Doing What We Came to Do: Living a Life of Love

About the book: What does it mean to live a life of love? Our capacity to give and receive love is a hallmark of discipleship, and evidence of our deepest desires and our understanding of God's plan for us.

Love helps us see ourselves as God sees us. Love enables us to bless others as we reach past our own concerns. Love provides opportunities to heal, to hope, and to have faith - even when dreams have to wait and the challenges of life weigh us down.

When we are filled with love, we can make a profound difference in our own lives, in our homes and circles of influence, and in the world in which we live. Love makes it possible for us to do what we came to do.

My review: I really enjoyed reading this book! I love the way this author writes. You can actually feel the love that she truly has for each and everyone of us radiating from it's pages. This is a small book. There are not terribly many pages and it's not very tall or wide. But I loved the amount of wisdom and advice crammed into it's pages.

I love the way it's set up. There are 5 different sections of different aspects of love. Within those sections, there are several chapters pertaining to that idea and at the end is a checklist of things you can do to work on that specific aspect. The author asks that you Ponder about what you have learned in some specific way, Ask Heavenly Father certain things and then Act, try out some suggestions and see how much better your life can be.

This book is so great! I enjoyed my time reading and learning from it!

I received this book as a Christmas gift
