How Do I Know If I Know?

Book Details
Author: John Bytheway
Release Date: September 2014
Publisher: Deseret Book
Genre: YA Inspiration

John Bytheway is ABSOLUTELY a FANTASTIC TEACHER!
Masterful in his presentations!
He keeps you entertained while helping you understand gospel truths!

I LOVE his opening story:

A twenty-three-year-old man was called to be the Stake President. 
At the Conference one of the General Authorities attending suggested that they undo this calling for the man did not bear a strong testimony that he knew the gospel was true.

When asked about it this, the young Stake President admitted that he truly did not know that it was true.

Then the President of the Church who was also in attendance simply said with a laugh, "He knows it. The only thing that he does not know is that he does know it."

Who was this young Stake President? 
Heber J. Grant.

Do you sometimes wonder if you know?

John Bytheway asks these important questions:

*Can it be possible to know that he Church is true, but not know that you know?

*Is a testimony that hard to detect?

Then with John Bytheway humor and testimony building stories he goes on to explain the we must: 

LISTEN TO OUR FEELINGS
KNOW FROM OUR EXPERIENCES
WATCH FOR EVIDENCES
FORM LOGICAL CONCLUSIONS

To put it in an acronym we must "F.E.E.L the truthfulness of the gospel."

This book will help you realizes that though you might not know it all, you know enough.

At the end of each chapter there is a "MORE LIGHT ON THE SUBJECT" section that links you to videos and talks to help you gain even greater knowledge.

This book is:
POWERFUL!
HELPFUL!
and TRULY A MUST READ!

GREAT for ANYONE struggling to know if they have a testimony.
PERFECT FOR EVERYONE!
