Mormon women--Religious life; Christian life--Mormon authors
"My greatest purpose for writing this book is to offer women like myself a handful of thoughts that might uplift and enrich, open minds and hearts, and give us something to think about.
My personal struggles and insights are not necessarily any more profound than those of any other woman, but I believe they illustrate typical patterns of opposition and trial that we can all relate to and learn from at some level. While many of the thoughts in this book are related to my experiences as a mother, my hope is that each thought I have to offer will contain a tidbit of value for every woman who might read it-old or young, married or single, with children or without.
No matter our differences in personality, opportunities, or challenges, we're all women. We all have tender hearts, strong spirits, and a desire to do the best we can with what we have to work with. We're all daughters of God. We're all trying to get to the same place. And we're all struggling in one way or another."
Having sold over 500,000 books, author Anita Stansfield is one of the most widely read women in the Church. This tender gift book offers an up-close look at the woman behind the best-selling novels, and the priceless lessons she has learned along the way. [from publisher's web site]
