SO WISH I COULD JUST COPY THE WHOLE BOOK FOR YOU!
Being a Christian is more than just going to church on Sundays....it is a way of life.
"7-days a week, 52 weeks a year, and throughout all the years of your life."
Using personal stories Brad Wilcox shows us the ways we can increase our becoming more Christian... our becoming more like Christ.
Simple, yet sometimes hard, practices that will shape us into who we were meant to be.
* Live life with a sense of urgency and a sense of integrity.
* Never check your religion at the door.
* Become trusting and happy like a child.
* Face your people fears.
* and MORE
I REALLY LOVED this idea:
"Just as the earth went through 7 days of creation, we must also go through 7 days of re-creation...a process of being formed, divided, enlightened, beautified, and filled with life."
It is time to take a stand!
Let this book help you become a 7-day Christian!

Brad Wilcox is a wonderful author because all his books are insightful, but they are not the same. In every book he presents new material and ideas I have not considered before. I love what he shares about how early Christians changed the world. I had never thought of it like that before. I loved how he shared his own experiences (writing a first place story in high school and running a half marathon) in a way that allowed me to relate and feel motivated. He uses humor throughout. I loved the stories about and from little kids in the chapter on obtaining childlike attributes. My favorite chapters were the first one on how we can know there is a God and the last one in which he focuses on what is truly at the core of Christianity. These are issues that are debated over and over and most authors get way too complicated for me. When Brad Wilcox teaches about them they seem so simple and clear. I get it. The best thing I can say about this book is that I had an "ah-ha" moment at least once in every chapter. It was truly inspiring!

I absolutely loved this book. It gave me hope that it's really possible to use the Savior's teachings to guide my decisions. I found myself nodding in agreement again and again. But its not just a dry checklist of suggestions. I was so inspired that I couldn't put it down until I was finished. I recommend everyone read this, and then go back and read it again.
