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."
