The little things we do on a daily basis don’t just matter—they can make all the difference. Intentional daily acts focused on covenant-keeping will bind us to the Savior as we are deliber- ate and determined to follow Him in small and simple ways. Drawing upon the teachings and lives of ancient and modern prophets, author Jennifer Brinkerhoff Platt identifies patterns of truth that encourage increased commitment to covenant relationships while diminishing the binding grip of the adversary. Included are chapters on the need to be consistent in covenant- keeping, on recognizing Satan’s tactics and lies, on undoing self-destructive routines, on the role of the Spirit to help us both feel and follow promptings, and on the power of daily scripture study and prayer in establishing habits that reinforce and sup- port our commitment to the Savior.

REVIEW

A powerful book focused on helping the LDS reader (members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints) focus on keeping the covenants (two-way promises) made with the Lord. Platt writes beautifully of some of the things she has learned on her life's journey especially regarding the importance of covenants and our daily efforts to keep those covenants.  She provides wise counsel on ways to put these promises and Christ more fully into our daily lives by living with greater intent.  Not necessarily changing everything we do, although bad habits do need to change, but finding ways to look at the ordinary things through a more Christ-focused lens. A great book full of great advice and thoughts on living life to the fullest by living our covenant more completely. Highly recommended.
