The third in a trilogy of books relating to the Atonement, The Belonging Heart explores what it means to feel at one with our Father in Heaven, with Christ and his cause, and with our family and friends. This book's theme deals with how the Atonement helps us build our relationships with the Lord and with others, especially family members. As we accept the Atonement, the Lord blesses us with a belonging heart. When we commit our lives to God, we show that commitment by how we give our lives, a day at a time for the benefit of those we love by how fully we let ourselves belong to them. The authors explain, “In this kind of life, a full life of gracious connections with God and with other people, we may find where we really belong — for what we really were made.” This thought-provoking book helps us learn to gain the fullness of mortality by “always abounding in good works. . . [that] Christ, the Lord God Omnipotent, may seal [us] his.” (Mosiah 5:15.)
