Striving to Become a More Holy Person

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH -- What ensures contentment in life? Is it having material possessions, being able to gratify our appetites, commanding the adulation of others, or gathering power and influence?

Renowned author Robert L. Millet examines that question and suggests a possible answer in "More Holiness Give Me" (Deseret Book, $17.95). In his insightful and persuasive way, Millet draws upon his experiences as a husband, father, gospel scholar, teacher and Church leader to describe the fruits of truly successful living, focusing our hearts on the ways we draw closer to the Lord, strengthening our relationship with the Holy Ghost, and laying claim to the joy and blessings that the Lord delights to bestow on his faithful people.

In "More Holiness Give Me," he addresses such subjects as avoiding the tendency to pause on plateaus, being in the world but not of it, striving for "seven-day-a-week" holiness, improving the quality of our prayers, and dealing with despair. He shares ideas to help us avoid losing track of the things that matter most while identifying the fruits of holiness that can be ours.

Millet writes, "If we will call upon the Lord and ask him regularly to bless us to feel what we ought to feel and see what we ought to see, we will sense the divine hand upon our shoulder, nudging us onward and upward, all the days of our lives."

About the Author: Robert L. Millet is professor of ancient scripture and former dean of Religious Education at Brigham Young University. He has taught seminary and was an institute director in the Church Education System. A prolific speaker and writer, he has most recently published "Alive in Christ," "Life After Death," "When a Child Wanders," and "Within Reach." He and his wife Shauna are parents of six children.
