Product Description

The Deseret Bookshelf version is enhanced with video.

To completely engage the reader and enhance the learning process, the book features a blend of print, media and online resources. For example, at the end of each chapter, readers are invited to ask questions, ponder and apply the principles being taught. The margins of the book are extra-wide and there are blank pages for jotting down notes.

“The overarching purpose of Heavenly Father's great plan of happiness is to provide His spirit children with opportunities to learn,” writes Elder David A. Bednar of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles. But how can we best learn the things we need to know and do?

Elder Bednar emphasizes concepts, patterns, and processes that invite each of us to act and learn fundamental truths for ourselves. Declaring that answers to our questions always are found in the doctrines and principles of the restored gospel, he provides a framework in this book for learning those doctrines and understanding with our hearts.

This new interactive book will help you acquire one of the most important skills you'll ever

possess: the power to learn. With its unique blend of print, media, and online resources, it

provides patterns for spiritual learning that will lead you to understand and act on gospel truths.

Learn how to get the answers you need for yourself!

  • Features extra-wide margins for recording thoughts and invites readers to ask, ponder, and then apply what they are learning.

Love Elder Bednar's perspective. There is something to using more of your senses to learn--Love the embedded videos! As another reviewer mentioned, I hope to see more books done this way.

For Those Who Ernestly Strive to Follow the Will of the Lord

I was prompted to write this review because through Elder Bednar's teachings, especially in the video segments, I recognized the pattern the Lord has used to teach and work with me all my life! I shared this with my wife, Becci, who with joy, also recognized this pattern in her life. This has been very affirming and has helped us to see Heavenly Father's hand in our lives more clearly and has increased our love and appreciation for Him immeasurably. My wife and I can testify that his teachings to give greater emphasis to "doctrines and principles" instead of just "applications" is true. Our parenting philosophy stemmed from what Joseph Smith explained, that he taught "correct principles and the people governed themselves." Our family is happier because of it. You can know for yourself the Gospel truths and stand independent as a witness for the Savior.
