Overview

In 21 Principles, Elder Scott encourages us to search for true principles as we seek spiritual knowledge, explaining that principles are concentrated truth, packaged for application to a wide variety of circumstances. He teaches that, as we resolutely follow correct principles, we forge a strength of character that will be a resource in times of need.

This book is so POWERFUL! Elder Scott teaches: "As you seek spiritual knowledge, search for principles. Principles are concentrated truth, packaged for application to a wide variety of circumstances." Here are a few of the principles taught in the book: Access personal revelation Act upon that revelation Accept God's will Understand that adversity is a necessary part of life Hold true to correct principle Value the sanctity of womanhood Personal stories help illustrate each principle... My favorite is the story of where Elder Scott took 100 little circles and wrote a message one word at a time to his wife. Then he scooped them up and put them in an envelope hoping to get a laugh from his wife. After his wife passed away Elder Scott found these little circles carefully pasted onto a page where the message could be enjoyed over and over again. You can just feel the love Elder Scott has for his wife. Each principle if studies and applied will bring you greater happiness. Elder Scott ends with this powerful testimony: "I testify that as you are prayerful and seek the guidance of the Spirit, you can identify over a period of time important things the Lord wants you to accomplish....There may be some challenging growth experiences and some sadness, but your life will be crowned with success and joy." A truly wonderful book!
