Page 66- We must have personal, spiritual experiences to anchor us. These come through seeking them in the same intense, single-minded way that a hungry person seeks food.
Ammon Hallsted
It was good! Not spectacular. It definitely described some doctrine that I'd been looking for, most of the rest was full of nice explanations and sweet stories.
David Robbins
Excellent book!
Ruth Ann
This book speaks to me. I read it two years ago and started again to prepare for a lesson in RS. This book was written as an continuation of his book, "Our search for happiness," which was originally written for people who were investigating the gospel. This book gives me hope and help. You know how some books seem to be written for you...this one I relate to.

Really liked some of Elder Ballards thoughts about "feasting" on the words of Christ, and how he said it's not just enough to read 1 verse a day. Needed that kick in the pants to get me going on really studying my scriptures again.
Lexee Russell
I always wondered why Peter was so determined to follow the Savior, but then denied him three times. This book gives great insights into that struggle, which a lot of us face.
Charity
This is an excellent book! It's for members of the church instead of his prior book Our search for happiness for people investigating the church.
Nathan
What I enjoyed the most about this book were the stories Elder Ballard tells about teaching his children and grand-children.
Gretchen
what to do when you are converted--how does it change your life and the lives of those around you? I liked this book
Sheree
This was a great book - wonderful stories! Charity, thanks for letting me borrow it! I really enjoyed it.
Zach Alleman
I got this book on my my mission. I loved it then, and I loved it during this second reading.
Jeff
One of my favorite "guide books" on how to live a good life and be a good Latter-day Saint.
Alissa
It was nice to be reminded of the most important things in life and what my priorities should be.
Ted Gambles
A great book to remind each of us our commitment to live the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
