Have you ever thought about angels?
More specifically what powers do they have and how do they help us?

Find answers to these and many other questions about angels in the marvelous book!

Read stories and scriptures of people who have seen and been helped by angels.

Learn what prophets and apostles have to say on the subject of angels.

My favorite chapter was the one that tells how angels can help us overcome addictions, help us gain confidence, and help us during trials and severe hardships. They are there to help bear us up!

I loved this quote:

"Cultivate and be where the Spirit of the Lord is. Make sure that includes your own home or apartment, dictating the kind of art, music, and literature you keep there. If you are endowed, go to the temple as often as your circumstances allow. Remember that the temple arms you with God's power...puts His glory round about you, and gives His angels...charge over you."

We are told that angels are continually surrounding us... 
If we are in tune we will feel their light, love and power!
