I remember the first time I heard this story. I was about 15 or so. 15 was hard, wasn’t it? I had bad acne, almost no boobs, and so little self-esteem. I was struggling fitting in with my group of friends so I was trying to find new ones.
This book CHANGED me and the way I viewed my life.
I felt completely understood! It changed the way I viewed Heavenly Father’s plan and the reasons we have trials. It helped me understand how much he loves me and how it pains him to see me suffer, yet how joyful he is even after a REALLY REALLY tough trial, I still choose to follow him and trust his love for me.
He is so proud when we choose to stay loyal to him. He knows we may wander off the path for a while, especially when things get tough, but when we’re ready he’ll ALWAYS take us back.
Just yesterday I was cleaning off a book shelf and came across this book and started to read it. It still resonates so much truth to me! I wanted to share it with all of you and hope that you’ll gain a new perspective too.
