In this live recording, Sheri Dew talks about the traps the adversary uses. Bottom line: he'll try to confuse you about any of these three gospel principles: 1. Confuse you about your identity (who you really are)and your personal mission 2. Confuse you about what the Savior actually did for you (the Atonement) and what He' prepared to do for you now 3. Confuse you about knowing how to receive personal revelation Like a latter-day strategy manual, this talk by Sheri Dew offers three empowering truths that will help you to avoid confusion and understand what your Spirit has always known.

Abish: Daughter of God

Abish: Daughter of God

K.C. Grant

Paperback $16.95

Every story must have a beginning. If mine were to be told, it would begin two lifetimes ago, before a queen gave me my freedom and I moved from land to land looking for a place where I belonged. It would begin before death ripped out my heart. But it would not be my story alone. It would tell of a proud people brought low and of a low people exalted, because my tale is only a thread that has somehow become entwined in the tapestry that has unfolded around me. And so begins the intensely emotional, richly spiritual odyssey of Abish, whose significant contribution to Book of Mormon history is creatively depicted in this finely crafted story of love, loss, and redemption. This is a story of one woman ... more

Questions can be powerful! They can help us to see, feel, think, and do things differently! Do you want better relationships? Then ask better questions. Do you want a great life? Learn to ask great questions.

Truly, questions can be powerful agents of change.
