy would willingly endure being a Japan ...more

After reading Life Lessons from Mothers of Faith, I was a little disappointed. The previous book is written primarily by the children of each mother. A good portion of Father's is contexted phrasing regarding prominent leader fathers. I did love Mike Winder's essay and that was worth the rest of the book right there. Also I did quite enjoy Viriginia Pearce's relaying the Mountain Meadows experience she had with her father. These were truly beautiful but the Mother's book had such diversity right ...more

Really enjoyed reading about LDS people and how their fathers had an affect on their lives. It gave me a great chance to think back on how my father influenced me in everything that I do. The best part is my dad is still around and I enjoy talking to him and learning from him still. I even feel lucky enough to have a father-in-law that teaches and influences my life as well.

I am sure that there are any number of people that Winder and Toyn could have asked to write down something regarding fathe

Finished the book this morning. What a great collection of honest down to life stories about fathers and father figures. The stories were so varied and honest. There were stories you could tell that the author had to really work hard to figure out what made the person they were writing about so important to them. In those instances, I could tell that it the experience of writing about that person was a journey in itself was a healing and positive experience. There were stories written by famous ...more

Skimmed thru it because it was due back at the library. 1/3 of the people I didn't know. It seemed to be a who's who of LDS Utah Dads. I enjoyed reading about the men I knew of...
There is one poem in there that I absolutely love and plan on sharing with my father this year for Father's Day. It's by Janice Kapp Perry and is called "My Father's Faith."

I thoroughly enjoyed these short 2-4 page narratives about outstanding fathers. It caused me to think of my father and his contribution to my life and is an encouragement for me to be a good influence on my children. I highly recommend this to anyone.

I really enjoyed this book. I asked for this for my birthday and got it for Christmas some 3 weeks later. I enjoyed the diversity of experiences that are in the book.

I'm reading this one to my mom. She's loving it. I'm certainly liking it more than I expected. There are actually some pretty good stories.

Very touching, inspiring. Made me think of what lessons my own father taught me. Well worth the time to read.

This book is huge but really good! I would buy it.

I wasn't able to finish this book all the way. But I rounded up, it would've been closer to 3.5. I appreciated the stories that were newly written and not taken from other sources and pieced together. There are a couple of stories that were very well written where the authors shared real life, personal experiences with their fathers or Father figure. These were some unforgettable stories.
