21 Principles by Jeffrey R. Holland Blog Tour

Blurb from the book:

“As you seek spiritual knowledge, search for principles,” counsels Elder Richard G. Scott. “Principles are concentrated truth, packaged for application to a wide variety of circumstances.”

In this exciting book, Elder Scott offers 21 principles distilled from his life experiences. These “concentrated truths” will help you understand more fully how to be guided by the Spirit. Elder Scott's brief explanations open the way for your own discovery and exploration.
“I bear witness that Jesus Christ knows you personally,” Elder Scott writes. “He will provide answers to every difficult problem in your life as you trust Him and do all you can to understand and apply His doctrine and strive to live by the Spirit.” 21 Principles will be a valuable tool in that quest.

About the author:

Elder Richard G. Scott, was called as a member of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in October 1988. He had served in the First Quorum of the Seventy since 1977 and was a member of the presidency of that quorum for five years. He holds a B.S. degree in mechanical engineering and completed post-graduate work in nuclear engineering. Prior to his call as a General Authority, he worked on the staff of Admiral Hyman Rickover developing military and private nuclear power reactors. Elder Scott and his wife, Jeanene Watkins Scott (deceased), are the parents of seven children.

My Review:

I really enjoyed this book by Elder Scott.  Each principle is it's own chapter and they are relatively short yet full of wonderful advice and help to become closer to the Spirit.  Elder Holland relates some personal experiences that helped illustrate his point.  The book lifted me up and made me want to be a better person.  Elder Holland encourages his readers in a kind and straight forward way how to grow closer to the Spirit.  A wonderful read for anyone wanting a quick spiritual boost from a single chapter or for anyone striving to live closer to the Spirit!
I received a copy of this book for free.  This is my honest review.

You can pick up your own copy of 21 Principles via Deseret Book.

Happy Reading!!!
