Product Description

Internationally renowned as a surgeon, teacher, and man of great faith, President Russell M. Nelson has dedicated his life to healing hearts and ministering throughout his medical career and his Church service. This definitive volume of his teachings presents excerpts from his speeches and writings spanning more than three decades as an Apostle of the Lord, including many from his recent world tour and other unpublished addresses. Alphabetically arranged by topic, these teachings on more than 100 subjects provide a perfect, easy-to-use resource for talks, lessons, and more. Following are a few brief samples.

"My dear brothers and sisters, you have as much access to the mind and will of the Lord for your own life as we Apostles do for His Church. Just as the Lord required us to seek and ponder, fast and pray, and study and wrestle with difficult questions, He requires you to do the same as you seek answers to your own questions."

"I recognize that, on occasion, some of our most fervent prayers may seem to go unanswered. We wonder, 'Why?' I know that feeling! I know the fears and tears of such moments. But I also know that our prayers are never ignored. Our faith is never unappreciated. I know that an all-wise Heavenly Father's perspective is much broader than is ours. While we know of our mortal problems and pain, He knows of our immortal progress and potential. If we pray to know His will and submit ourselves to it with patience and courage, heavenly healing can take place in His own way and time."

"We need women who know how to make important things happen by their faith and who are courageous defenders of morality and families in a sin-sick world. We need women who are devoted to shepherding God's children along the covenant path toward exaltation; women who know how to receive personal revelation, who understand the power and peace of the temple endowment; women who know how to call upon the powers of heaven to protect and strengthen children and families; women who teach fearlessly."

Readers will appreciate this chance to become more familiar with President Nelson's insights and wisdom as they come to know him as a prophet of God. A perfect resource for talks, lessons, and more.

I haven't had this book very long, but long enough to be inspired by President Nelson's bold and powerful speaking of gospel truths and insights. I appreciate his strength, caring and sharing of gospel truths. I got this book first because I thought Deseret book's prices a bit steep, but plan to get President Nelson's story, "Insights from a Prophet's Life" also.

Alongside our daily reading of the scriptures we choose a paragraph from President Nelson's book to enrich our days. He is an inspiration in all we see him do and hear him speak, to live a holy life.

I love how this book is set up by subject. When preparing our Youth Sunday School lessons, my husband and I have looked up President Nelson's quotes about the theme or subjects of the lessons.

I just received my copy and have opened it pages. Even within the first few paragraphs, the reader can feel President Nelson's passion for the human heart and especially for the human soul.
This book is on my side table and is opened frequently. We may wish we could sit at his feet to be taught; we can accomplish this by reading his words. He is a Prophet of the Lord.

This book is very well written, and includes all of President Nelson's teachings as a General Authority. Keep your eyes on the Prophet!! President Nelson's teachings are timely and loving. I'm personally grateful for the doctrine taught by President Nelson over the past three decades. He is a true witness and disciple of our Savior Jesus Christ.

I just received this book and have started to read it. After reading other books he wrote and listening to his conference talks he has helped me tremendously in my life as a convert
to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. This book will help you to continue to learn to be on the straight and narrow path. I strongly recommend you purchase this book.
All the words of our Prophets and Apostles and other Church leaders can make a tremendous difference in our life. Please be sure to watch October 2019 General Conference more than
once. I have a very strong testimony about our Savior Jesus Christ, Joseph Smith and this Church. Thank you President Nelson.
