    “God Made Me Deaf”

    Accounts from Deaf Latter-day Saints, 1846-1916

    Anne Leahy


    About the Lecture

    Anne Leahy presents accounts of deaf members of the Church.

    Before the first branch for the deaf was organized in 1917 in Ogden, Utah, deaf Latter-day Saints maintained strong faith in the gospel, despite little or no opportunity to magnify their Church membership. Little-known first-person accounts from these Latter-day Saints, as well as reported accounts, record their declarations of faith.
