From Baptist Preacher to Mormon Teacher

A review copy was provided

by Wain Myers and Kelly L. Martinez

It was no Sacred Grove, but it was a place from which I knew my Father could hear me. I knelt at my bedside that same night and asked my Father which of the two churches I should attend.

“Neither,” He replied.

Not exactly the answer I was expecting, so I waited to hear more.


Wain Myers thought he knew what he believed, but after a revelation from God, something had to change.

This former Baptist preacher tells his fascinating story of following the Spirit's voice and ultimately becoming a convert in the LDS church. 

This remarkable true story will inspire you to follow your own promptings and share truth wherever you find it.

My Review

Written from a candid view, touches of humor, and a humble story. This is one you cannot put down.

I loved that Wain's story is real--losses, wrong choices, even feelings of losing desire.

But in it all Wain stays true, overcomes, and ultimately triumphs!

Hope-filled-- this book will be one you want to share with everyone.

What an amazing story!
What an amazing person!
