Blog Tour - A Refuge From the Storm

About the bookIn our tempestuous day, where can we turn for refuge

It is no surprise to anyone familiar with prophecy that the latter days are stormy ones. "We live in a very dangerous world that threatens those things that are most spiritual," writes President Boyd K. Packer. "The adversary is about. His objective is to cause injury."

But there is a place of strength and peace, a true refuge from the storm. In this powerful book, President Packer discusses the priesthood, the family, and the Church, three important forces that, working together, create a haven from the world. "The gospel of Jesus Christ enables individuals to become exalted by being part of eternal families," he writes. "The gospel contains the purpose, the doctrine, and the plan. The priesthood is the power and the authority. The Church has the means and organization. The exalted, eternal family is the end of the gospel plan."

This apostolic counsel will help you build an unshakable foundation for eternity by strengthening your understanding of core doctrine regarding the priesthood, the family, and the Church.

My review: I LOVE President Packer, I love how he is not afraid to tell things as they are. He is really an amazing man. This book is really awesome! It talks about what all of us need to know about the Priesthood, it's written for men, women, youth and children to help us all learn about this marvelous power that Heavenly Father has given us to help protect us from the storms of life. I think it's really a timely book, there are so many voices around us telling us exactly what the Priesthood should mean to men and women. Unfortunately, those voices are mostly sent from the Devil and we need to look to our leaders to know what Heavenly Father would have us know about the subject. Thanks to President Packer for giving us this great book to help us learn more about our Father's power.

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

Purchase at Deseret Book, online and in stores.
