I LOVE little booklets like this!
Quick reads for an inspirational lift during the day!
"You never know when you will be called upon to exercise the priesthood."
"David J. Ridges shares examples of priesthood power in action and addresses ways to strive to be ready at all times to administer to the sick and give blessings of counsel and comfort."
A couple of my favorite quotes:
"Worthiness does not imply nor require perfection. But it does mean striving to live in accordance with gospel standards."
"Having the authority does not necessarily guarantee that we also have the power of this wonderful priesthood."
"Faith plays an important role in unlocking the power of the priesthood."
There are SOME REALLY GREAT STORIES of faith being used during blessings.
This booklet will help men "gain confidence and increase preparation so that they can use the priesthood at a moment's notice."
PERFECT FOR FATHER'S DAY!
