Love Is a Verb: And Other Thoughts on the Greatest Commandment Viral Book This sentence of Mary Ellen Edmund's stands out: Does He [God] give us experiences that help us increase and magnify our talents so that we have more to share? I see that is what happened to me when my first husband was killed at age 24. I memorized the 23rd and 24 Psalms for comfort, and then thought the two together would make a good reading. When I went to BYU, Janie Thompson, who became my sister-in-law, gave me the opportunity to perform in a red-hot variety show, doing something unlikely, the Psalms, which was well accepted. From there, I added to my repertoire many poems, readings, literature, and even comedy, which I have performed for high schools, colleges, the military, Relief Societies, civic groups, and literature groups all over the world. Indeed, the Lord gave me, at a trying time, the opportunity to "magnify my talents.".

Bestseller Ebook Love Is a Verb: And Other Thoughts on the Greatest Commandment I could read firsthand accounts of Mary Ellen Edmunds childhood antics for hours! Everything from "fooling" her mother and switching beds with her sister, to creating a fully functioning cricket hospital. Of course...you HAVE to injure the patients before rehabilitating them, RIGHT? Otherwise, there's no need for the hospital! I like my storytelling saints to have had a devious side (if only in their childhood). It helps me relate and hope for a cure for myself. I was impressed with the unusual and spontaneous acts of service Edmunds offered as examples. Recently, I've been feeling like I've been too wrapped-up in my own sphere and -out of the blue- this book was recommended by a friend. Very timely, considering I never shared those thoughts with her. (Way to be in tune, Donna!)Edmunds talks about the "disuse phenomenon". "That which we don't use diminishes in size and usefulness." This could be applied (as in nursing) to muscles, or talents, or (more to the point) our ability to serve and love others. Great reminder! I also appreciated the breakdown and detailed definition of charity. I've heard it a hundred times...but that one resonated well. A great book! It can be read all at once or over snipits of time.
