Left Standing

by Mason Wells, Tyler Beddoes, and Billy Hallowell

“I decided to be a survivor, 
not a victim.”

Most people can’t imagine experiencing a terrorist attack, let alone multiple bombings.

Left with third-degree burns, shrapnel wounds, and a shaken spirit, Mason Wells chose to leave behind his anger and hate in the face of terrorism and instead turn to God. Mason recounts how his faith eventually allowed him to forgive the men behind the attacks that nearly cost him his life and the lives of so many others.

This miraculous true story will change how you see your own struggles and teach you the true power of forgiveness, perseverance, and love.

I am always impressed with those who can forgive a terrible injustice that happened to them. This book will leave you with a hope that you can love and forgive and continue to move forward 
despite your own trials.

Peace for a Palestinian

by Sahar Qumsiyeh

Sahar Qumsiyeh was born into a loving Christian family in Jerusalem and raised in Beit Sahour, near Bethlehem. Growing up in a country torn apart by political upheaval, Sahar struggled with feelings of hopelessness and anger as she watched her people being persecuted, tormented, and even killed.

As a young adult, Sahar received a scholarship to an American university. While there, she was baptized into The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. But staying true to her new faith was put to the test when Sahar returned home to Palestine.

In Peace for a Palestinian, Sahar shares her experience desperately searching for peace and joy only to find that true peace lies not in external resolution but in following the Savior. As she explains, "We may live in a place with barriers, checkpoints, and restrictions, but we can feel liberated by His Atonement."

Whether your own obstacles are great or small, Sahar's message will help you discover that the true source of peace and comfort is the same for all of us.

This book is AMAZING!
I cannot even imagine living where there are checkpoints to get anywhere--even to go to church.
Sahar is an incredible person filled with hope and love.
Her story is remarkable -- May we all become more like her.
