it was amazing

I bought this book for the section, "Of Souls, Symbols and Sacraments," Elder Holland's remarkable BYU talk on chastity. It is definitive. EVERYONE should read it. FINALLY, someone addresses the WHY instead of just the what. I so wish I had heard of this as a teenager and certainly before marriage and children. Just puts everything into the beautiful, meaningful context for which it is intended. It will definitely be required reading for my older teens.

The rest of the book is also edifying and inspiring. I found Elder Holland's wife, Pat, to be so wonderful. She's REAL and easy to relate to, yet she's the spiritually gigantic wife of an apostle! Her chapters are ones to read over and over again throughout motherhood.
