I sometimes struggle reading spiritual related help books. Because the working of the spirit can be so individualized I feel like authors sometime struggle to offer practical help for real world problems. The value of this book is the story of real people and their experiences that can bridge that gap of finding practical application of spiritual help in real life crisis. The stories of the people in this book are tenderly cared for in the hands of the author. There struggles might as well be my struggles and seeing them find the blessings of Heavenly Father in crisis helps me see them in my life.

The sub-title of this book is 'building memorials of faith from financial crisis.'
And WOW! What helps this book gives...
Even if the only thing you get out of this book is to know that you are not alone in your trials...it will be enough...
The author tells her own story and shares with us stories from other families...
AMAZING stories of people who were let go from their jobs because of the recession and who, with the help of the Lord, persevered, moved forward and strengthened their faith.
Sometimes the families went months or even years before finding a steady job.
Sometimes families were torn apart as the husband moved to take a new job and the wife was left behind to try to sell the house in the falling economy.
Sometimes the husband found a new job to only be let go from that job leaving him facing once again the pain and depression from not being able to provide for his family.
Many times the families were given gifts of food and money.
Always the families found greater testimony in the Lord's tender mercies as they built memorials of faith.
My favorite quote/scripture from the book:
"But if from thence thou shalt seek the Lord thy God, thou shalt find him, if thou seek him with all thy heart and with all they soul. When thou art in tribulation, and all these things are come upon thee, even in the latter days, if thou turn to the Lord thy God, and shalt be obedient unto his voice, (For the Lord thy God is a merciful God;) he will not forsake thee, neither destroy thee, nor forget the covenant of thy fathers which he sware unto them." ~ Deuteronomy 4:29-31
A FANTASTIC book if you are going through a financial crisis!
A PERFECT book if you know someone else who could use your help but until now didn't know how to help them.
This book will give you insights in so many things...

There are many things in a person's life that can cause his or her faith to be tested. I loved the way the author brought in real-life experiences, along with scriptures and talks, to help the reader understand that it is possible to have hope and faith during these hard times. She mostly talked about financial difficulties and followed the journeys of a few different families.
There was one quote that I loved: "Stone by stone, we build spiritual memorials that mark our personal foundation of faith over time and experience." She had talked about physical markers earlier in the book. Certain big events in a person's life or in history might have a memorial so that we can remember it--the site of a deadly accident or Valley Forge, for example. However, it is just as important to mark major spiritual experiences as well, especially those that help us grow and strengthen us. It seems that most of the physical memorials mark difficult and sad times and it should be that way with our spiritual memorials.
I enjoyed the way this information was presented. It was told in a way that was easy to personalize to each reader. There are some great examples to follow and steps to take to improve the lives of each person who reads this book.
