Ezra Taft Benson Exhibit

13th President: 1985–1994

An early career in agriculture prepared Ezra Taft Benson to, as an Apostle, lead Church relief efforts in Europe after WWII and build relationships for the Church. As prophet, he challenged Latter-day Saints to flood the earth with the Book of Mormon, to heed its warnings against pride, and to let Christ transform their inner natures. 

Heber J. Grant Exhibit

7th President: 1918–1945

Raised by his widowed mother and her Relief Society sisters, Heber J. Grant came to embody the goodwill, strong work ethic, and personal discipline Latter-day Saints are known for today. He helped the saints love the commandments and participate more fully in the Lord's work. 

Gordon B. Hinckley Exhibit

15th President: 1995–2008

Gordon B. Hinckley shared both his optimism and strong sense of accountability with Latter-day Saints. He worked to bring temples to the saints, bring the Church out of obscurity, and strengthen the youth.
