Product Description

Enthusiasm is a lively word suggesting energy, optimism, faith, and joy. It's also a word that describes Elder L. Tom Perry of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles. In a warm, personal account that will teach and entertain you, Elder Perry tells of his childhood search for a talent and his discovery of what he calls his 'only real talent'--enthusiasm.

Elder Perry believes living with enthusiasm is a talent we can all cultivate, and he shows us how in his first book. Through story-filled chapters, Elder Perry talks about such things as finding friends at any age, anywhere; enduring adversity and persecution; teaching children the joy of honest labor; and heeding the prophet's voice instead of worldly voices.

Deepen and strengthen your testimony of the gospel while you discover some of Elder Perry's other talents: his skill as a storyteller, his clear understanding of the gospel, and his ability to rely on the guidance of the Spirit. And some of Elder Perry's contagious enthusiasm is bound to rub off on you.
