This great little book is the quintessential Boyd K. Packer. If you want to remember the sound of his voice and his poignant stories and the points of doctrine that were emphasized by him throughout his years of teaching, this book would be a nice addition to your personal library. The chapters are each a couple of pages. Recommend this as a pick up and read a chapter a day kind of a book.
I finished this book last night. This is really about life lessons that he's gained in his earlier years. There is a parable that he has told. It was called, "The Mediator." It was about a young man who sighed a contract with a creditor after purchasing some property. Well, when the time came to pay off the debt, he could not pay the creditor.

I thoroughly enjoyed a few of the stories... I believe this is one of those books where you can read something one time and have it mean the world to you, but read it another time and have it drop out of your memory like a load of bricks. I appreciate his experiences and think that in time, as I read it again for inspiration, I will find joy and comfort from this book. A great book of inspiration to keep around.
