Shout Out for my friend Laurel's New Book: "He Loves Us and We Love Him: You've Memorized It, Now Live It."

This is the front cover of the new book my friend, Laurel has.
Check out the little description below: (AMAZING!)
From Laurel:
"He Loves Us and We Love Him: You've Memorized It, Now Live It."It's a new take on the YW Theme.And it went to press yesterday.I had the privilege of spending time with Sister Ardeth Kapp on this project (she even wrote the "Afterword" for the book.). On several Sunday afternoons last Spring, you could have found me in her home reading her journals from 1984-1986. It gave me a sense of all that was transpiring in the creation and "launch" of the YW theme. That experience, along with a lifetime of experiences, pushed me to finish this project that I suppose you could say has been in the works for 25 years (this November is the 25th Anniversary of the YW Theme...did you know that?)
We priced it low so it could get into the hands of as many girls as possible.I feel pretty passionately about the message.I want to share it with them.In print and in person.
Pre-order here:
Quotes from the book:
FAITH"The reality is that faith isn’t about me. It’s about Him. And the Lord Jesus Christ has a pretty impeccable past record…not just in my life but in the countless lives and experiences of God’s children. That is why if my faith is really centered in HIM, then I’m always okay. Always."
DIVINE NATURE"Regardless of who your parents are or how they have chosen to raise you, you have inherited qualities from your Heavenly Parents that are 'in your blood.' It's just who you are."
INDIVIDUAL WORTH"Trust that God has a divine mission waiting for you and JUST for you. Trust that He, even now, is orchestrating details of your life to help you fulfill what you were sent to this earth to perform."
KNOWLEDGE"The most important knowledge you will gain in this life will be the knowledge that is put into your heart and your mind through life's experience by the power of the Holy Ghost."
CHOICE & ACCOUNTABILITY"Every choice has a consequence. But, the Lord loves you enough and trusts you enough to let YOU choose throughout your life. And a daughter of God who understands who she is has the power within her to make good choices and then gets to enjoy the consequences of those choices."
GOOD WORKS"One of the characteristics of God's daughters is that we have a natural inclination to nurture other people. We want to love them and serve them and help them. It's one of my favorite things about being a girl. And it's one of the things that makes a girl beautiful."
INTEGRITY"That is the epitome of integrity--not simply acting right when you have the chance to act wrong, but acting right when you have the chance to act...right."
VIRTUE"The culminating experience for a daughter of God who lives the values is being as close as possible to her Father in Heaven and to her Savior as she enters the doors of God's Holy House--the temple."
