Vaughn J Featherstone (born March 23, 1931) is an emeritus member of the First Quorum of the Seventy of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church). He has also been the president of the Logan Utah Temple in Logan, Utah.

Featherstone was born in Stockton, Tooele County, Utah.[1] He grew up in a home with an abusive alcoholic father. His parents divorced when he was growing up. Because of this background he gained an understanding of the problems in homes and has been a help and champion of youth. Due to his family's economic circumstances, he never had the opportunity to go to college.

Featherstone spent several years in the Young Men general presidency of the church, and has served in area presidencies in the Philippines and Pacific. He has written many books, mostly to the youth of the church, and much about charity and the life of Jesus and Joseph Smith, Jr.. He was called to the Presiding Bishopric in 1972; before that he was a stake president and served on missionary committees. He was head trainer for Albertsons supermarket.

Featherstone wanted to go on a mission. However, due to the Korean War and the one-missionary-per-ward policy, he did not get that opportunity. He married Marilyn Miner at 19. Following four years in the Presiding Bishopric, he served as a member of the First Quorom of the Seventy and president of the Texas San Antonio Mission of the church.
