Love this great little book!

"Being of good cheer makes it possible for us to turn all of our sunsets into sunrises.
With good cheer, carrying our cross can be our ladder to happiness. When Jesus comes into our lives, cheer lights the way. How powerful and comforting is the Savior’s declaration, “In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33.)"

Elder Ashton's remarks and his voice have always been comforting to me. I had the opportunity to learn more about him from his friend Ronald Millett today. Bro. Millett worked at Deseret Book for 30 years and he and his wife Susan spent much time with the Ashtons. The world is full of interesting people!

I always loved Marvin J. Ashton. His talks were always so down-to-earth. Therefore, I was anxious to read this book. It is filled with so much wisdom I want to apply in my life.
Just what I needed! I miss Elder Ashton. He was always to gentle and inspiring. This book is the next-best thing. A great pick-me-up, especially the first several chapters.
One great book, for anyone going throught tough times, that has depression or just needs a pick me up. Great reminder of what it is to truly, be of good cheer.
Just What the world needs, more happiness, less discouragement.
