I cannot begin to tell you how good of a book this is!! Every mother, every woman, even every man should read this. It definitely is directed to women but there are so many principles that apply to everyone.
Maybe I think this is the greatest book simply because it hits my weaknesses on the head. I have always believed in Christ and I have always known that He loves each and every one of us personally but I have come to realize (after a lot of trial and error) that basically what it boils down to is that I know these things...but I only believe they work for other people. I do know that God loves me but, again, when it comes down to it I don't believe in it. Does that make sense?
This book has really opened my eyes to how much I try to do on my own, without letting Christ in.
I don't know how to adequately express how much this book has touched me and how big of a difference it has made in my heart. I now know AND believe that God loves me. And that has made a world of a difference. I really feel Him in my heart...imperfections and all.
I cannot recommend this book enough!
I am so thankful for my Savior and for His love. I have gone a long time without feeling His love simply because I didn't know how to let Him love me. I am thankful for the peace that I have felt over the past few weeks while reading this book. I have started waking up before my boys in order to get my scripture reading done, and that combined with the new knowledge that I have that every promise in the scriptures applies to me has opened up a whole new world for me. I am thankful that Heavenly Father and our Savior, who are perfect beings care about me and my life. I love that washing dishes, cleaning bathrooms, changing diapers, reading books to my kids, exercising- all of that matters to the Lord!
I KNOW that God lives. I believe it. I believe He loves me personally. And that has made all the difference!
(There is a lot about charity, acceptance of other people, diversity, love, friendship, fellowship and more that I also can't get enough of. I have never considered myself a judgmental person, I try really hard to be friendly to everyone and to be accepting but this book has taught me that I have leaps and bounds to go in that department. I am so grateful for this awaking and for the opportunity to go forward and love everyone more and be less critical, and more accepting of our differences.)
