I love Elder Wirthlin! We got a lot of books for our wedding that were written by the apostles and I am ashamed to say that they have been sitting on our bookshelf mostly as decoration. So I decided it was time to actually read them. So, of course, I picked Elder Wirthlins first! It took a while to read because its just like reading a whole bunch of talks...not very suspenseful if you know what I mean. His counsel and advice is golden and uplifting. Many times I would find things that would rela ...more

I really loved the messages in this book. It was very helpful. I must admit I took a really, really long time to read it, though. It's divided up into short chapters - each with it's own topic. So, I could read a little here and there. By the time I finished the book, I couldn't remember what the beginning was about!

An insightful book. I first got this book to use in a lesson. I have read this several times and still go back to it. I still go back to this book and re-read this. Every time, I find something that strikes a chord. Elder Wirthlin touches on Basic doctrinal concepts in such an insightful way.

“Unfortunately, some in the Church may believe sincerely that their testimony is a raging bonfire when it really is little more than the faint flickering of a candle. Their faithfulness has more to do with habit than holiness, and their pursuit of personal righteousness almost always takes a back seat to their pursuit of personal interests and pleasure. With such a feeble light of testimony for protection, these travelers on life's highways are easy prey for the wolves of the adversary. . . .

Some people are weak in their faith and testimonies but are not even aware of how precarious their situation is. Many of them likely would be offended at the suggestion. They raise their right hand to sustain Church leaders and then murmur and complain when a decision does not square with their way of thinking. They claim to be obedient to God's commandments but do not feel at all uncomfortable about purchasing food at the store on Sunday and then asking the Lord to bless it. Some say they would give their lives for the Lord, yet they refuse to serve in the nursery.”
