when God speaks to us through everyday items and incidents

Miracles & Musings:

recognizing God’s love in blessings big and small

Sometimes we think miracles require parting seas or burning bushes, lepers healed or mountains moved. However, if we open our spiritual eyes, we’ll see that miracles happen any time God touches our life for good. Once we recognize this, we are changed forever by His love.

These short, true stories from the author’s life give examples–some dramatic, but most seemingly commonplace–that show God is over all. Meet people who inspire and see moments that bring God’s love to light. Great for devotionals or those moments when your faith needs a lift. Each short chapter comes with a Bible verse to tie God’s word to daily life.

 

Knocking & Knowing:

when faith is hard to find

Latter-day Testimony Series

How Much Do You Want It?

Anyone who truly wants a testimony of the Savior Jesus Christ and His Plan of Happiness can get one, but it takes more than wanting. It takes action. Whether you’ve been a member of the Church all your life, or you’re just exploring its teachings for the first time, this little book will help you see why basic, simple steps can make all the difference. It all depends on how much you want it. This book is suitable for the whole family.

 

You See What You Look At

Everyone has a unique perspective, but most of us have allowed society to program the way we process and react to the things around us. Most of us fall into very conventional patterns of what dominates our attention. The media shouts at us and tells us to focus on X, Y, and Z because they deem them important (and most likely lucrative).

But the truth remains, metaphorically or literally, that we see what we look at. What we see affects what we think about and how we feel, whether we’re looking in the mirror, or at the news, or into the neighbor’s yard. Do we see the bright smile, the medical break-through, and the blooming roses? Or do we focus on the thick waist, the local crime, and the dandelions getting ready to spew seeds?

Expanding our vision and adjusting our focus to see the good in the world brings joy and hope even when life seems to crumble at our feet.

The trick is to trust the Lord’s wisdom more than our own, His perception of Reality more than our limited, microcosmic view. Oh, we say we trust Him, but if we continue with a dim outlook on the future, we’re fooling ourselves. Thankfully, it’s an easy fix once we know what to do.

Written from the Latter-day Saint (Mormon) perspective, this book offers 11 practical ways to change how you look at the world around you in order to find more happiness in daily life. This is suitable for the whole family.

 

Help Thou My Unbelief

Written from the Latter-day Saint perspective, this short books aims to rekindle faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and help world-weary travelers overcome obstacles of sin, betrayal, self-doubt, and more.
