The Power of Stillness: Mindful Living for Latter-day Saints (Deseret Book, 2019)

Latter-day Saints are great at getting things done. But sometimes an excessive focus on "doing more" can take us to a place where we're mostly going through the motions—and missing the deep, rich spiritual power that can come from being still. Using Latter-day Saint vernacular and examples, The Power of Stillness explores ways in which mindfulness can help deepen our conversion to the gospel. Infusing our homes with more stillness, silence, and space can reinvigorate the joy inherent in our faith and help us feel calmer, more present and engaged in our lives, and more spiritually connected to our Savior.

"The Power of Stillness demonstrates that mindfulness is implicit in the restored gospel and in life skills which are consistent with gospel living. Through numerous practical examples, it reveals how being still, present, and mindful opens us up more fully to the influence of the Spirit in the various aspects of our lives. It reminds us of the message of so many ancient and modern prophets that when we are still we find God. I expect it to be a landmark in introducing mindfulness to more Latter-day Saints."
