"This is your world. The future is in your hands. The outcome is up to you." With those simple words, President Thomas S. Monson urges a generation of young adult members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to find the best within themselves. He is joined in this exciting new book by the remaining members of the Church's First Presidency as well as all twelve members of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles.
With chapters such as "Recognizing Spiritual Promptings," "Applying the Atonement," "Uncovering Your Life's Work," "When Blessings Are Delayed," and many more, the Brethren address issues that are of particular interest and concern to young adults, though readers have found the counsel applicable to people of all ages. These bite-sized excerpts are perfect for pondering, sharing, and discussing.
Authoritative yet approachable, this uniquely designed and formatted book offers great insights on navigating life in challenging times. And what better source could there be for such insights than the fifteen men we sustain as prophets, seers, and revelators on the earth today?

What an excellent book! I loved the counsel on all kinds of topics that effect us in our lives in this day. It is wonderful to know that our prophets and leaders receive revelation for us! That they are also people, who experience trials and experience just as we are. That they can use the knowledge gained from their experiences to help instruct us. Just a great uplifting book!
This book is an excellent source for teens and their teachers or parents. This book is directed towards the youth but applies to all age groups. It is divided into several chapters. Each chapter covers one topic and it has a variety of short talks and quotes from the members of first presidency and the twelve. You can either read the book all the way through or just study a chapter at a time. Great book and proceeds go to the missionary fund. I would recommend it!
It was smaller than I expected, but I love the soft cover and it is an easy carry-around size. I love the length of the counsels - only a few paragraphs long. I also enjoy the quotes included at the start and in the middle of every chapter.
The best part for me is the fact these counsels come from young adult addresses - so many of them are unheard of by the general public. I recommend it to every member and anyone seeking guidance and inspiration in their lives.
