Blog Tour - Day of Defense



Summary from Goodreads: There comes a point for each of us who are Latter-day Saints when we are face-to-face with those who have contrary views to ours. Oftentimes, we find ourselves feeling attacked and wish we knew just the right thing to say and how to say it.

Day of Defense: Positive Talking Points for the Latter Days transforms misconceptions and stigmas associated with the LDS Church into opportunities to effectively share the truth.

Discussion is divided into specific topics that place seemingly peculiar LDS beliefs into patterns seen in the Bible and early Christian history. Misunderstandings discussed include:

The Great Apostasy
Plural Marriage
Heaven and Hell
Man’s Potential and the Nature of God
The Book of Mormon
The Restoration

The Bible comparisons of these tough topics will give you the confidence to stand strong in the day of your defense.

I really enjoyed reading this book. There are a variety of topics that are well covered. I've been a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints my whole life, and I came away with a greater understanding of my religion by reading this book. I loved the way that the author used the scriptures to explain why the LDS Church does things the way that it does. I liked the way he discussed early Christian history. This is a really neat book that will help members of the LDS faith know how to answer questions about our religion and those not of our faith to understand it just a little bit better. 

I was sent an e-copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Deseret Bookshelf Plus Review

I'm super excited to be able to tell you about Deseret Bookshelf's newest feature, Plus. I actually first heard about plus coming six months ago at Deseret Book's ladies night. I thought it sounded pretty great and now that I've tried it, I think it's even better than it sounded. It's basically a subscription that you add on top of the Deseret Bookshelf App. If you have Deseret Book's Platinum membership, you pay only $6.99 a month or $69 a year. If you don't it's $9.99 a month or $99 a year. Either way that's a really good deal for what you are going to be getting.

Here's the deal. With plus, you get to listen to all of their audiobooks...for FREE! Something I noticed on this is that you get to listen to even the newest books that are just barely in the store for FREE. I love this! Who has the time to run to the store to grab the book the very day it comes out? Not me, I'm too busy chasing kids around to do that!

Not to mention - have you…

Kayaks and Kisses

About the book: Brynn Caley is about to start her dream career running an outdoor sporting goods store when an out-of-town business guru makes his own offer on the property. Coerced into forming a temporary partnership, Brynn, with her ski experience, finds she has to work with fishing expert Gage to run the year-round shop. 

Through a series of innocent misconceptions and a few blatant lies, Brynn doesn’t realize that the handsome single guy on the construction crew is her new partner, and he doesn’t want to set her straight until he can gain her favor. She, on the other hand, would do anything not to work with the stuffy businessman she’s only met through email. 

Inspired by the movies You’ve Got Mail and The Shop around the Corner, Kayaks & Kisses is a heart-warming tale of finding love in autumn leaves, outdoor activities, and new friendships.

My review: This book was so fun! I loved that it's loosely based on one of my very favorite movies, You've Got Mail. There was at …
