Sorry, I certainly left out a few details.
LITW is written from the point of view of a spiritual seeker, someone who wants much more than the Sunday School version. The author draws on personal experience, the scriptures, and many other sources. She shares things that can make a major difference in your life, even if their origins are non-LDS.
Some of my favorite subjects that she covers:
The Paradise within
The Presence Within
What is, is right
Here is a quote that I like:
"Wisdom says that we can control only our intent. We cannot control the past or the future, and we cannot control the consequences of what we do. The results of our best efforts always lie in the Lord’s hands. How much stress might recede if we gave up feeling that we had to control anything beyond our own preparations and intentions. Our happiness would be greater as we humbly accepted what finally plays out. The Savior said a comforting thing to Martha: “Thou art careful and troubled about many things; but one thing is needful” (Luke 10:41–42). Life is ever only about one thing, this present moment, the Presence within, and the present thing to do."
I would also recommend her article on Hebrews:http://maxwellinstitute.byu.edu/publica ... ts/?id=111
She includes her email address in the book, and she does respond.
