Which statue should represent Utah at the nation's Capitol building: Philo T. Farnsworth or Martha Hughes Cannon? KSL NewsRadio's Doug Wright talks to Melissa Coy, Historical Collections Curator for the Utah Historical Society, about the contributions of each.

Dr. Adam Miller talks to KSL NewsRadio's Doug Wright about his book, Letters to a Young Mormon. This book is composed as a series of letters. The letters are meant for a young Mormon who is familiar with Mormon life but green in their faith. I imagined myself writing these letters to my own children and struggled, in relation to how we talk about things at church, to say my own piece about what it means to be as a Mormon free, ambitious, repentant, faithful, informed, prayerful, selfless, hungry, chaste, and sealed.

The letters do little to benchmark a Mormon orthodoxy. That work belongs to those called to it. Here, my work is personal. I mean only to address the real beauty and real costs of trying to live a Mormon life. And I hope only to show something of what it means to live in a way that refuses to abandon either life or Mormonism.
