Friend Magazine, 2014/01 Jan

Ezra Taft Benson did many chores on his family farm. Because he loved farming, he earned an advanced degree in agricultural economics and eventually served as secretary of agriculture for the United States in Washington, D.C. President Benson loved the Book of Mormon and encouraged Church members to study it as families and as individuals.
