Ray, the faith of my fathers (and perhaps more importantly my mothers) on my mother's side is LDS. While I'm no longer Mormon myself, I am very attached to rich sense of history I get when I think of my grandparents and great grandparents, etc. The history on this side of my family is so accessible through history and through the geneology work I have access to. I am in awe of my ancestors who crossed the plain with handcarts in search of the religious freedom and tolerance they couldn't find further east. The amount of work they did to irrigate the area to grow crops is staggering to me. Another branch of the family used their coal mining knowledge from England to help run some of the first coal mines in Coalville. (OK, when I drive by Coalville, my thoughts on that aren't *entirely* proud. Such beatiful country in Utah, and so much of it laid waste.) The faith showed by my aunts and uncles and the way their faith permeates their life remains an inspiration to me.

The LDS faith is so very rich in history and inspiration.
