MY GOD hath been my SUPPORT
Seven Keys to Understanding and Enduring Personal Trials by David T. Morgan, PhD
Nephi, that great hero of the Book of Mormon, is often viewed as a pinnacle of devotion: steadfastly faithful, profoundly spiritual, and unwaveringly obedient. But the beautiful passage of scripture often referred to as Nephi’s Psalm reveals that, like all of us, Nephi faced his own inner struggles in this mortal existence. His heartfelt introspection demonstrates that amid the trials of life, discouragement can burden us all—but it can also be overcome.
In My God Hath Been My Support: Seven Keys to Understanding and Enduring Personal Trials, author David T. Morgan looks to the words of Nephi’s Psalm to offer an inspiring message of hope and a loving call to action. Featuring tools and ideas on how to overcome adversity, increase feelings of self-worth, and endure the ups and downs of mortality, this scripture-based roadmap to a more fulfilling life is a joyous invitation to learn from Nephi how to transform sorrow into joy.
MY REVIEW: (LAWonder10)
This uplifting, inspiring "quick read" book is directed at an L.D. S. audience.
The author, a psychologist, lists and develops several important concepts to entice us to live closer to Our Heavenly Father's Spirit and peace and joy in our own lives.
He instructs us how to grow closer to God, how to love others more perfectly, how to pray more meaningfully, live our lives without guile, make correct choices, recognize and be wi8lling to overcome personal weaknesses, plus more!
At the end of each chapter, he lists the concept and thought questions to aid in accomplishing these goals.
This author's writing never drags and occasionally slips in humorous statements. It is totally captivating to the reader.
I give this literary work a Five Stars rating.
*This book was gifted me with no suggestion for a positive review. This is my honest review.
