He was raised devout Catholics, married a former nun, and joined the LDS Church 26 years ago. In this episode Bishop Shuster briefly shares his conversion story and what inspired him to write books. He also shares what his experience was like as a young elders quorum president and his progression through church leadership.

Leadership Principles

  1. You can’t teach what you don’t know, and you can’t lead where you won’t go.
  2. Give the Lord His time first. (Matt 6:33)
  3. Where much is given, much is required. (Doctrine & Covenants 82:3)
