Finding the Way Back – Forgiving Hearts

Laurel thought life had dealt her its worst blow when her marriage fell apart. For almost a year, she worked to put herself back together. These efforts culminated in a new job in a new place. Away from all the reminders of pain and humiliation, she can begin again. But what if her attempt to escape doesn’t take her away from Colton, but brings her to him instead?

Colton is reaping the sorrow and misery he deserves. For the worst of reasons, he hurt the woman he loves. Laurel’s heart won’t heal easily or ever without God’s help. Will she give him the chance to regain her trust? Or will he be forced to live the rest of his life without her?

Forget Me Not by President Dieter F. Ucthdorf

Inspired by the five petals of the tiny forget-me-not flower, President Dieter F. Uchtdorf reminds us of five things we will be wise to never forget:

  5. To know that the Lord loves each of us infinitely.

A wonderful gift for any woman in your life!

The Remarkable Soul of a Woman by Dieter F. Ucthdorf 

If you are feeling overwhelmed with change, challenges, or checklists, you may wonder how you can partake now of God’s happiness and find your pathway to peace, hope, and joy.

With loving insight, President Dieter F. Uchtdorf addresses two attributes that contribute to our Heavenly Father’s perfect happiness – the power of creation and service with compassion. As a treasured daughter of our Heavenly Father, you can develop those remarkable abilities as well as find happiness in the journey.

By listening to the Spirit, you can come to realize that creating is not just done with paint, pen, or pottery, and compassionate service is more than a casserole or a card. As you bring something into existence that has never been before and as you serve others – even in small ways – you cannot help but participate in the wonder that is God’s joy.

In The Remarkable Soul of a Woman, President Uchtdorf’s timely thoughts on creating and being compassionate will buoy you up, give you strength, and help you realize what a great power for good you truly are.


Your Happily Ever After by Dieter F. Uchtdorf

Sometimes we need a reminder that life was never all sunshine and roses for fairy-tale princesses. Before the true love s kisses and happily ever afters, there were poisoned apples, spindle pricks, and impossible tasks. Speaking to the princesses of our Heavenly King, President Dieter F. Uchtdorf compares our challenges to those faced by famous fairy-tale heroines.

Recounting Belle’s captivity, Cinderella’s servitude, and the miller’s daughter’s sacrifices, President Uchtdorf emphasizes that each princess had to overcome adversity before she reached her happily ever after.

Beautifully designed and illustrated, Your Happily Ever After is an inspiring and uplifting message that will encourage latter-day daughters of God to focus on His plan, to find happiness in service, and to fully embrace the blessings of the gospel.
