Power to Become w/ Book Giveaway

Book Details
Author: David A. Bednar
Release Date: March 2014
Publisher: Deseret Book
Genre: Gospel Teachings

Elder David A. Bednar is a masterful teacher!

If you only read the first few pages you will be richly taught about the enabling power of the Atonement...

"I suspect that Church members are much more familiar with the nature of the redeeming and cleansing power of the Atonement of Jesus Christ...But we also need to appreciate that the Lord desires, through His Atonement and by the power of the Holy Ghost, to live in us--not only to direct us by also to empower us."

If you go on you will learn about the spiritual gift of personal peace.

"One of the greatest spiritual gifts we can be given as we press forward along the strait and narrow path is personal peace..."

Even during times of trial and testing we can have that peace.

Next you will be taught about Priesthood ordinances and willing obedience.

He also teaches us how to endure valiantly. I love that...we are not just to endure...but to endure valiantly!

And then he brings it all together from the 3 books in this series...

*An individual responsibility to increase in  LEARNING
*Turn from self to the Savior by ACTING in doctrine
*Press forward with a steadfastness in Christ with the power of BECOMING

Wide margins and end-of-chapter pages for note taking as you receive your own thoughts and feelings.

URL links for short videos of Elder Bednar teaching even more in a discussion group are included.

  1. I love Elder Bednar. He says it like it is. I fell in love with him and Sister Bednar during BYU-I orientation when I first went to college. I love their advice in the video - to set our priorities straight and make time for what's most important.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

    1. Elder Bednar and his wife are wonderful!
