The Remarkable Soul of a Woman

I just finished the book over the weekend. Really, it is not that heavy or thick of a book but I wanted to be able to take my time with it and I love Elder Uchtdorf so I wanted to really hear what he had to say in his book. It is a nice cute little book about some wonderful thoughts and insights to the soul of a women. If you are ever in the need of a pick me up, I would definitely suggest taking a half hour, sit in the corner of your sofa and spend some time reading this book. Don't worry about speed reading it, take the time with it and realize that he is talking about every single one of us.

I have a simple faith. I believe as you are faithful and
diligent in keeping the commandments of God,
as you draw closer to Him in faith, hope, and charity,
things will work together for your good.

Eclipse ~ When will it get good?

I have been trying to read the third book ECLIPSE in the Twilight series. Now I remember why I never finished reading it last time. BLAH. I got it, she's grounded, whinny and really wants to still be friends with Jacob. Let's move on and get to something good.

So many people have told me that Eclipse was their favorite out of all four. I am having the hardest time getting past the first 100 pages or so {all it talks about is the same thing over and over and over again} and waiting for something to happen is dragging on. When will the story pick up? Will the book be half over before it actually catches my interest? Will Bella ever stop whining? Who knows!!!?!!! I will have to force myself to keep reading.

I need to finish this book before the movie comes out because if I see the movie before I get 'involved' in the book I know I will never try to read it again. But from what so many have said there is so much that goes on in it and it's the best part in the series. I'll try to stay on track and just keep reading.

The Remarkable Soul of a Woman

This is the new book that came out around Conference this spring. I love listening to President Uchtdorf and if you had a chance to listen to his talk at the Young Women's Conference, you know what I mean. ~ Read ~ Listen ~ I am so grateful that I had to opportunity to take my Sister-in-Law with me to the conference. It has been just like being back on my mission. Being able to share the gospel with someone that I love. With family that I will be with for all time. But more than that, it has been a wonderful blessing to see the gospel grow in someone who did not have it before. There is no greater joy than to be an instrument in the hand of the LORD to bring his children back to him. Alma 29:9

His book is just as sweet. He always has such wonderful things to say about his wife. How do we deal with a fast passed life? What is the greatest kind of happiness possible? We all have an inherent wish to create something that did not exist before.

We are not alone and the LORD is always with us. As he addresses all these questions and ideas I have felt a deep love by my Heavenly Father, I know I am not alone and am so grateful for the gospel in my life.

....Trust and rely on the Spirit.
As you take the normal opportunities of your daily life
and create something of beauty and helpfulness,
you improve not only the world around you
but also the world within you....

I have read the first half of the book and will post again when I finish the book. It's a small one so it should not take too long it is just a matter of making the time available to finish it.
