I’m super excited to introduce you all to my fabulous husband. I received this book, and he was super excited to read it, and was more on top of that than I was, so he said he’d be willing to “guest post” today and introduce this awesome book that he read.
I love reading books, well I should correct that statement just a little, I love listening to books. In this case an audiobook didn’t exist and I actually read the book, which turned out to be a good experience for me. Deseret Book sent me the new book by President Boyd K. Packer, A Refuge from the Storm, and asked me to do a review of the book. When I first saw the title of the book I felt that it would be a good choice for me, my life feels like a raging storm and getting some refuge would be a welcome change. The book covers three aspects of life as a Latter-day Saint, the priesthood, the family, and the church.
First, it goes into great depth about what the priesthood is and how it can benefit the lives of those who hold it and those who have access to it. It gives clear and pertinent information about how the priesthood is organized and why it is so important in our lives.
Second, it explains how the family is an integral part of our lives. It covers the importance of being good parents and how parents shape the lives of their children. it also reminded us about why children are so important and why we need to pay attention to them. It counseled us not to fear, but to have faith that things will work out for the best with our families.
Finally, it talked about the role that the church plays in our lives. It reminded us about how the church is set up as a place of refuge and that the standards are high to help us to be the best that we can be. It gave insight into much of what the church is doing and how they hope to get as much doctrine and information into the hands the members as they can.
I feel that this book is a great book to help strengthen your testimony. It gives insight into 3 very important topics that I know at least for me helped me to put some of the pieces of the great puzzle of life together. I came into the book seeking for direction in my busy life, and left with a cleared picture of my purpose in this life. I would totally recommend this book.
