Covenant Keepers by Wendy Watson Nelson

“When it comes to making and keeping covenants with God, nothing is more important. And nothing is more filled with power!” writes author Wendy Watson Nelson. “There has never been a more important time to understand the power to which we have access because of our covenants than right now.”

In Covenant Keepers, Wendy Watson Nelson relates personal experiences and insights that help us appreciate the profound importance of making and keeping covenants. She invites readers to take part in a unique twenty-one-day experiment designed to help participants experience greater spiritual power. By recognizing the connective powers of covenant making, the assistance we can receive from powers on high, and the integral role family history work plays in keeping our own covenants and allowing our deceased loved ones to make sacred covenants, we can truly come to understand what it means to be a covenant keeper.

 

Good Answers to Good Questions by Chris Huston

Are Mormons Christians? Do members of the Church worship Joseph Smith? Why can’t women hold the priesthood? Why don’t you accept gay people into your church? Misconceptions about The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints abound. From common questions to obscure queries, it’s inevitable that members of the Church will be required to set the record straight.

The only question is, will you be prepared to answer? In Good Answers to Good Questions, author Chris Huston teaches readers how to prepare for opportunities to address questions about the doctrines of the Church. Following the example of Christ’s method of teaching, the author poses fifty common questions that nonmembers might ask about the Church and then discusses possible responses, ranging from lengthy explanations to short answers. Drawing on scriptural evidence and quotes from Church leaders, readers will gain confidence as they learn to avoid overwhelming or offending their audience. Strengthen your own testimony as you learn to invite those interested in learning more about the gospel to “come and see.”

Living Joyfully in Troubled Times by Toni Sorenson

Many of us remember our divine nature only when life’s blessings smile down on us. But God’s love for His children transcends all trials and trying times. No matter what we are going through, joy is possible for all of us. There are many things in this world that cause us to become discouraged and depressed, but we can make the choice to be happy regardless of our circumstances.

Just as Adam and Eve chose to fall that men might be, we, too, must choose to live so that [we] might have joy. We have the power within us to decide to face our adversities with faith, hope, and optimism. Joy is not an achievement; it s a journey, and a loving God wouldn’t have commanded us to find it without providing directions. Dear Reader, We live in a glorious world. More joy abounds than we can imagine. We just have to know how and where to find it. That s what I hope this book becomes to you a roadmap–to joy. Toni Sorenson
