My review: We Are Daughters of Our Heavenly Father by Jen Brewer
This book goes into what the Young Women Theme really means and how it came about and why. Each chapter gives examples, scriptures, stories and additional resources to look at. In the back of the book are questions with room to write goals, what you want to know, what questions do you want to find answers to. (If you get the ebook than write the questions down in journal or notebook just for that.) I did not take the time to answer the questions but would love to go back and read again slower and ponder.
First few chapters really meant a lot to me. Just really needed to read that last night. Telling us that we are daughters of our Heavenly Father. He loves each of us and knows us. That he sent Jesus down so we can be saved. That he paid the price for our sins. If I was the only one on this planet he would still send down our Savior for me and for you. Because he over came death we can return one day to our Father in Heaven.
These values are to help us all to come closer to our Savior, to return someday to our Heavenly Father. To be better daughters and someday mothers. Too realize how special everyone is and loved.
One quote I wrote down for me is Don't be just a Sunday Saint be a Weekday Warrior!
Meaning live your religion all week and not just on Sundays.
This book is written for LDS Young Women but the values and principles can be for anyone. The Young Women stand up every Sunday and quote this together. I put the theme down on the bottom of blog if anyone wants to copy it feel free to.
I am glad that I got to read this uplifting book. I know it meant a lot to me and touched me deeply.
So thank you for writing this book for me.
I was given a copy of this ebook to read for free from Cedar Fort Publishers. In return I agreed to give a honest review of We Are Daughters of Our Heavenly Father and be part of it's blog tour.
