I never cease to be amazed by how the Lord can motivate and direct the length and breadth of His kingdom and yet have time to provide inspiration concerning one individual.” – President Thomas S. Monson

President Thomas S. Monson is a master at teaching through parables and meaningful experiences, and we’ve all had a message from his life inspire and connect with us. In the new book, Consider the Blessings, beautiful photography has been combined with 50 of President Monson’s favorite true accounts.

Some of the stories in this new volume include:

Called to Serve

I Will See Her Again

Stranded in the Snow

Help Is A Prayer Away

You’re My Primary Boy

Consider the Blessings (Deseret Book, $22.99, hardcover) is now available at Deseret Book, and at other select retailers.

About the author: President Thomas S. Monson was set apart as President of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints on February 3, 2008, after having served in the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles and the First Presidency of the Church for more than forty-four years. In the five decades since his call as an apostle at age thirty-six, he has become known for the personal accounts he often uses to illustrate his teachings.


Consider the Blessings: True Accounts of God’s Hand in Our Lives is a beautiful keepsake that I know my family will cherish. The photography is exquisite and illustrates each story perfectly.

As I read through the book, I learned two things about President Monson: first, that he actively looked for ways to serve people, and second, that he cultivated the ability to recognize the Spirit by never hesitating to follow promptings. It is those two qualities that molded him into the wonderful, loving man that he is today.

Consider the Blessings is a great resource to have on hand for Family Home Evening, talks, spiritual thoughts and lessons. It would make a wonderful Christmas gift for your loved ones this year.

Share your thoughts.
