In 1820, a young farm boy in search of truth has a vision of God the Father and Jesus Christ. Three years later, an angel guides him to an ancient record buried in a hill near his home. With God’s help, he translates the record and organizes the Savior’s church in the latter days. Soon others join him, accepting the invitation to become Saints through the Atonement of Jesus Christ. But opposition and violence follow those who defy old traditions to embrace restored truths.

My heart aches for what seems to be incredible unnecessary suffering. Plural marriage, and especially the circumstances and the way it was carried out was one of the sharper instances. But so much of the book just made me so sad. Like watching a movie about the titanic. To comfort my soul, and feel peace, I will turn to the sermon on the mount. Would that the church that claims to be the restored church would remember the living Christ and what he taught at least as much as "modern revelation". Jesus said, "the kingdom of God is within you." Remembering the living Jesus and what he taught with his own voice and life brings me peace. Thanks for reading.

On Nonviolent Communication, this renowned peacemaker presents his complete system for speaking our deepest truths, addressing our unrecognized needs and emotions, and honoring those same concerns in others. With this adaptation of the best-selling book of the same title, Marshall Rosenberg teaches in his own words.

It's basic. It's brilliant. Children know it before they are taught otherwise. Practical. I have applied it in several real life, high impact areas already and great results.
Thank you!

Every day, we hear of relationships failing and questions of whether humans are meant to be monogamous. Love Sense presents new scientific evidence that tells us that humans are meant to mate for life. Dr. Johnson explains that romantic love is an attachment bond, just like that between mother and child, and shows us how to develop our "love sense" - our ability to develop long-lasting relationships. Love is not the least bit illogical or random, but actually an ordered and wise recipe for survival.

12 hours of how wonderful she thinks she is. She found a way to make it the fault of the one needing some distance for safety. If you're going to read anything from her, go to Hold Me Tight. Not the best book, but at least she gets to the point there.
