How do you help a struggling teen, an overwhelmed mother, a teacher who feels inadequate, a divorced man struggling with feelings of self-worth? How can we find our way out of the darkness that so often engulfs us in mortality? The Lord has shown the way. The pattern he used to restore the gospel in a world filled with darkness provides a perfect model for our own spiritual and social development and for dealing with our most difficult and perplexing challenges. In his first book in more than twenty years written specifically for Latter-day Saints, Dr. Stephen R. Covey explores the six transcendent events of the Restoration and recommends strategies for internalizing each one of them.
· The First Vision
· The restoration of the gospel in the form of the Book of Mormon
· The restoration of the priesthood
· The restoration of the Church
· The restoration of the keys to save the living and the dead
· The restoration of the temple ordinances
But Dr. Covey goes far beyond a historical and doctrinal perspective, demonstrating the personal significance of those events and their sequence in our lives today. If, in solving your problems, youre interested in better understanding the pattern of the Lords solution to the worlds ills, youll appreciate the inspiring insights in this masterwork for Latter-day Saints.
