Authors A. Dean Byrd and Mark D. Chamberlain address the topic of self-control, exploring it in the framework of doctrine and counsel from Church leaders and their own professional experiences. The authors have discovered that people who are successful in maintaining self-control rely less on willpower than on what might be called heart-power. Willpower Is Not Enough provides encouragement and guidance to all who wish to harness the motivating power of the heart, express themselves from the heart, and successfully deal with setbacks and overcome obstacles to change.

This is a good reminder that there is help beyond ourselves to overcome any kind of addiction or negative behavior. The Lord is there to "deliver us from bondage" and often the bonds are too strong for us to break on our own!
This book is changing my life.

I bought this book to help me overcome my eating issues. Instead I found something that has changed my entire outlook on life. Using gospel principles and logic to find a way to want to change has been incredible. In finding what my heart really wants, which isn't another ice cream sunday, I have found new joy in taking care of my children and serving my family. I recommend this book strongly to anyone dealing with behavior they want to change.
