This great quote by L. Tom Perry was recently tweeted on P. Diddy’s Twitter account (@iamdiddy):
“One of the greatest weaknesses in most of us is our lack of faith in ourselves.” (From a talk, “Be the Best of Whatever You Are“)
For P. Diddy fans out there who may be wondering who L. Tom Perry is, see here for more information about him. Also, a recent post on our site gives a personal glimpse into the life of L. Tom Perry and his family. The Christmas essay was written by his son, Lee Tom Perry.
You’ll see that L. Tom Perry loves baseball and has a loving family.
He also has experienced difficult times…he lost his first wife in 1974 (and a daughter as well, when she was 33). They both died of cancer. The essay also shows how family traditions and the love in their family has helped them continue on in spite of these difficulties.
