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.

About the Author:
In my opinion:
I adore President Thomas S. Monson and know that he is a true prophet. Consider the Blessings is a collection of 50 precious stories to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Monson becoming an Apostle.
If you loved listening to President Monson in General Conference, you will love this sweet book of experiences all compiled in one book. It was a very easy book to get through, however, grab a tissue for you may shed a tear. I would love to meet President Monson someday. My son, Eli recently said, "Monson is my best friend." Yes he is only three but he knows about Monson.
Monson has had a wonderful life full of wonderful memories and experiences. Oh how lucky we are to listen to a true and living prophet today.
Most of his stories are about being prepared and hearkening to the spirit. Trusting in God was always apparent in his mind. Let us remember to "never postpone a prompting." This was evident and a lesson learned in most of his experiences. I definitely recommend this book to everyone.
