From the jacket cover: Do you sometimes wonder if your little efforts could possibly make any difference at all? Consider a simple example from nature.
Honey is “one of the foods that includes all the substances— enzymes, vitamins, minerals, and water—necessary to sustain life,” writes Elder M. Russell Ballard. And yet, “Over its short lifetime of just a few weeks to four months, a single honeybee’s contribution of honey to its hive is a mere one-twelfth of one teaspoon. Though seemingly insignificant when compared to the total, each bee’s one-twelfth of a teaspoon of honey is vital to the life of the hive.”
Your simple, daily acts of service matter, and this charmingly illustrated little book will lift your heart as it demonstrates the power of many righteous people working together to fill the world, one drop at a time, with the sweet truths of the gospel.
This little book is based on a talk that Elder M. Russell Ballard gave in Conference a couple of years ago. I love the message of the book, one little act of service given by one person compounds with more acts of service given by others and fills the whole world with the love of the Savior. I have really been trying to incorporate this message into my life in the last few months and it's had a profound effect on the way that I see the world and the way that I treat others. I'm no where near perfect, but I try through small and simple acts to convey the love of the Savior to those around me through service. This is a beautiful little book that will give you a lot to think about!
I was sent a copy of this book by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
