What has the power to soften hearts, open minds, and restore hope? What can heal the wounds of abuse and fill the empty spaces left by neglect? The answer is charity, which the prophet Mormon describes as ''the pure love of Christ.'' Charity is the love God feels for His children and the kind of love He asks us to feel for ourselves and each other. In this groundbreaking book, Douglas Dobberfuhl explores the latest findings about the brain and body in regards to charity. Drawing on over twenty years as a professional therapist, he helps readers understand charity, experience the love of Heavenly Father, and cultivate charity for others. Stories of real people are provided as motivating examples of lives transformed by charity. This God-given love can fulfill us personally, improve our marriages, and strengthen our families. If we allow ourselves to receive and share charity, its power can change us forever.
