About the book: What difference does it make to have the light of the gospel in your life? To a twelve-year-old girl in post-World War II Germany, it made all the difference.
In this charming book, Sister Harriet R. Uchtdorf reflects on the power of heavenly light in her own life and recalls the joy it brought to her family during a dark and difficult time. "It was like a miracle," she explains as she describes how hope came back into their lives.
Discover how the light we share can make a life-changing difference to those whose lives we touch-as family members, leaders, missionaries, teachers, friends, and brothers and sisters in the gospel.
My review: this was the gift for the first 100 people at Ladies Night at Deseret Book this year. I'm glad that I was able to get one. I really enjoyed reading it. I think it took me all of 15 minutes to read, but I learned an awful lot about Sister Uchtdorf and her conversion story. I have never heard her talk about this the way she does in this small book. I love the way it made me feel as though I'm doing a better job at shining my light than I might sometimes think I am. Her story of faith and light touched me in a way that other things haven't been able to. I'm grateful she took the time to write this little book.
