Your mission, should you choose to accept it, starts with you and the
scriptures. Learn how ordinary people became extraordinary and how
their stories can build your testimony and prepare you for serving the
Lord. Funny and full of practical ideas you can use, this book is
perfect for teens and young adults as it leads them through the
scriptures and solidifies their testimonies and preparedness.
About the author:
Eric Rigby finished his first book in the second grade. It was called
“The Holey Street” and centered on the attempts of each student in his
class as they tried to cross a street pockmarked with supernatural
sinkholes (none survived). He has made great strides in storytelling
since then. He and his wife are the proud parents of two sons and
currently live in Utah.
From Reidhead Randomness:
What better missionary guide could you ask for, than the scriptures! This book offers so many wonderful insights into teaching and sharing the gospel, and missionary life. Best of all...it is funny!
I love that the author shares the "pattern question"....some form of "what should I do?" This is a great guideline to use in our scripture study. (At the end of the chapters, there is a section of lined pages to write your own thoughts and experiences.)
There is a funny section titled "The church is basically a giant nursery" that is a must read! Another section, called "Get out of jail free?" gives inspiration in tough times.
There are great tips for scripture study, testimony building, recognizing the spirit, fasting, prayer, honesty/ choosing the right, obedience, and having a positive attitude.
I love all the scripture stories and examples that are shared. The stories have had new life breathed into them, and they are shared in a current and relatable style!
This is a great read for any youth that is looking to build a testimony, or prepare for a mission. It is also a great read for teacher, leaders, and parents!
I received a copy of this book in order to write a review, however all opinions expressed are my own.
