Book Review: "We're With You: Counsel and Encouragement from Your Brethren"

Have you heard about the new book, "We're With You: Counsel and Encouragement from Your Brethren". Here is my Book Review of this great Counsel and Encouragement from our Prophet and Apostles!

Disclaimer: I received a free copy of the book in order to do the review of "We're With You". All opinions are 100 % mine! Click here to view the full disclosure.

When I was given the opportunity to review the book, "We're With You", I jumped at it!! Who wouldn't want to read a book full of encouragement and counsel from the leaders of the church?

I am the type of person who gets so excited as General Conference rolls around, because it means I get to receive instruction and inspiration.  As I read, this book I was filled with more hope and understanding.

The book, "We're With You", is 288 pages of excerpts from talks given to Young Adults, by the First Presidency and Quorum of The Twelve Apostles. Really though, the counsel and inspiration really applies to all of us. I found it very relateable myself and was touched by the Spirit as I read through it.

 Some of my favorite quotes were...

The book began with these inspiring words by our loving prophet! Being one of a kind is a GOOD thing!  Seriously, I love that the book started out this way! We are one of a kind, we have had our own experiences different from anyone else, which have helped to shape us.

As we read this book, we will each receive different insights! How wonderful is that!! We will receive just what we need.

Elder Stevenson, shared words of trust and relying upon the Lord. I don't know about you, but daily I need to have trust in the Lord.

The times that I have really felt the closest to my Savior, were during the most difficult times in my life. The times that I had to completely lay it all at his feet and rely and trust in him.

One of my favorite apostles to listen to is, President Uchtdorf. These words of his are so true! Sometimes we won't know the quick answers in our lives. It will take some studying on our part and relying on the words of God.

Do I recommend the book, "We're With You"?? ABSOLUTELY!! If you know someone who can't wait until it is General Conference time, this is definitely a book for them. If you know someone who could use some encouragement in their life, this book is for them. Don't we all need a little bit of encouragement and direction? So really, this book is for everyone ;)
