Known for her wit and wisdom, Mary Ellen Edmunds writes about all the ways to show love, to give love, to be love. From the first chapter by the same title all the way through the chapter "Charity Never Faileth," Love is a Verb is filled with charm and insight that Mary Ellen conveys through personal experiences she has felt, observed, and acted upon over the years. We learn from watching others, and mostly they don't know they're providing a learning experience for us. She tells about touching and tender moments with people who have been examples of Christ-like love. She also tells of funny incidents with people who have brought pure joy to others through love and laughter. Mary Ellen teaches that charity, the pure love of Christ, is something everyone deserves to experience — by both giving it and receiving it.

When this book was first released, I was so touched by it's message that I gave it as a gift to more people than I can remember! Sister Edmunds truly personifies the Savior's love and this book outlines ways that we can also better walk in his footsteps.
One of my favorite books of all time!!

I strive to embrace the things I have read in this book and add them to my repertoire of behavior. Mary Ellen Edmunds has a way of normalizing our humanness and uplifting the soul of those she speaks and writes to. She is very personable and gracious in her approach. I love her style and admire her strength and devotion. She is one of my greatest teachers.
