‘Time Out Classics’ are a perfect way to brighten your day
Three small books that inspire, uplift, and encourage
Everything I Need to Know I Learned at Home – John Bytheway ($10.99, Hardback)
Sometimes the smallest phrases we use in everyday language can be eternal principles that get us through our lives. In this book, John Bytheway makes an inspiring and insightful connection between everyday phrases spoken at home and principles of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Habits of Happiness – Wendy Ulrich ($10.99, Hardback)
When happiness doesn’t enter our days automatically, and when life isn’t going as planned, sometimes we are quick to equivocally gauge our overall happiness in life. In this book, filled with scientific research, practical advice, and engaging anecdotes, Dr. Wendy Ulrich invites readers to look at happiness in a new way.
Making It Through the Middle – Emily Freeman ($10.99, Hardback)
Life is full of challenges, and it’s easy to feel the end of our trials will never arrive. But is it the end we should be spending so much time focusing on? In this book, Emily Freeman shares six lessons, and various personal experiences to assist readers in staying strong when they are right in the middle of a hard time.
About Time Out Classics: For over 10 years, ‘Time Out for Women’ has been inviting faithful women to step away from the daily routine and make space for themselves and their spiritual lives. ‘Time Out Classics’ are written by various presenters from the Time Out for Women events series. For more information, you can visit TOFW.com.
I’ve always loved the idea of ‘Time Out for Women.’ Women are natural nurturers, but too often, our well runs dry, and a spiritual “girls’ night out” is just what we need. However, not everyone lives close enough to attend an event in person. These Time Out Classics are a perfect substitute.
Each book contained an uplifting and helpful message. Everything I Need to Know I Learned at Home applies spiritual lessons to common parenting advice. Habits of Happiness contains great tips for cultivating joy in our lives by focusing on our strengths rather than our weaknesses and remembering to be grateful. My favorite book of the three was Making It Through the Middle – perhaps because I am in the middle of a challenging trial. The author talks about the many journeys described in scriptures and the lessons that can be learned from them. It has changed the way I approach those stories in my scripture reading. It has also taught to me to rely on and appreciate the atonement of Jesus Christ more.
I enjoyed each of these books, and I look forward to discovering more titles in the series.
