Product Description

The Best Three Hours of the Week from Excel Films on Vimeo.

In this inspiring fireside presentation, author and speaker John Bytheway explains how we can gain the most from our three-hour block of Sunday meetings. In his distinctive and personable way, he reminds his listeners that we don't go to church to be entertained and that if we are bored and uninterested in our sacrament and other meetings, it is not the fault of the speakers and teachers. In a very helpful way, John teaches the specific things we can do to make church attendance exciting and enjoyable. (Hint: it has to do with changing our attitude.)

This is a really good talk. John Bytheway really has a gift for reaching teenagers and making what can seem dull exciting for them. I really recommend this for teens, especially the early teens to get them hooked sooner than later.

Just great! This DVD opens your eyes to the true meaning of the Sacrament, the covenants we make at church, the talks and the meeting itself. It is a great tool for helping the young and old better appreciate their role as being active participants in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Although geared toward older children and young adults, this DVD is valuable to all. John Bytheway makes several good points and reminds us of the importance of our meetings on Sundays.

Inspires gratitude for the gospel

Whether you're young or old, John Byetheway's words will help you better appreciate the opportunity each of us to make better use of our communal worship time. With his usual humor and some very appropriately used scriptural references, Brother Bytheway helps emphasize the need we have to bring the proverbial 'spiritual bucket' spoken of by Elder McConkie to get the most of our time in Church.

This opened the door to a greatly deepened Holy Sabath Day experience

If faith is like a seed, and Sundays are our watering days then Brother Bytheway has taught me and my son how to access the well rather than waite for the rain and catch only the drips. And all through small things that make a great diffenece. , On a side note I bought this one for me and my 9 year old son took hold to Brother Bytheways humor and style, and the great chaptered type format and has now watched it 3 times on his own innitative, is taking it in, and still enjoys it!! Thank you Brother Bytheway!!
