About the book: "Sisters take care of each other, watch out for each other, comfort each other, and are there for each other through thick and thin," observes Sister Bonnie L. Oscarson, Young Women general president.
In this delightful and inspiring book, Sister Oscarson encourages all women to look beyond differences in age, culture, and circumstance in order to better nurture and serve one another. She explains that all women—young or old, married or single, working in an office or running a home—have unique talents and gifts to share. Focusing on the boundless blessings that Latter-day Saint women enjoy, Sister Oscarson urges women throughout the Church to live and inspire others in ways that realize their greatest potential.
My review: This is a beautiful little book! I love the cover and the inside is really just as great. Each two page spread is filled with a scrapbook looking image and a bit of Sister Bonnie Oscarson's April 2014 conference talk, which was amazing! I love the way the talk encourages women to build each other up rather than tearing each other down. That's what the world needs right now. Less competition with each other and more compassion for each other. That's the kind of thing that this little book teaches in a truly beautiful way. I love how the book is designed to be a gift and with Mother's Day coming up, it would be perfect. I think it would also make a great gift for the sisters you visit teach or just a friend having a rough day.
I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
