Today's post is brought to you by

I love Deseret Book's motto, "Bringing Values Home." Deseret Book has many spiritual and uplifting products. I was privileged to read 21 Principles: Divine Truths to help you Live by the Spirit by Elder Richard G. Scott. Luckily, I get to offer one of YOU a copy of this marvelous book. You won't want to miss out on this giveaway! Continue reading to find out why and how...
"As you seek spiritual knowledge, search for principles," counsels Elder Richard G. Scott. "Principles are concentrated truth, packaged for application to a wide variety of circumstances."In this exciting book, Elder Scott offers 21 principles distilled from his life experiences. These "concentrated truths" will help you understand more fully how to be guided by the Spirit. Elder Scott's brief explanations open the way for your own discovery and exploration. "I bear witness that Jesus Christ knows you personally," Elder Scott writes. "He will provide answers to every difficult problem in your life as you trust Him and do all you can to understand and apply His doctrine and strive to live by the Spirit." 21 Principles will be a valuable tool in that quest.

About the Author:

Elder Richard G. Scott, was called as a member of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in October 1988. He had served in the First Quorum of the Seventy since 1977 and was a member of the presidency of that quorum for five years. He holds a B.S. degree in mechanical engineering and completed post-graduate work in nuclear engineering. Prior to his call as a General Authority, he worked on the staff of Admiral Hyman Rickover developing military and private nuclear power reactors. Elder Scott and his wife, Jeanene Watkins Scott (deceased), are the parents of seven children.

In my opinion:

Richard G. Scott's 21 Principles was insightful and informational. Scott provided some great examples from his personal life as well as Joseph Smith's life. There were many profound thoughts especially at the end of the book. Scott gave many challenges for us to live by the spirit. He told us to read the Book of Mormon because we want to not because we have to. That struck a cord within me and it completely changed my attitude on how to approach reading the Book of Mormon.

Principle #3 spoke to me and I remembered how I felt when I wanted to learn how to knit. My grandma has knitted these beautiful Christmas stockings for her family for years. I knew she was getting older but I wanted them for my own family so I asked her if she could teach me how to knit. It took some practice but I finally got the hang of it and now I have customers that email me with their orders. I found a new talent and loved it. I will always cherish the time my grandma gave to teach me how to knit. Although there were many challenges along the way, I was able to overcome. There are probably many talents that we have that we are unaware of. I appreciated Scott's profound thoughts on this subject.

I also loved how Scott bore solemn witness of the truth at the end of each chapter. You could definitely feel the strength of his testimony. I definitely recommend this book. It is short and easy to understand.
