To My Friends by Jeffrey R. Holland, LDS Blog Tour and Book Review

Book Summary:

"If you need a burden lifted, I want you to imagine I am in a personal, private, closed-door chat with you. I want to help you if I can." With those words, Elder Jeffrey R. Holland invites every reader of his latest book to become a friend, to receive instruction and encouragement, counsel and comfort.
Elder Holland addresses these powerful messages "to my friends who love the Lord," "to my friends who want to change," "to my friends who face opposition," and more. Each chapter begins with a beautifully designed quotation to help convey the message in an artistic way, making the book a lovely gift for friends to share. Throughout, Elder Holland's powerful witness of the Savior shines through, for, as he writes, "I am grateful for the greatest friend any of us could ever have, in time or eternity, the Lord Jesus Christ."

My Review:
This is a lovely hardbound collection of the best of Elder Jeffery R, Holland's talks! I was impressed with how nice the actual book looks. It is a beautiful with a color picture and quote at the beginning of each chapter/talk. That is my favorite part, the beautiful picture with an uplifting quote to ponder.  Elder Holland is known for being very direct and straight forward and that is what I love about him. This would make a lovely gift for anyone who enjoys his talks and who doesn't love his talks? If you want the best of Elder Holland's talks all in one spot where you don't have to go searching, then this is definitely the book for you!
