Filled with Mercy is an invitation to spend a little time every day pondering the transcendent doctrine of the Atonement of Jesus Christ and its role in our individual lives. Each of the 365 devotionals contains bite-sized insights of daily wisdom from dozens of trusted authors and Church leaders, including Joseph Smith, Eliza R. Snow, Brigham Young, James E. Talmage, Truman G. Madsen, Neal A. Maxwell, and others.
As Elder Richard G. Scott explained, "There is an imperative need for each of us to strengthen our understanding of Christ's Atonement so that it will become an unshakable foundation upon which to build our lives." Filled with Mercy offers guidance, hope, and prophetic insight for those seeing to draw closer to the Lord and to deepen their understanding of the atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ.
The cover art which is so beautiful is a hint of the inspiring writings contained within. I received this as a gift, and it is indeed a beautiful gift that I look forward to opening each day in the coming year. I read the first few entries and feel so uplifted and elevated.
I was worried about how we were going to add one more thing to our busy family routine, but these quotes have been a saving grace. Whether we work them in at breakfast, dinner, or just before bed, these 30-second doses of wisdom have spawned some great family discussions. It reminds us and our family daily just why we are here on earth and the best source of help to go to – our Savior Jesus Christ.
