Review: What Makes Us Sisters by Bonnie L. Oscarson

What a cute little book! Isn't it?

Here's the official book description:

"Sisters take care of each other, watch out for each other, comfort each other, and are there for each other through thick and thin," observes Sister Bonnie L. Oscarson, Young Women general president.

In this delightful and inspiring book, Sister Oscarson encourages all women to look beyond differences in age, culture, and circumstance in order to better nurture and serve one another. She explains that all women—young or old, married or single, working in an office or running a home—have unique talents and gifts to share. Focusing on the boundless blessings that Latter-day Saint women enjoy, Sister Oscarson urges women throughout the Church to live and inspire others in ways that realize their greatest potential.

My Review:

This is an adorable book! I love the covers--both the paper jacket that wraps around with has the adorable photo you see above, but also the red and light blue polka dotted hardback underneath. The photography inside is excellently done, each page artwork in itself. But of course, the best part is the love and encouragement, words originally shared by Sister Bonnie L. Oscarson in a Conference talk. Though all her words and examples can be found elsewhere, I love having her gems in a handy and beautiful book, perfect for a quick spiritual thought for visiting teaching, Young Women's, or Relief Society. It would make a perfect gift for anyone you consider a sister.
