Through His Eyes Review and Giveaway...

As anyone who has ever cleaned out a closet or a basement can attest, clutter is a reality of life. And it's not just a physical reality. Our minds can become cluttered too, filled with beliefs about everything from our relationship with God to our feelings about our bodies to our housekeeping methods.

Some of these beliefs are what author Virginia H. Pearce calls "Truths with a capital T." They are eternal and will always be true, whether anyone believes them or not. The confusion in our lives comes because mixed in with those Truths are other beliefs, some of which might be useful but some of which are just plain harmful.

In this insightful new book, Sister Pearce invites us to become "inquirers after truth," to examine all of our beliefs and try our best to see them in the light of the Truths we know to be eternal. By doing so, we can discard the half-truths and lies that may be hindering our progress. Our lives can be filled with greater happiness than we ever thought possible as we learn to see them Through His Eyes.
    Contents: Acknowledgments
  • The Closet
  • A Useful Map
  • We All Believe - Something
  • True, true, and Not-true-at-all
  • Getting Personal
  • Finding and Starving the Half-truths and Lies
  • Finding Half-truths and Lies through Questions
  • Finding and Feeding Truth
  • Steps to Finding and Feeding Truth
  • Truth Matters
I was so excited about getting this book! I got to meet Sister Pearce and her Mom Sister Hinckley one year at BYU Women's Conf. They are both amazing women that I adore!

This book really made me think a lot about clearing my mind and taking time to relax. I enjoyed reading this book and found it inspiring! 

Now here's the exciting part...

I get to give one lucky winner a copy of this book!

I plan on going to Deseret this week after doing research about Miscarriage. We lost our second baby last week and I have been looking for a book for LDS mothers. I found "For They Shall Be Comforted: Grieving the Loss of a Child"
