For some in the Church, the message of Christ does not fall on deaf ears, it falls on discouraged ears. Many of us feel defeated—like we never do enough and are forever falling short. Brad Wilcox points out that some people see only two options—being perfect or giving up. But learning takes time and practice. This book helps us re-examine how we view the Atonement and the process of change. Critics sometimes argue that Church members think we "earn" our way into heaven. Brother Wilcox teaches that we're not earning heaven, we are learning heaven. We're not working our way to heaven, we're preparing for it—practicing for it. Through simple, yet powerful analogies and moving personal experience, he teaches that one of the grand miracles of the Atonement is not just that we can be cleansed and consoled, but that we can be transformed.
