Format: Paperback
I first read this book while serving a full time mission for the LDS church in 1985. The information I gained from it helped channel my faith in a way that I did not think was possible. It opened up a whole new world to me on how our personal level of faith directly dictates the amount and quality of blessings we receive. This book forever changed my life and every blessing that I have received from God since 1985, both spiritual and temporal, I believe is partly credited to the skills this book helped me learn.

I have reread this book many times over the years and every time I do, my faith is again regenerated and my blessing increase. Outside the scriptures this is the single BEST book I have ever read to increase my personal faith. A MUST READ for anyone wanting to learn the skills that will enable them to literally call upon the powers of Heaven to see miracles right in front of their eyes. The Lord stated that if we will not doubt in our hearts, we can command even a mountain to be removed and cast into the sea (Mark 11:23-24) I have a personal testimony to the truthfulness of this statement made by the Lord. The only limit to our blessings is the limit we choose to place on ourselves. This book taught me how to remove those limits and my life has never been the same.

Format: Paperback
Faith was a hard concept for me to understand until I read and applied this book. I had read the New Testament and fell in love with the doctrines taught by Jesus Christ. I never understood His teachings about faith, however, until I put them to the test. This book helped me understand what a trial of faith really was.

The trials are difficult, you have to be absolutely genuine and "pure of heart" otherwise they are easy to fail.

For example, I prayed and fasted for the gift of Charity (the pure love of Christ that he has for all of us) and my challenge was to stop thinking negatively about people. Every negative thought about a person I replaced with a positive thought. Instead of calling people names in my head (a habit I've had all my life) I replaced those words with positive ones. It was hard. The final challenge came when my brother - who's been a jerk to me all my life - really went out of his way to be horrible to me. I started thinking about all the things he's done to me and how much i hated him, but then I reminded myself - "it's a trial! Think good thoughts about him!" I couldn't. I tried and tried, and finally I started with simple things, like: "deep down inside, he's nice. Where nobody can see it, he's a good man." I almost didn't want to complete that trial it was so difficult for me to break those old thinking habits.

Finally after forcing myself to try and love my brother, I heard a voice whisper, "well done!" and I was filled with this perfect love from head to toe. I felt *genuine* love for my brother, and for everybody else too! It was so powerful that I wanted to run home and throw my arms around my brother and forgive him for all he did to me.

this book helped me use the Law of Attraction, with consideration for God, and His answers to our requests. It also showed me that I must do more than sit and 'wish' things into my life. Excellent book.

I worked at the MTC for 3 years, ending August 2011. Many of the principles of the book still apply. Others are a little outdated given the changes that have occurred in missionary work in recent (and maybe not-so-recent years). The fundamental doctrine of faith is obviously still relevant. But don't buy this for a missionary. They can't read it anyways. (Missionary Library only)

This book is a way honestly look at how you pray and if you'e worthy of the things you pray for. Now's the best time to pray with purpose. A how-to bok that really makes sense.

Grant Von Harrison helps us transition our faith into commitment and action. The book confirms what the scriptures teach us. It applies those solid truths to the goals we have in our lives today. I've read this book a number of times. When I read it the first time a number of years ago it played a large role in changing my life. The author is on my list of favorites. I am so thankful for him!

Such an awesome book. I actually purchased this over 20 years ago for myself. I wanted to give it as a gift last year, so was happy to see that I could easily purchase more copies on Amazon. I just love AMAZON, especially the reasonable prices that I pay for books, CD's, and lots of other products. Also love that you almost always have exactly what I'm looking for. .
