Mighty Change: The Process of Going from Good to Better
During our mortal probation, we experience adversity, temptations, and challenges as we prepare for eternity. By discussing doctrinal truths from the Book of Mormon, references from General Authorities of the LDS Church, and personal insights gained from his own life experiences, author Christopher R. Greenwood shows us many ways we can purify our spirits and fulfill our potential. He motivates us to search more deeply into our own hearts and desire the purifying effects of the Holy Spirit that will result in a mighty change. For those Latter-day Saints who seek transforming power in their lives, and with insights from the prophets, both ancient and modern, Brother Greenwood gently and reverently illuminates the path they should pursue.
What can occur in our lives and what steps can we take to make ourselves want and strongly desire to experience a mighty change of heart and thereby lose our disposition to do evil?
Some time ago, I saw the following statement written on a conference-room board. Interestingly, I have no idea who put it there or why, but I found the implications eternal – a genuine life lesson. This is what was written:
Which is stronger?
My urge to grow
My resistance to change
I love to ponder this question and ask myself honestly where I fit in according to this statement. When I evaluate myself or when I ponder, I ask myself if I can honestly say that, at that moment, my urge to grow is most dominant. Where do I fit in as a member of His Church and kingdom? Where should I fit in?
It is my prayer that by reading this book, it may contribute towards the beginning of a desire to perfect ourselves. Along with reading and applying the principles found in the scriptures, may they be the root cause of our desire to go from good to better and experience a mighty change of heart.

This book is written in a way that I was able to understand and apply the principals in my life. A lot of research has been put into each chapter and I think of this book more like a manual as to how I should live my life. I strongly recommend others to read it.

I have read most of the book already and think that it is brilliant! You have a clear writing style that is accessible and not too wordy, yet it cuts to the heart of the matter. It is both practical and thought-provoking / challenging. I like the way that it encourages the reader to step out of his/her comfort zones. Obviously it is very well researched as the citations from various General Authorities are most apt in each case. The insights are deeply penetrating and well illustrated with personal experiences that draw in the reader. There is good balance between the philosophical, the personal and the practical and also an economy of words, which I would say is the true essence of style.
While I was reading the book I felt a beautiful spirit of peace wash over me. I feel that it will inspire me and others to live the Gospel better - something that I really need in my life at this time. My other impression was of its sincerity, humility and integrity. - That it is written from a genuine desire to help others live the Gospel more fully and experience that "mighty change". I didn't detect any hint of "fame" or "celebrity" as being contributing motivators. You obviously have an extraordinary gift/facility for writing and want to share your valuable spiritual insights and wisdom with the world. That comes through unmistakably. The other impression that I felt - is that this God-given gift that is now being more fully realized surely must be a significant part of your mission here on earth.
At any rate, I have really enjoyed what I have read. I am extremely impressed, admire and commend what you are doing and look forward to your future accomplishments.
