Drawing from beloved scriptural accounts and writing in the lyrical style of Even This, Emily Belle Freeman shares her understanding of how Jesus will meet you where you are, as you are, but He doesn't intend to leave you there. Instead, the Savior offers divine grace to heal wounds and elevate souls. Grace Where You Are is filled with inspired scripture, gentle moments of reflection and meditation, and opportunities for personal application. Spending some time in its pages will help you to recognize that no matter where you are in your life's journey, Christ will come to you when you feel you fall short, extending His divine grace and providing so much more than what you lack.

In our complex world, it's easy for modern Latter-day Saint women to feel they don't fit the mold, especially in a culture that often focuses on traditional values and picture-perfect families. A Place to Belong is filled with distinctive stories written by thirty-three modern women of faith who show from their own lives that there's more than one way to be a believing and contributing woman in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
This collection celebrates the diverse lives that women lead and how they navigate their twin commitments to women's issues and to their faith. For some people, faith and feminism may seem incompatible, yet A Place to Belong illustrated how they can actually complement each other.

This painting is of a woman in prayer, at the moment her prayers are being answered. Often our prayers are answered by angels- seen and unseen- in the form of friends, family, and loved ones who have passed on.
