Recommends it for: everyone
Recommended to Larry by: Julene
I love listening to Sheri Dew because she inspires me to become a better person.

Also it is so refreshing to listen to a woman speak who isn't baby-talking the whole time. It is so annoying to listen to most women in general conference speak to us like they are speaking to a toddler. I shouldn't let it distract me, but it does.

This book was ok, but I don't feel like it really spoke to me. Maybe I just wasn't in the right frame of mind. I didn't find it enlightening or even particularly motivating. And one portion actually got me all riled up. Anyhow I am sure this would be a great book for some people, but it just wasn't really for me.

It is my Mother-in-law's book. I am curious to hear what she has to say about it. It quotes from the Book of Mormon passages that I am now studying in. I keep thinking this is good for my g'children right now.

I also read it, did not listen to the CD's. I liked the lengthy discussion about women's relationship to the priesthood; I thought it was one of the more thorough discussions I have ever heard.

The latest book by Sheri Dew was very inspirational and encouraging. She told several of the stories that I heard when she spoke in November of this year, but it was still enjoyable.

Put simply...I am a Sheri Dew fan. Anything she writes, I love. She has a direct, enthusiastic, and powerful ability to motivate and inspire. Just love the woman!

Another great talk by Sheri Dew. I love listening to her talks. It's amazing how quickly I can get my housework done while listening to her speak.

Sheri Dew is funny. She has stories to back up what she is teaching. I listened to this book on CD and it helped me to want to aspire to do better.

Sheri Dew has an amazing way of connecting with people. This is a 50 minute talk she gave. I really enjoyed listening to it.

“It is not possible to sin enough to be happy. It isn't possible to buy enough to be happy, or to entertain or indulge or pamper ourselves enough to be happy. It is not possible to hide enough or run far enough away from trials and troubles to be happy. Happiness and joy come only when we are living up to who we are...

I have never met anyone who was happier because he was immoral, or because he was addicted to something, or because he was dishonest and compromised his integrity. ”
