Author: Ted J. Peck
Ted J. Peck has worked with many young people facing an uncertain future and struggling with important decisions. They feel overwhelmed by regret for past behavior, doubt about their purpose, and fear of the big choices ahead of them. When bad things happen, they are often told that God is testing them. Yet for many, God’s voice seems hard to hear. In reality, God is ready and willing to shower his children with blessings — if only we choose to listen.
Using principles from scripture, common-sense reasoning, and anecdotes from Ted's life and work, this book shows LDS young people how to cut through the confusion and create a successful life with God’s help. Though this may come as a surprise, we’re all in control of what we experience in life. Truth helps us make better choices, and better choices create better consequences as we receive God's blessings. It’s that simple. Every chapter revolves around choices that are ours to make when we’re young. What it all comes down to is a new outlook on life- — one that positions us as beloved, blessed children of God, rather than targets of punishment and testing from a stern Father.
Whether you’re trying to figure out which school to attend, who to date, or how to repent after making a mistake, it’s easier than you think to follow God’s plan for you! Fun to read and easy to understand, this book is perfect for teens, young adults, and anyone looking for direction from our loving Father in Heaven.
