A Quiet Heart...Review

About the book:
"Of all the needs of the human heart, surely none is greater than the need for peace."

So writes Patricia Holland in
A Quiet Heart, and her words resonate with all who find themselves in turmoil. The truth is, no one escapes this life without plenty of trials; even in times of prosperity and happiness, we can get mired in the busy-ness of living and lose track of the soul-centering principles of the gospel.

A Quiet Heart can help us find our way back. Its gentle, faith-filled tone immediately soothes the troubled mind and invites the reader to seek solutions and comfort from their one true Source. As Sister Holland assures us, "God will not fail nor forsake us."

I love this book. I love this book so much that I keep it with my scriptures. The Hollands were BYU presidents when I was at school and I have so much respect for both of them. Sister Holland was always so gracious and refined.

Her book is a wonderful, easy read. Thought-provoking. Her insights to us as women, and her encouragement of sincere prayer, and establishing a strong relationship with the Lord are incredible.

Every woman should read this book.
