Are you carrying a burden or facing a challenge that defies resolution? Challenges are an inescapable fact of mortality. But do we make our burdens heavier by trying to carry them alone?
The Lord has promised us His help if we will turn to Him. Author Camille Fronk Olson writes, “Each of us is personally invited to come unto Christ and trust Him to heal us.” She testifies that “by accepting His invitation to come to Him, we find the way to resolve every one of our problems. We are not talking about temporary, Band-Aid treatments but eternal solutions.”
With such help available, why continue to be weighed down? The Lord has promised to lighten our burdens and give us rest if we take His yoke upon us. This perceptive and hope-filled book reminds us that the only real and eternal solution to our problems is to believe in His promise — and shows us how to take Him at His word.
I just finished this book last night. It was absolutely the book I needed to give me perspective on my own life's challenges. The author uses the scriptures to teach about our responsibility of shouldering our burdens by taking His yoke and following Him. This book explained this concept in a way that opened my eyes to how the Savior is already helping me. I highly recommend it for anyone facing a difficult challenge or even facing up to life's little challenges that come to us daily.
