The Remarkable Soul of a Woman
by Dieter F. Uchtdorf
If you are feeling overwhelmed with change, challenges, or checklists, you may wonder how you can partake now of God’s happiness and find your pathway to peace, hope, and joy.
With loving insight, President Dieter F. Uchtdorf addresses two attributes that contribute to our Heavenly Father’s perfect happiness – the power of creation and service with compassion. As a treasured daughter of our Heavenly Father, you can develop those remarkable abilities as well as find happiness in the journey.
By listening to the Spirit, you can come to realize that creating is not just done with paint, pen, or pottery, and compassionate service is more than a casserole or a card. As you bring something into existence that has never been before and as you serve others – even in small ways – you cannot help but participate in the wonder that is God’s joy.
In The Remarkable Soul of a Woman, President Uchtdorf’s timely thoughts on creating and being compassionate will buoy you up, give you strength, and help you realize what a great power for good you truly are.
