It is better to look up-Life experiences shared from the pulpit {Written by Emilee}

Now that General Conference has ended, why not check out more inspirational stories in this new book called,
It is better to look up
~Life Experiences shared from the pulpit~

The best part is that royalties from this book will benefit the general missionary fund of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
 

About:

We all love to be taught with stories. The Savior shared many in his ministry, and His prophets and other Church leaders have often emulated that great example. Gospel lessons come alive when they are presented in this way. 

It It Better to Look Up gathers more than fifty of the most memorable personal experienced shared in general conference over the years and pairs them with stunning photographic images. The result is an irresistible volume filled with remarkable true accounts of God's hand in our lives. 

You'll love browsing through such gems as "In Harm's Way," by President Thomas S. Monson; "Man Down!" by President Henry B. Eyring; "Lift Where You Stand," by President Dieter F. Uchtdorf; "You Stupid Cow!" by Elder Mervyn B. Arnold; "Worldly Promises," by Sister Bonnie L. Oscarson; and dozens more. These short pieces are perfect for a quick moment of inspiration in a class, a home evening, or personal devotional time. Each one is presented with a scripture to complement the gospel message. 

Featuring stories from every member of the First Presidency and the Quorum of the Twelve, plus many additional leaders past and present, this beautifully illustrated book will soon become a family favorite and a precious keepsake.

In my opinion:

This book was exactly what I needed to read. It was inspirational and uplifting.  There were 56 stories that were included in It is better to look up and the stories uplifted my heart. I'm not sure if I could narrow it down and choose one favorite story but I did enjoy Elder L. Tom Perry's story. He was obedient to the Word of Wisdom and became a great example to many people.  Another great story was told by Elder Dallin H. Oaks who had a scary experience of life and death. But, he remained calm and listened to the still small voice.

Thank goodness we have the gospel in our lives. If you haven't picked up your copy of It is better to look up, you better get one soon. The stories were fun to read and reminded me to look up instead of at the ground especially during the hard times. I will treasure this book for a long time. I definitely recommend it!!!
