What We Are Reading — Fall 2015

When we aren’t working, the employees at the Book Table love to read! Here are some of the recent books that we’ve lost ourselves in.

SABRINA’S READING…

The Goose Girl by Shannon Hale

Displaying IMG_8050.JPGI grew up reading The Goose Girl out of my fairy tale book and making a play of it with my sisters. When I got older I decided to read the book. I am glad I did because now it is one of my favorites.

This book is about a princess and her kingdom, a betrayal of a friend, true love, and the meeting of new people. I hope you enjoy this book as much as I did.

Kellie’s Reading…

My Story by Elizabeth Smart and Chris Stewart

Displaying IMG_8042.JPGThis book was all about Elizabeth Smart’s journey as she was kidnapped, repeatedly raped, starved, and then rescued nine months later. It was a very interesting read and it was easy for me to get into and read for hours.

I enjoyed reading this book because it helped me to appreciate what I have more and to gain a greater respect for Elizabeth Smart. She wrote a lot about her faith and religion and how it helped her through everything that happened to her. She wrote about the miracles that she saw while she was gone. I now look up to Elizabeth Smart more than before and I admire her for her solid testimony and the strong, genuine person that she is. I really enjoyed this book and I would definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to learn more about Elizabeth Smart and the things that she went through.

Heidi’s Reading…

The Divergent Trilogy by Veronica Roth.

Displaying IMG_8041.JPGThe trilogy consists of Divergent, Insurgent, Allegiant, and Four, which includes five short stories from the trilogy in Tobias Eaton’s perspective. Divergent takes place in a future chicago where the citizens are separated into 5 different factions according to their personalities. This is believed to allow peace in the city. Beatrice Prior, an abnegation born and Dauntless transfer, discovers she is Divergent.

After losing loved ones, she is determined to fight against the faction system, discover secrets, and find a better way to live. Each book is filled with adventure, mysteries, romance, and secrets. I loved reading this series! I would recommend it to everyone!

 Kourtney’s READING…

The Book With No Pictures by B.J. Novak

Displaying IMG_5068.JPGSometimes when you are super busy and you don’t have a lot of time to read a novel, a great children’s book will do just fine.

I seriously love this book. You might think that a picture book with no pictures would be boring. You might also think that someone who wrote the adult-centric comedy of television’s The Office wouldn’t be able to hit the sweet spot with preschoolers. You would be wrong.

If you need a good quick children’s book to read that will give you a laugh, this one is perfect! This is one book you can’t read in your head though; the best way to read it is to say everything aloud. This is a book that kids will absolutely love!

New Missionary Books!

We recently got in a great selection of new missionary books and are so excited to share them with you!  These are perfect for any missionary who is about to leave on their mission and for those who have just returned home.

Will My Child Be Ready? by Emily Freedman

Will My Child Be ReadyA missionary’s training does not begin when he or she enters the doors of the MTC. Well before that, each missionary’s mother can begin laying the groundwork that will prepare her child to diligently and wholeheartedly serve the Lord and His children.

Mothers have an immeasurable influence and a significant responsibility in raising up young men and women who are prepared to do the work of the Lord. The good news: that responsibility can begin wherever you and your child are on the path of preparation. Whether your child is two, eight, or eighteen, this unique resource written by mothers who have sent children on missions (and some who have also served as mission presidents’ wives) will help you build the foundation of faith, endurance, and hard work that every missionary needs.

What To Know Before You Go by Don H. Staheli

What to Know Before You Go: Developing the Heart and Soul of a MissionaryMissionaries need to begin their exciting time of service with as much personal preparation as possible. How can they create a spiritual foundation that will help them stand strong when times are difficult? What do they need to know even before they enter the Missionary Training Center?

Each short chapter includes a great tidbit of loving advice and spiritual counsel (the sort you would get if you were sitting across the table from your own mission president), as well as a true, inspirational experience shared by a full-time elder or sister missionary.

The Lord is hastening the work of salvation. He needs missionaries who know not only how to do missionary work but how to be missionaries. This insightful book will help you start off on the right foot as you work to develop the heart, mind, and soul of a missionary.

Missionary: Possible by Eric Rigby

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, starts with you and the scriptures. Learn how ordinary people became extraordinary and how their stories can build your testimony and prepare you for serving the Lord. Funny and full of practical ideas you can use, this book is perfect for teens and young adults as it leads them through the scriptures and solidifies their testimonies and preparedness.

Taking Off The Tag by Clark B. Hinckley

Taking Off the TagTaking off your missionary name tag, and all that goes with it, is unlike anything you have ever done before. With so many changes and important life decisions ahead, you might be thinking, “I wish there was an MTC for life after the mission!”

Regardless of where you served, returning home has its own challenges.

This handbook, written by a former mission president and his wife, with input from more than fifty returned missionaries, is designed specifically to help you and other recently returned elders and sisters move into life beyond full-time missionary service.

Great adventures and miracles still await you—the best is yet to come!
