Book Review: Could It Really Be This Easy?

Could It Really Be This Easy blog tourAbout the book:
It’s easier than you think. Whether you’re trying to figure out which school to attend, who to date, or how to repent after making a mistake, following God’s plan for you isn’t that complicated. Fun to read and easy to understand, this book is perfect for teens, young adults, and anyone looking for direction from our loving Father in Heaven.

About the author:
Ted Peck has taught seminary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints for over 10 years and has served as bishop of his home ward and a college campus singles ward, working with many young people. He’s watched his three children and thirteen grandchildren grow and face their own life choices. Being married to his childhood sweetheart for forty-three years has taught him things he never imagined he would learn, and today the two of them are serving as a Senior Missionary Couple for the Church.

From Reidhead Randomness:

I am a self proclaimed math geek!  I love, Love, LOVE math jokes and  

√-1 2^3 E π

Therefore, when I opened the book, and saw MATH, my interest was piqued!  The subtitle of the book is "The Eternal Equations of Success for Teens".....Aha!  That is why the math is there!  The tops of each chapter page is sprinkled with fun diagrams or little math equations.  

As you dig into the meat of the book, its like a super fun Sunday School teacher sharing great gospel lessons.  Some of it is stuff you *should* know, some is stuff you might know but have forgotten, and some stuff might surprise you.  There are lots of interesting insights and examples shared that help you think through things a little differently than you might have in the past.  

It is written in an enjoyable and entertaining way that keeps you reading.  It is a valuable read for teenagers of all ages.....and parents!  It doesn't bog you down when reading.  It keeps it fun and easy reading.

One of my favorite things about the book is that at the end of each chapter is a section "Review of Important Points" which summarizes the chapter and gives you things to think about, and the things you should take away from that chapter.  

What a wonderful resource for teens, parents, teachers, and leaders!

Satan wants us to believe that life is too hard, when really it's amazingly simple!

I received a copy of this book in order to write my review, however all opinions expressed are my own.
