One By One

A special thanks to Deseret Book, for providing me with a copy of this beautifully written book: One by One, by David A. Bednar.
This book by Elder David A. Bednar has been on my mind the last couple of weeks. One by One is a beautiful collection of personal stories & examples from the Book of Mormon and the Bible that show a pattern of how the Savior's life focused on serving the One.

In his book Elder Bednar shares several personal experiences from his own life that illustrate how he was put in situations to help, encourage and love the One. Heavenly Father loves each and everyone of us, and because of that simple truth, He is acutely aware of us as individuals. He knows when we need help, and will orchestrate an encounter to help us find our way back to Him. 

“I believe that in the work of the Lord there is no such thing as a coincidence. The worth of souls is great in the sight of God.”
I absolutely loved this book, it's one that captivates you from the very first page and has you in tears by the next. Elder Bednar also shares with us how we can be an instrument of God, like the Savior, to use in reaching out to the Ones

My favorite part of this book was getting to see the tremendous importance that each individual is to our Heavenly Father, and the great lengths He goes to bless each of His children (sometimes in meek ways, and other times through grand miraculous events). 

If you're looking for a meaningful gift for a loved one this holiday season, I highly recommend this book!
