Christ's Gifts to Women/Heather B. Moore & Angela Eschler


   "At times, we as faithful Latter-day Saint women struggle to understand exactly who Christ is in our lives. We fail to comprehend the gifts he offers us as we strive to overcome the challenges we face. But Christ's great message to us is that he has overcome this world-He has given women great gifts that empower us and help us realize we are not alone."


   What a beautiful book. If you are a woman and struggling with who you are, or where you are going, you need to pick up this book and read it! They wove true stories of women from the bible who in their time suffered many trials, especially by being a woman. With Faith in Christ all things are made possible. No matter how far gone you think you are and don't feel like forgiveness will be yours, Look at the woman taken in adultery. As Christ put it in John 8:7 "He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her." We all have skeletons in our closets, but if we look to Christ, and hear his words "go, and sin no more" we can have the confidence to get up, brush ourselves off and move forward with Christ trusting us to do what is right. We may still have those days where forgiveness looks so far out of reach.......In this book it explains why it is not and how you can obtain the peace and comfort you need while being a woman in these Latter Days.
   Being out of work for so long and having some personal struggles right now in my life, this book has opened my eyes and gives me the strength to not give up and move on with my life, it could be worse. Personally I think bishops should have this book on hand to give women who come to them and are struggling. Please pick up this book and read it as often as you can! Learn about Christ's Gift to "YOU".
