About Reaching for the Savior
Drawing upon her unique life experiences, Sister Reyna Aburto invites readers to join with her in strengthening Christ’s Church. Through her relatable style and humble approach, Sister Aburto shares her insights about growing up in Nicaragua, losing her brother in a devastating earthquake, having a spouse struggle with addiction, dealing with divorce and single parenting, joining the Church, and developing a deep conviction of the Savior’s love and the transcendent power of His atoning sacrifice. Each chapter addresses a specific way we can reach for the Savior, from studying the Book of Mormon to temple worship to strengthening our wards to ministering and more. Through trials and difficulties, personal darkness, and mental and emotional struggles, we can find small and simple ways of drawing closer to God in Reaching for the Savior.
I’ve been wanting to read this book for a while. When the female leaders of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints write a book, you know it’s going to be great. This one is just that, great!
I loved the way Sister Aburto writes this. She writes in such a conversational way. That makes it easy to read the book. It’s just like you’ve sat down with this amazing woman and had a conversation with her.
I loved her insights. And that she was willing to talk about hard subjects. Her chapter on mental hardships is one everyone should read.
This is one of those books that you just need to read! Thank you to Sister Reyna Aburto for writing it!
I was sent a copy of Reaching for the Savior as a gift from the publisher. All opinions are my own.
