“Making covenants with God calls forth the divine within us. Keeping our covenants with God allows Him to pour His divine power into us.” — Wendy Watson Nelson
In Covenant Keepers, Wendy Watson Nelson uses the scriptures, and examples of those who have taken the Lord at His word and put His doctrine to the test, to offer us invigorating insights into the baptismal, sacramental, and temple covenants.
As you read this insightful book, you’ll learn . . .
- Why your covenants help make meaning out of the anguishing experiences of your mortal life
- Why your covenants can help relieve the loneliness, boredom, and despair you may feel from time to time
- Why, as a covenant keeper, you have the right to ask for angels to be dispatched to help you and your loved ones
- About the 21-day challenge that changed stressed-out, young mothers lives for the better
“There has never been a more important time to understand the power to which we have access because of our covenants than right now!” - Wendy Watson Nelson

I picked up this book on a whim without knowing anything about it and I am SO glad that I did. This is a little gem! (The best things DO come in small packages) ;)
Covenant Keepers is thought provoking, peacefully inspiring and incredibly motivating. My husband and I read this together. We loved the personal experiences that make this book relatable and surprisingly enjoyable to read and re-read. This book has compelled me to pay better attention to what is most important... our covenants. Sister Nelson's words are simple but powerful and profound. In this book, she has laid before us the way to get the most out of life... the ultimate treasure map... the way to finding true happiness and an abundance of blessings. She kindly encourages us to embrace our responsibility in the Lords work and teaches us how we can make the most of our lives and our time as latter day saints. She states, "Imagine what can happen as we make a sacrifice of time to the Lord by doing two things we know He really cares about: Family History and Temple Work." If you are looking for that extra encouragement to begin your genealogy or even if you aren’t, this will push you over the edge (in a good way). If you are looking to get a bit more from your temple experience, your baptismal covenants, the sacrament or Sunday worship, you've found it.

Don't get wrong, I loved the message of this book, but 12 hours after purchasing the EBook and reading it in a matter of minutes, I discovered that this is just a download of her talk from 2015 women's conference entitled "My soul delighted in the covenants of the Lord..." https://womensconference.ce.byu.edu/sites/womensconference.ce.byu.edu/files/wendy_watson_nelson.pdf
Worth the read, but read it free.
I'm sure it makes a beautiful table book in hardcover.

This book is so inspiring, concise and to the point of how important it is to do Family History and Temple work. I have been doing both for many years but was not aware of all the help we can receive from the other side of the veil. I have read it 3 times and will continue to read it over and over again. Sister Nelson is such a wonderful writer. She packs a punch in all she has written. She inspires me to be a better person and a better convenant keeper. Thank you Sister Nelson for writing this book!

I was impressed to buy this book, after seeng a short excerpt. I didn't really know what it was about. I've been brought to tears as I have read. I am teaching our young single adults at a regional conference about family history this weekend. I had been praying to know what to teach. This book was an answer to my prayers. Thank you! I can't put it down! I am ordering one for my daughter as well as multiple copies to spread throughout our stake. Elder Eyring said the Holy Ghost is what changes hearts. The Holy Ghost will testify of the truths in this book and change hearts, turning them to their fathers and to the temple.

This is a great book even for those who do not like to read. It's brief and yet packed full of wonderful insights, one of which is praying for Heavenly Father to allow an angel - mostly one of your relatives/ancestors who have passed on - to assist you. I'm so very grateful for Sister Nelson writing this book. It would be a great gift for anyone for any occasion.
