    I have to say, Sheri Dew is not my favorite LDS author because I think she has the same problem I do she talks sometimes when she should be listening However, I respect her testimony and her amazing ability to embrace life and make lemonade out of lemons I liked this book, I find myself having to put it down and take a mental break to absorb all the information that is being presented in often rapid fire style especially her thoughts on how we create many of our own mountains which I com I have to say, Sheri Dew is not my favorite LDS author because I think she has the same problem I do she talks sometimes when she should be listening However, I respect her testimony and her amazing ability to embrace life and make lemonade out of lemons I liked this book, I find myself having to put it down and take a mental break to absorb all the information that is being presented in often rapid fire style especially her thoughts on how we create many of our own mountains which I completely agree with Read it with a notepad or your journal handy the nuggets come fast and you won t want to miss them

    This was the selection for the Cache LAPoudre bookclub this month I admit, I was skeptical about reading it I thought the title is kind of lame and I don t really like self help doctrinal books, so I borrowed it from a friend and figured I would scan the book so that I could discuss it and support Norma, who chose the book Well, I read all night I loved it This book actually changed the way I view myself and my realtionship with God In our meeting Tuesday night, we discussed how charity This was the selection for the Cache LAPoudre bookclub this month I admit, I was skeptical about reading it I thought the title is kind of lame and I don t really like self help doctrinal books, so I borrowed it from a friend and figured I would scan the book so that I could discuss it and support Norma, who chose the book Well, I read all night I loved it This book actually changed the way I view myself and my realtionship with God In our meeting Tuesday night, we discussed how charity isthan just an emotion, or a bit of service here and there It is a way of life, an aspect of one s personality, and is pure, Christlike love My favorite part of the whole book is in the last chapter, when Sheri talks about how our Father in Heaven wants us to ask him for our needs So many people think that there are things which are too trivial for prayer, or that since God made me smart, he expects me to figure things out by myself, and not bother him Yet, Sheri points out that there are countless scriptures where God tells us to weary him with our supplications, and variations of that Then she goes on to quote Bruce R McConkie and says that if we are diligent in seeking God and living his ways, then no blessing can be held back from us, including blessings of revelation, visions, healings, even communication with God himself I love it How often do we sell ourselves short, saying that we are not prophets or apostles, or even that God does not speak to man today But in this book Sheri asserts that He does not love us less than those who are Prophets or Apostles, or than those who lived in other times, and, through our faith we can recieve the same spiritual gifts as anyone else She also talked about how God helps us bear our burdens, but not our baggage That, we have to let go It isn t important It only weakens us, and holds us back from living up to our true potential All in all, a good read, with an excellent discussion at Norma s lovely home
