Our Search for Happiness
In this, the most recent addition to the approved missionary personal library, Elder M. Russell Ballard explains the Church and LDS beliefs in a clear and inoffensive way. Elder Ballard discusses the Apostasy, the need for the Restoration, the Book of Mormon, the priesthood, the plan of salvation, the Articles of Faith, the Word of Wisdom, temples, missionary work, and benefits of living the gospel. Through personal experiences he reveals how the gospel has benefited him and concludes by bearing his testimony.
You can feel confident in giving this book to nonmember — or less active — friends and family.
When Thou Art Converted
“Being a Christian, being spiritually born of God, is not a Sunday-only thing,” writes Elder M. Russell Ballard of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles. “Nor is it limited to our service and associations in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.”
In When Thou Art Converted, Elder Ballard shows us that we manifest our belief in Christ and our acceptance of Him as our Savior by the way we live our lives. The most important way we “stand as witnesses of God at all times, and in all things, and in all places” is in the daily choices we make.
This important volume, a follow-up to the author's well-loved work Our Search for Happiness, gives 11 valuable keys to help us stand as witnesses of God:
Building and strengthening our testimony
Recognizing our eternal identity as a child of God
Learning to recognize and respond to the Spirit
Learning the lessons of the past
Standing for truth and righteousness
Honoring the priesthood
Following the prophet
Focusing on the family
These keys of discipleship will bless us and others in the search for happiness and peace — a search that becomes ever more rewarding and fulfilling as we endure to the end with those we love, serving the Savior, who loved us first.
