This is a collection of testimonies of God and The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints by various well-known members such as Gladys Knight, Mitt Romney, Danny Ainge, Steve Young, etc. and includes short biographies of the writers.

I love reading about different "conversion stories" into the LDS church. This articulated and reminded me of many of the reasons I love being a member of the church.

Recognized the title, and sure enough it was in among my books... read so many years ago. Now need to put it out to read again.
Some wonderful testimonies and experiences of more well knon members of the church.
An eclectic look at who believes what, along with their reasons for doing so.
Loved hearing why other prominent LDS believe the way they do.
