Title Tribute
Description Pioneering is never an easy task, whether it is building a new empire or mark-ing new trails, following rugged paths as our forefathers did, or encouraging the preservation of the history of this precious heritage. Few have the ability to inspire and direct, to persevere. Some have the in- sight and understanding to know how to produce, beautifully and well, those things that endure. Some have the stamina and the courage to stand for correct principles and practices, to make choices and decisions that affect for good the lives of others. Some put others above self, letting not the right hand know what the left hand does, counseling with the Lord in all their doings. In a time when women are reaching for more freedom, for new power, some have sought for ways to serve, to be a righteous influence in the lives of others. Some have taken to heart the words of Paul, "Stir up the gift of God within thee." Such a person is Linnie M. Findlay, who, with this in mind, suggested that a book be published to "capture some of the fast disappearing stories of the early period of Sanpete history." Her idea was greeted with the statement, "Fine, you be the chairman." As Chairman and Editor of the Saga of the Sanpitch for the past five years. Sister Findlay has had a single minded devotion to this project. With a keen awareness of what counts in human values, hers has been a "voice with something to say, and individual voice of strength." She has pressed on in spite of obstacles, dedicating earnest effort to a labor of publishing a book that has reached the hearts and lives of people all over America and in a number of foreign countries, a book that has given opportunity and encouragement to many who have a strong desire to write...to preserve the stories of a heritage as "high as mountains and serene as valleys." To a pioneer in a new writing venture, to one who magnifies the testimony instilled by worthy ancestors, to one who has dedicated so willingly countless hours of time and tireless effort and inspiration, we express our love and appre-ciation to Linnie M. Findlay, pioneer of the Saga of the Sanpitch. TRIBUTE
