Sisters take care of each other, watch out for each other, comfort each other, and are there for each other through thick and thin, observes Sister Bonnie L. Oscarson, Young Women general president.
In this delightful and inspiring book, Sister Oscarson encourages all women to look beyond differences in age, culture, and circumstance in order to better nurture and serve one another. She explains that all women young or old, married or single, working in an office or running a home have unique talents and gifts to share. Focusing on the boundless blessings that Latter-day Saint women enjoy, Sister Oscarson urges women throughout the Church to live and inspire others in ways that realize their greatest potential.
Need a last minute Mother's Day gift? This book is full of beautiful insights and thoughtful passages of love. Reminding us all that our differences are what makes us special in God's eyes. Who are we to criticize or judge others? I love listening to Sister Oscarson's talks. She has a presence about her that is very inspiring and I can tell that she is a remarkable woman. I truly enjoyed this book.
"We need to care for each other, comfort each other, and [be] there for each other."
"As we look beyond our differences in age, culture, and circumstance to nurture and serve one another, we will be filled with the pure love of Christ..."
