Times of trouble. We all have them. As Elder Jeffrey R. Holland writes, “One of the unfailing facts of mortal life is the recurring presence of trouble. . . . When these difficult days (and nights!) come—and they will—it will help us to remember that ‘it must needs be,’ that in the grand councils of heaven before the world was, we agreed to such a time of challenge and refinement. We were taught then that facing, resolving, and enduring troublesome times was the price we would pay for progress. And we were committed to progress eternally.”

A large percentage of the psalms were written for such times of trouble. From petitions for relief to acknowledgments of God’s power, these psalms provide comfort, perspective, and spiritual solace when we are going through our own trials.

In this tender book, Elder Holland explores dozens of scriptural passages from the psalms, offering personal ideas and insights and sharing his testimony that “no matter what the trouble and trial of the day may be, we start and finish with the eternal truth that God is for us.”

Included with the book is a DVD, which includes a Q&A session with Elder Holland.
