In the midst of deep affliction, the Prophet Joseph Smith was told, “All these things shall give thee experience, and shall be for thy good.” The world at that moment was shown anew that God is aware of man's suffering, and that pain is not without purpose. Such concepts are not always easy to accept, but, as Elder Maxwell observes, “the hardness is usually not in their complexity, but in the deep demands these doctrines make on us.”
All These Things Shall Give Thee Experience focuses on some of the “hard doctrines” that members of the Church must grapple with in the latter days. This book will help the Saints prepare for the trials ahead, while assuring them that the power of God's love is constantly available to the faithful.

I love Elder Maxwell and his ability he had to write so poetically. This book is a wonderful read or well worth listening to in the audio book format. The book is read by the author, which is nice, though I must admit I didnt recognize his voice at first since I was a young girl the last time I heard him speak. I found myself taking notes on everything he said. My pen could not move fast enough to write it all down and as with most of his talks and books literally every sentence is quotable! I loved the audio book, though I would recommend the paperback instead to be able to read and fully grasp everything he says and to mark the quotes more easily. This book is great for learning more fully the Lord's plan and His love for us, and how to getting trials and all, but it is so much more than that. He This book is really great for anyone, especially adults but it may be good for young adults as well.
This is literature at its best. He combines the precision of his word choice with: imagery, scriptures, qoutes, and the spirit. all in an effort to help us glimpse the masters plan.
I read this book over and over again and still learn new things about my Heavenly Father, my purpose, and the love of forgiveness. This book is an eternal gift. Give it to anyone you know, or give it to yourself to learn how to better uplift, love, and serve.
This book is fantastic. It provides hope and encouragement to help deal with the trials of life.
This book gives so many deeper insights into the plan of happiness and the nature of God. This is a good read for anyone who is contemplating the question, 'why.' This book can help provide the answers to those deep questions that arise in a 'moment' of dispair.
This book is wonderful! It is so insightful and full of so much love and encouragement. Each time I read it, it thrills me again, and I wish my children had it. So I'm going to get it for each one of them for Christmas.
