CONSIDER THE BLESSINGS by Thomas S Monson--Book Review

CONSIDER THE BLESSINGS by Thomas S Monson. This compliation of 50 true stories of how The Lord has a hand in our lives is by far one of my favorite reads. The stories, most of which I have heard at one point or another, are beautifully illustrated which enhanses the stories. I love how they are only a page or two making it easy to pull one out to share with my family or use in a lesson. Each one is uplifting and inspiring and helps me realize how much The Lord is in our lives. I will continually refer to this book as a reminder to look for the ways The Lord has guided my life.

If you ask people what they love most about President Thomas S. Monson’s teaching style, chances are they’ll say something about the personal experiences he relates. The accounts President Monson shares are always true, taken from his own life or the real lives of other people. Those warm, memorable accounts have truly become a hallmark of his messages.
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.
