With his positive attitude and customary wit, Elder Nelson gives us hope toward an eternal life with our Father in Heaven, if we will but endure. Perfection Pending will be a valuable addition to any Latter-day Saint's library.


Hope in Our Hearts


Few people understand the human heart better
than Elder Russell M. Nelson, who, prior to his
call into the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles,
was a pioneering cardiac surgeon. Today, as an
Apostle, he understands our hearts in a new
way — most particularly, he understands our
need for hope in our hearts. As a special witness
of Jesus Christ, he testifies powerfully of where
that hope can be found.

In Hope in Our Hearts, Elder Nelson brings his
remarkable grasp of the gospel and his unique
medical training to bear in eighteen outstanding
messages that focus on family and relationships,
Church doctrine, and personal growth. The book
includes such classic addresses as: “Nurturing
Marriage,” “Jesus Christ — The Master Healer,”
and “The Magnificence of Man,” as well as some
talks that aren’t widely available, such as “The
Family: The Hope for the Future of Nations,” a
landmark message given at the World Congress
on Families V. An introduction written especially
for this book includes important experiences, lessons,
and photographs from his life.

“All of God’s children encounter challenges and
frustrations in life,” writes Elder Nelson. “That is part of our mortal experience. We also know that truly faithful people are produced not by fleeting flashes of exuberant effort but by continuous consistency in keeping the commandments of God. As we follow Jesus Christ, pressing forward one step at a time, we can do all
that the Lord would have us do.”
