Product Description

If you have a job, or children, or a spouse, or a body, you probably understand the idea of a "mixed blessing." Popular speaker and author Emily Watts observes, "It's as if every mortal experience is a coin with two sides. If you want to be happy, learn to see the blessing side of the coin." She goes on to give many examples, framed by her own hilarious, real-life stories, illustrating how to shed our pride, rejoice in the blessings we've been given, and trust that the Lord knows what he is doing even when we can't see what He has in mind for us.

Helped put things back into perspective

I truly enjoy listening to this message. Emily Watts makes me laugh out loud and discusses issues that deeply touch my heart. Thank you for helping me gain a better perspective of my life. This talk helped me to get over the guilt I felt for sometimes resenting the blessings in my life (ie. my family taking up so much of my time and not appreciating how much I do for them) and helped me to gain a better understanding of what my Heavenly Father wants for me. Read this book if you are feeling overwhelmed by all of the trials of motherhood. It certainly has helped me.

Great Talk!

Shallow

Sorry but I found this talk very shallow. If you are one who thinks getting a dent in your car or having your kid spill red koolaid all over the carpet is the end of the world then this CD is for you. But if your life is one of real tribulation you will feel let down by this talk.
