July 2020 Books

July is a great time to celebrate the United States of America and all those who helped to discover it, found it, preserve it, and make it a place where religious freedom is preserved and families can thrive. It’s also a time when we simply enjoy summer and getting together with extended family! Towards the end of July we celebrate Pioneer Day, or the day that the pioneers of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints arrived in the Salt Lake Valley in 1847. We celebrate our pioneer heritage and the sacrifices that our forefathers made to preserve our religious freedom.
