Consider The Blessings Book Review...

I am so excited to share with you a new book out called Consider the Blessings!!

If you ask people what they love most about President Thomas S. Monson’s teaching style, chances are they’ll say something about the personal experiences he relates. The accounts President Monson shares are always true, taken from his own life or the real lives of other people. Those warm, memorable accounts have truly become a hallmark of his messages.

Who can forget the woman who saved one of the two sticks of gum Elder Monson passed out to youth in postwar Germany? Or the neighbor who returned a box of baseballs to young Tommy as a thank-you for his kindness to her? Or the father who declined to attend a “Mormon” meeting with his family but had his heart softened by a message he heard on a radio that was actually broken?

In celebration of the fiftieth anniversary of his call as an Apostle, Consider the Blessings presents fifty of the true accounts President Thomas S. Monson has shared over the years. With beautiful photographs and heart-touching content, this is a book to treasure with the whole family.

President Monson's stories are what make his talks memorable. Learn more about how to write and give a great talk like President Monson in LDS Living's guide (Click Here)

My Review:

First I fell in love with the cover of this book the second I received it! I then opened the book and started reading the beautiful, touching stories within. I enjoyed each one and plan to use them for upcoming talks and family nights. President Monson has such a loving sweet way with his words that touches me deeply. My family highly recommends this book full of powerful, uplifting stories it's fantastic. This is going to make a perfect gift for everyone on my Christmas list this year for sure!
