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.
This pattern was never better exemplified than when a young, fourteen-year-old boy accepted the familiar invitation from James — “If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God.” — and decided to ask God which church he should join. That single question not only changed his life forever but also changed the world forever by ushering in the Restoration of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Truly, questions can be powerful agents of change.
In this unique and thought-provoking book, Change Your Questions, Change Your Life, Wendy Watson Nelson explored the power of asking — and answering — certain questions. Questions such as:
- What is on my premortal list of “Things to Do While on Earth?”
- What is the one question I most need to have answered from the scriptures today?
- How can I be more of my true self at the end of this experience?
- Whose agenda is this supporting?
The book's full-color graphics and illustrations help us visualize and personalize these important concepts, and we are invited to pause and reflect on the different kinds of questions we can ask and the remarkable ways new questions can help us solve old problems.
Filled with inspirational insights and grounded in doctrine and the scriptures, Change Your Questions, Change Your Life presents what may seem to be a revolutionary way of looking at your life, but in reality it simply, and with great clarity, articulates one of the most profound ways the Lord has always taught His children and invited them to progress. For truly He has said “Ask, and it shall be given you” (Matt. 7:7).

30 Day Experiment
The “Take a Daily Question to the Scriptures for 30 Days” Experiment
Begin each of the thirty days of this experiment by asking yourself:
What is the one question I most need to have answered today—the question that is burning in my heart and mind, burdening me—the question that is troubling my life?
- Take your scriptures and kneel down and thank your Heavenly Father, in the name of Jesus Christ, for the scriptures.
- Ask for the Spirit to be with you as you seek an answer to your one question for that day. Picture the Holy Ghost being right there with you as you read.
- Ask your Heavenly Father the one question you most need to have answered that day.
- Open your scriptures and read until you find the answer.
It is my experience, and the witness of so many others, that you won’t have to read very far before you will find what you are looking for.

I was delighted with the practicality of this book. It was not just mumbo-jumbo feel good stuff. I read my scriptures daily and have done so for years, but reading them looking for a specific answer to a specific question has been an eye-opening experience. I bought four copies--one for me and one for each of my daughters.

I don't have a lot of time to read so when I do I want a great book - this is one! It was thought provoking and gave so many great insights as to the direction we should take our thinking. I love it! I'm always looking for great little thoughts to put in presentations I give. This book gave me some great stuff to work with.

I was absolutely floored by this book. I was expecting it to be good, but not this good. It gave me a different perspective on my life and challenges. I now feel more empowered to take responsibility for my struggles and find new solutions for them. It's also done very creatively, with a lot of pictures and illustrations that make the messages more powerful than they already are. It's gorgeous - put together so beautifully. This book is well worth the price. It's without a doubt Sister Nelson's best work.

Nice book, good stuff, but I ended up selling it. It had too many repetitions.
Wondering what you were sent here to do?

This is a very thought provoking book that gives several suggestions on how to more fully recognize the blessings and love our Heavenly Father has for us individually, as well as an extremely effective way of receiving personal revelation in our daily lives. I bought several copies as gifts for some very special women who would be strengthened by the book's message.
