Today I am thankful for....

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.

That is the description on Deseret Book.com.  This is my description:  Uplifting, inspiring, comforting, personal, and loving.  My sweet friend Kristie gave this book to me for my birthday.  I have read it 3 times since then, and I am sure will read it many many more.  It is just the conference talk, but the way it is presented in the book just helped me get so much more out of it, than just reading it out of the Ensign.  AND it just seems more personal coming from the cute little book.  Who knows maybe it is just me, but today I am thankful for it and the message inside of it.
