Product Description

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.

Excerpt:
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:

The Million Dollar Question
Which is stronger?
My urge to grow
-or-
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.

Mormon Times Review: 'A Mighty Change' gives advice on becoming better by following the teachings of Christ

When King Benjamin, an ancient American prophet, was about to pass his leadership position on to Mosiah, his son, he asked for one last meeting with his faithful subjects and their families. His purpose was to impress on them the necessity of maintaining a constant vigil in the pursuit of righteousness.
At the conclusion of his speech, it is recorded, “he sent among them, desiring to know of his people if they believed the words which he had spoken unto them” (Mosiah 5:1).
The response must have been gratifying to the aged king: “And they all cried with one voice, saying: Yea, we believe all the words which thou has spoken unto us; and also, we know of their surety and truth, because of the Spirit of the Lord Omnipotent, which has wrought a mighty change in us, or in our hearts, that we have no more disposition to do evil, but to do good continually” (Mosiah 5:2).
In his first book, "A Mighty Change," author Christopher Greenwood considers what it takes for faithful followers of Jesus Christ in the latter-days to achieve and maintain the same significant experience. Drawing from personal stories, scriptural accounts and messages from modern prophets, Greenwood examines attributes that will invite and affirm the "mighty change" experienced by King Benjamin’s people.
Beginning with the need to make an individual choice to obey, this book offers insight into some of the ways people can invite more of the Spirit of the Holy Ghost into their spiritual lives.
One of the steps involves a desire to look and see what else God would require. Quoting another Book of Mormon prophet, the author suggests that in order to begin the change, man must be “brought to the knowledge of the truth” (Helaman 15:7).
Other chapters in this volume focus on fasting, repentance, trials, service and personal revelation. Each is designed to help the reader consider necessary changes that will allow for a more abundant life.
Greenwood has assembled a well-thought-out guidebook that will assist any searcher who is interested in becoming a better Saint find the way. Not meant to replace the scriptures, this book can serve as a companion volume to the journey to achieve “a mighty change.”

A must have in addition to the standard works!

A Mighty Change: The Process of Going from Good to Better by Christopher R. Greenwood, explores the realistic possibility of change and the need for opposition. Chris has tackled the elephant of sin and broken it down into bite sized pieces of faith, repentance, humility, and service. Reading it has not only improved my ability to recognize what I need to do, but has also given me the hope to do something about it.

We can all choose between good and bad. That's easy. But choosing the greater good, in fact choosing the greatest good is very difficult at best; and that is what Mr. Greenwoods book is all about. This book will give you a quintessential road map to achieve a Mighty Change. From first time seekers of truth and inspiration to seasoned spiritual giants. This is the must have for your personal library.
