21 Principles: Divine Truths to Help You Live by the Spirit {Deseret Book Review and GIVEAWAY!}


“As you seek spiritual knowledge, search for principles,” counsels Elder Richard G. Scott. “Principles are concentrated truth, packaged for application to a wide variety of circumstances.”
In this exciting book, Elder Scott offers 21 principles distilled from his life experiences. These “concentrated truths” will help you understand more fully how to be guided by the Spirit. Elder Scott's brief explanations open the way for your own discovery and exploration.
“I bear witness that Jesus Christ knows you personally,” Elder Scott writes. “He will provide answers to every difficult problem in your life as you trust Him and do all you can to understand and apply His doctrine and strive to live by the Spirit.” 21 Principles will be a valuable tool in that quest.
As we seek for spiritual knowledge and growth we are searching for principles to guide us alone our way.  Elder Richard G. Scott of the Quorum of the 12 Apostles calls these principles "concentrated truth, packaged for application to a wide variety of circumstances.  A true principle makes decisions clear even under the most confusing and challenging circumstances."  Elder Scott has put forth tremendous effort to gather all of the principles he has learned and provide them for our personal study... He continues, "Principles are anchors of safety...They will help you have confidence in new and unfamiliar circumstances.  They will provide you protection in life's storms of adversity."  We can reach worthy goals and objectives when we stick closely to correct principles and this book can provide a starting point in your personal scripture study!  There are, obviously, 21 Principles of study each with scriptural truth, historical background, personal stories, and how to follow this principle in todays world.  One of the best parts?  Each chapter ends with a real awesome "you can do this" pep talk!  Not to be missed:  The Conclusion.  It is Elder Scott's testimony - don't skip this part!  It is humbling and motivating.

I enjoyed Elder Scott's book immensely and I think you will too!  Read it as a novel...or read it as a topical scripture study.  This book is a valuable source of spiritual learning.  21 Principles currently retails as a hardback at Deseret Book for $15.29 and as a Bookshelf eBook for $9.99.  You can also get the combo for $20.28.


Don't forget you can download the Bookshelf App completely free (and get several free eBooks to get you started!)

I had the thought that this might make an excellent Father's Day Gift!  Just saying...  ;)
