Book Summary:

Nephi, that great hero of the Book of Mormon, is often viewed as a pinnacle of devotion: steadfastly faithful, profoundly spiritual, and unwaveringly obedient. But the beautiful passage of scripture often referred to as Nephi’s Psalm reveals that, like all of us, Nephi faced his own inner struggles in this mortal existence. His heartfelt introspection demonstrates that amid the trials of life, discouragement can burden us all—but it can also be overcome.

In My God Hath Been My Support: Seven Keys to Understanding and Enduring Personal Trials, author David T. Morgan looks to the words of Nephi’s Psalm to offer an inspiring message of hope and a loving call to action. Featuring tools and ideas on how to overcome adversity, increase feelings of self-worth, and endure the ups and downs of mortality, this scripture-based roadmap to a more fulfilling life is a joyous invitation to learn from Nephi how to transform sorrow into joy.

I love reading fiction, especially clean romance and clean young adult titles. I’d spend all my time reading just those kinds of books but I know I should branch out and read other good books. So this year I have set a goal that at least 10% of what I read be personal development and self-improvement books. So one in every ten titles will be something non-fiction and likely LDS related.

My God Hath Been My Support is one of those books. I was actually surprised at how much I ended up loving this book. There are a few beliefs I have head throughout my life that he challenged and his words ultimately helped me to see the folly in my way of thinking. This book was very motivational for me and I found it very easy to relate to the way he taught and presented things.  Obviously, this is a book targetted at an LDS/Mormon audience. If you are part of that targetted audience I recommend you read this book.

This is a short book and a fast read but it’s packed full of great stuff!
