Product Description

In our tempestuous day, where can we turn for refuge

It is no surprise to anyone familiar with prophecy that the latter days are stormy ones. "We live in a very dangerous world that threatens those things that are most spiritual," writes President Boyd K. Packer. "The adversary is about. His objective is to cause injury."

But there is a place of strength and peace, a true refuge from the storm. In this powerful book, President Packer discusses the priesthood, the family, and the Church, three important forces that, working together, create a haven from the world. "The gospel of Jesus Christ enables individuals to become exalted by being part of eternal families," he writes. "The gospel contains the purpose, the doctrine, and the plan. The priesthood is the power and the authority. The Church has the means and organization. The exalted, eternal family is the end of the gospel plan."

This apostolic counsel will help you build an unshakable foundation for eternity by strengthening your understanding of core doctrine regarding the priesthood, the family, and the Church.

This book was not at all what I expected by the title, It is a very informative read on what the church is all about. I love how he uses his own life stories to convey his message.

This book is POWERFUL!

We are living in uncertain times...

In this book you will learn about the three things that will help us get through...

THE PRIESTHOOD
THE FAMILY
THE CHURCH

Is it any wonder that Satan is attacking those very things?

The gospel gives us the power to fight back...it is the plan of salvation.

The priesthood is by what power and authority we live.

The church is the organization.

The eternal family is the goal.

Pulling from Elder Boyd K. Packer's teachings you will learn how the Priesthood is organized and how it is to be used and what power it can bring to your life.

You will learn about the family and how we should be treating each other and how we can best support each other.

Finally you will learn how the church organization is there to help and how ordinary men and women can lead and guide us to safety.

We need not fear what is ahead of us.

WONDERFUL explanations of gospel principles and practices!
This book is POWERFUL!
So many insights!
