When we are in the middle of trials it is hard to even imagine where the end might be and we may question if we will EVER make it. In this little book Emily Freeman focuses on six lessons that will help the reader stay strong and endure to the end! Inspiring and uplifting, this little book is such a cute size for gift-giving!
When I read books like this I sometimes feel like they are written for me. Emily Freeman addresses a topic that interests me greatly. She's right when she mentions that most people talk about trials in the context of the 'end' of the trial, but it's usually the middle that's the hardest part and enduring it can be very difficult. I know for me, sometimes the end is impossible to see. That's when faith is the most important. I really enjoyed this book and the recommendations that she makes. She suggests:
Turn to the scriptures (she has some that she specifically references)
Wait patiently, tomorrow will come
Recognize and remember His mercy
Rely on the Atonement
Continue to minister
Trust God's heart
This book was written just for ME!
I need this book right now!
For I am in a 'middle'~
I am struggling with this 'middle'~
I am anxious to get out of this 'middle'~
I LEARNED SO MUCH FROM THIS BOOK!
LOVED this question:
"Have you ever noticed that when people talk abut their trials in a public setting, they tend to focus on what happened at the end? They talk about the miracle, the promise, the way it all worked out."
It's so TRUE!
"It isn't often that people talk about what happened in the MIDDLE of the trial!"
This book gives us HOPE!
Personal stories and scriptures are taught to bring us lessons that WILL HELP us through the "middle moments of our lives."
Two quotes I really needed to hear:
"Sometimes He refines us in ways we might not have wanted
because he needs to use us in ways we might not have thought."
"When you can't see God's hand, trust His heart."
If you or someone you know is going through a "middle" this book will bring you/them perspective and peace.
