    1 thought on “Eve and the Mortal Journey: Finding Wholeness, Happiness, and Strength

    1. Enjoyed this sequel to Eve and the Choice Made in Eden! Though I liked the first book a bit better, I still really enjoyed the messages of this book. In this book, women are encouraged to not be so hard on ourselves, to develop the gifts that God has given us, and finding out what our unique mission is. It is filled with uplifting examples and food for thought. Highly recommend this!

    2. Finally finished! I liked this book. I liked its predecessor better. I felt like there were parts of this one that riveted me and other parts where my attention wandered. That could also have been due to my lackadaisical and sporadic approach to actually doing any reading in it.

    3. I didn't love this quite as much as I loved the first one -- and the best one of all is the article she wrote for Collegium Aesculapium -- but I love the way she takes lessons from the garden of Eden and applies them to our mortal journey. I especially love what she had to say about love, friendship, connectedness and happiness. Her closing paragraphs sum it up so beautifully: "In the end, then, it all comes down to choices -- our choices, our choice to honor divine contracts, our choice to elec [...]

    4. Beverly Campbell has such a great understanding of women. I loved reading this loving witness of the greatness of our Mother Eve. I felt inspired and uplifted as I took to heart the witness she shared and the plan she had to help me gain a better understanding and knowledge of how to find and enjoy true happiness.

    5. A great book about the relationship between men an women. Men and women are different; however, each has strengths which are superior to the other, and, in the compose, neither is better nor worse than the other. When their differences are joined together in mutual respect, counsel, and cooperation, they can create a heaven on earth as well as thru the eternities.

    6. With Eve and the Choice made in Eden I highlighted constantly wanting to be able to reference the ideas that were presented. With this book I was not as moved. Very little highlights.

    7. GReat great book and I am glad I read it. Awesome notes about women finding happiness along the way. I especially loved the discussion on living in the present vs. past/future as I tend to think way ahead into the future and plan plan plan (i can't help it).Loved:"no matter how grand the adventure or how stunning the diversions, the real, bottom-line longings of the soul, the truest desires of the heart, are to return to those places where we can feel His spirit." pg. 4 "desire is active not pas [...]

    8. Read because I enjoyed her first book so much. Much less heavy, tackles a different subject entirely, and honestly though it offers many wonderful insights, they are mostly things I have pondered before but now that I have finished it I cannot recommend it enough (though in some sections it is particularly written for women.) This book covered a lot of ground, and she is such a phenomenal person that just reading her writing is a joy in itself. Two of my favorite sections: she helps you to ident [...]

    9. The main thing I learned from this book is that before we came to earth, we agreed to do certain things while we were here. Through our lives opportunities, church callings, trials, etc. may come up that will help us move towards accomplishing those things we agreed to do. If we pass up opportunities because we don't feel confident in doing it, we may be keeping ourselves from honoring our "divine contract" (as the author calls it in the book.)While this book is written for women, I feel much of [...]

    10. Eve and the Choice Made in Eden=spectacular!! I loved it, couldn't wait for more insights into Mother Eve. Eve and the Mortal Journey=sub-par. Nothing better than your average RS lesson, which is nice, but I don't want to read a whole book like that. Feels like it was written just to prolong the success of the first, fabulous book. I don't have the energy to continue with it.

    11. I hate to be harsh on a church book--especially since I loved the first Eve book so much, but I'm not even finishing this one. I just felt that the author was name-dropping and calling too much attention to herself and her accomplishments in this book. I'm putting it aside and maybe at a later date I can read it with a kinder view.

    12. It only took me almost 9 months to finish this relatively short book. Beverly Campbell's first book is much more compelling and fascinating than this book, her second. But perhaps I may have appreciated this 2nd book more if I had completed it within a shorter time frame.

    13. I didn't like this book as much as her previous book on Eve. I felt this book was much more her own opinion, and also more touchy-feely. I also questioned some of her assertions. It was still fun to read and she is a good writer, but I wasn't as impressed.

    14. I liked Sister Campbell's first book, "Eve and the Choice Made in Eden" much better, because I came to understand Eve's calling and the reason for her choice in the Garden. The second book is more like a self help and there wasn't much I hadn't heard before.

    15. I didn't "hate" the book but I felt like there was some rehashing of topics discussed in the first book the further I read. The first half of the book was very thought-provoking but I eventually became bored. I preferred the first book and would read the first book again.

    16. I loved this book and highly recommend it. It was different than I thought it would be, but I am grateful for that. This book is about mortality, our journey back to our Heavenly Father, and our individual missions to help further the work of God. I love inspiring books like this!

    17. This is a follow-up book to Eve and the Choice Made in Heaven. I enjoyed reading this book, but liked the first one better.

    18. I liked this book but totally thought the first book was more inspirational at least for me. I still like reading this one and loved the insight.

    19. I liked it and find her personal experiences fascinating, but enjoyed her first book more for its insights.

    20. Good points and stories, but I liked her first book Eve and the Choice Made in Eden much more. This one didn't give me those A-HA moments like her other book.

    21. The biggest reason I gave this book a 5 star rating is because there were things in it that I needed right now. It was really good for me. :)

    22. This was a good book for women. It discusses issues that are specifically directed and important to women in this day and age.

    23. This is a great book for anyone who is or has struggled with depression or anxiety, or even for anyone in need of an uplifting book. I highly recommend it!
