Brad Wilcox maintains that young people who struggle with the gospel and claim that they don't have a testimony or have "lost" it, really do have a testimony even though their "testimony tank" may not be completely full. He explains in this fireside to LDS youth that members of the Church have testimonies at different levels perhaps 1/4 full which is a testimony of experience or 1/2 full which is a testimony through study, and so on. But adding to these 'testimony tanks' often is part of living the gospel constantly finding ways to strengthen our testimonies, or "fill" them. In his typically enthusiastic way, Brad discusses what it means to have a testimony tank gauge indicating these various levels and how to keep your tank at full.

Teen struggling to know if they have a testimony, then this is the tape for you!
by Customer - reviewed on July 08, 2004
If your teenager (or even pre-teen or yourself) is wondering if they really have a testimony of the church have them listen to this tape. Brad Wilcox has a wonderful way of explaining what a testimony is (and you don't have to have a vision or extra-ordinary experience to have one). He explains in basic terms, helps you understand what a testimony is, and lets the youth (and adults too) understand that by doing certain things they do have a testimony. They just do not realize it. We love to listen to talk tapes and CDs in the car--you have a captive audience and they do gain things from them. Highly recommended.
Great for all ages

Brother Wilcox has some great insights on our testimonies. I learned new things from this CD and found it very helpful when I was later teaching a youth class.
