A book a day...keeps insanity away! I am an avid book reader. When I am not reading, I love to play the piano, sing, or shop until I drop! Reading has been a huge part of my life since I was young and my Mom introduced me to the public library! Since then I have not stopped reading! I hope you enjoy my reviews!
An ideal talk that supports the new 2015 Mutual theme!
In this motivating talk related to the 2015 youth theme, John Bytheway explains what it means to truly embark — to get fully on board in the service of God with all your heart, might, mind, and strength. Using scriptures, powerful stories, and his characteristic humor, John explains that with the Savior's help, we can remain on board and eventually stand blameless before God at the last day.
I sat down to listen to this talk before Church one Sunday. Bytheway grabbed my attention from the beginning of his talk and held it raptly until the very end. At times I found myself laughing and at others I felt the Spirit so strongly! Most importantly, I felt motivated to get out and serve the Lord, to be who He wants me to be. Honestly I loved this talk so much that I suggested that the youth in our ward listen to it as a fireside! Whether you are an adult or a teen, age doesn't matter for this amazing motivational talk by Bytheway. His message is powerful and motivating for all who will take the time to listen!
