I enjoyed taking time during my daily devotional to read portions of these books, choosing whatever I felt I needed to give me direction that day. Each of these authors is highly qualified and their powerfully succinct writing has stayed with me.
Below, I have a summary of each of the books. Check out Deseretbook.com for more details.
Habits of Happiness – Wendy Ulrich
When happiness doesn’t enter our days automatically, and when life isn’t going as planned, sometimes we are quick to equivocally gauge our overall happiness in life. In this book, filled with scientific research, practical advice and engaging anecdotes, Dr. Wendy Ulrich invites readers to look at happiness in a new way.
Everything I Need to Know I Learned at Home – John BythewaySometimes the smallest phrases we use in everyday language can be eternal principles that get us through our lives. In this book, John Bytheway makes an inspiring and insightful connection between everyday phrases spoken at home and principles of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Making It Through the Middle – Emily Freeman
Life is full of challenges, and it’s easy to feel the end of our trials will never arrive. But is it the end we should be spending so much of our time focusing on? In this book, Emily Freeman shares six lessons, and various personal experiences to assist readers in staying strong when they are right in the middle of a hard time.
I received review copies of these books which in no way influence my honest opinion.
