    One thought on “Better Than You Think You Are”

    1. Ardeth Green Kapp is truly in tune with how others feel and what it is like to suffer trials. She also knows how to pull out of herself and seek out others to lend a compassionate hand to. She teaches why it is not good to sit in a pity bowl. I have always loved her and the words of advise and wisdom she has to offer. She was the General Young Women's Pres. When I was in Young Women's. I have always admired her strength and courage.

    2. This was a very good book. It reminded me to live my own life, that I'm better than I sometimes think I am. We shouldn't live cookie-cutter lives, where we try to fit into someone else's mold. It is written by an LDS author who shared many of her own experiences.

    3. This was given to me by my sweet friend who lifts me up with her influence! She is going through chemo right now, and I miss seeing her at school. Her inscription in my book is as uplifting to me as anything the author wrote. I hadn't read it until this weekend, but it's a week I needed the reminder of it's overall message. The anniversaries of both my parents' heart attacks, my mom's death, and my divorce finalization are all within a 2 week period, and I have an added feeling of disappointment [...]

    4. This book was a great pick-me-up! I love Ardeth Kapp's writing, it's filled with personal stories from her life and she is always optimistic. I think the chapter I enjoyed the most was entitles "Cherish The Time"; it was a good reminder to take the time to slow down and enjoy life, rather than try to hurriedly get to the next phase of your life, which you assume will be better. She suggests that in order to help us do this, we should "Stop, look, and listen" (page 78). I really recommend this fo [...]

    5. I had a hard time getting into this book. It should have only taken me a day or 2 at most to read it. But I've been reading it for a couple of weeks. I forced myself to finish. But interestingly enough, it was worth it. The last chapter was what I needed today in my life. It is the answer my heart is seeking. But it was slow reading for me for some reason. Odd, because I really love Ardeth Kapp & have loved her other writing. So I'm not sure why this one was so hard to read for me.

    6. I really enjoyed this book. It made me feel uplifted and like I had a grand purpose for my life. It was a church book, but didn't come off as too preachy. There was the right mixture of stories/personal experiences and gospel thoughts.

    7. I read this again when I'm feeling inadequate or unworthy. It helps me realize I'm not alone, that I have a Heavenly Father who loves me, guides me and answers my prayers. I continue with renewed confidence and with the knowledge that with Heavenly Father's help, I am better!

    8. This book was written about ten years ago, but no matter, the truths it presents are still relevant today. It is a great, quick, positive read for anyone who ever feels discouraged, distracted or weighted down with cares.
