For my Relief Society meeting today we discussed these two talks from General Conference:

A House of Sequential Order by Vai Sikahema. You can read it here.

&

One Percent Better by Michael Dunn. You can read it here.

Those are great talks to begin 2022!

The RS teacher mentioned a book I’ve never heard of before, shown above. She says that she’s heard that General Authorities hand it out to everyone they can, like a missionary tract. So I decided to add it to my “to-read” list for the new year and share the whole list here.

Here’s a description of Planted:

“For all its advances, our secular age has also weakened ties to religious belief and affiliation, and Latter-day Saints have not been immune. In recent years, many faithful Church members have encountered challenging aspects of Church history, belief, or practice. Feeling isolated, alienated, or misled, some struggle to stay. Some simply leave. Many search for a reliable and faithful place to work through their questions. The abundance of information online can leave them frustrated. Planted offers those who struggle—and those who love them—practical ways to stay planted in the gospel of Jesus Christ.”- deseretbook.com

“An entirely honest and entirely affirming treatment of the challenges facing LDS believer. Mason brings a historian’s training and sophistication together with a disciple’s compassion and sensitivity to bear on an urgent topic. The result is a provocative and inspiring framework for faith.”—Fiona and Terryl Givens, authors of The Crucible of Doubt: Reflections on the Quest for Faith

“Patrick Mason has carefully listened to the diverse community of Latter-day Saints. He has heard the love and the faith as well as the bewilderment and the pain. This book is his moving response. His deeply intelligent call to mutual understanding and his compelling invitation to faith and fellowship have had a transformative effect on me.”—David Holland, associate professor of North American religious history, Harvard Divinity School

Sounds sooooo good right?! I’m going to read it! Who’s with me?

Then someone in the same class today gave me another suggestion by sharing this title below with the class:

Now for some books I started last year (or, ahem, the year before) and didn’t finish:

Marilla of Green Gables: A Novel
Hind's Feet on High Places

Then these I found today look so good as well:

Believing Is Seeing: A Physicist Explains How Science Shattered His Atheism and Revealed the Necessity of Faith
The Power of a Praying® Mom: Powerful Prayers for You and Your Children

For my homeopathy studies I want to delve into the three volumes of John Henry Clarke’s Dictionary of Practical Materia Medica. The first volume of the three volumes is shown below:

Paperback A Dictionary of Practical Materia Medical (v. 1) Book

For more of my holistic health studies I want to finish this one below, also one I started last year.

If I finish that one I want to dive into this one:

Happy reading in 2022 everyone! What are you planning to read this year? I’d love to hear your plans, so please comment below!
