LaQuisha Barnes gives us a short yet meaningful book on the power of the Savior’s role in our future in Living Vessel. We should surrender to his teachings and yet take control of our lives; it may sound controversial, but after reading this book, all will make sense. “You were not created to work hard all your life only to retire and expire, nor to pursue the approval or understanding of people.” LaQuisha’s words resonate with everyone who is going through hard times in their lives. Growing up is hard, going out into the world without knowing what you want or deserve is very difficult, and sometimes taking a step back and letting help come your way may save you. Reflection upon oneself is extremely important, another lesson learned from LaQuisha Barnes’ book.
Living Vessel by LaQuisha Barnes gave me hope, strength, and patience. Not knowing what the future holds is a recurrent worry in our society; should I do this or apply for this or/and that? When thinking about this, I become anxious about not being good enough or not trying hard enough. There is something about trusting the process and the help from our Savior that settles me and helps me believe that there is a light at the end of the tunnel. I have learned many things by reading this book; there will always be help and guidance, we only need to trust and accept things as they are. Taking a few steps back is not going backward, but changing the point of view. Having someone give you the tools and the knowledge to do what you thought you knew is something to be beyond grateful for. There is a kind of magic in letting Him in.
