    Sheri Dew never disappoints. This is inspiring/motivational.

    I've always considered myself a Sheri Dew fan. Loved her biography of President Gordan B. Hinckley. Her book, No Doubt About It, is truly one of my favorites. I love her strength. I love her leadership. I love her honesty. However, I did not love this book. It seems beyond sacrilege to not love a church book, especially one with such a message, although I do admit to loving many parts of it. Her masterful references to scriptures, appropriate analogies to really drive a point home and self-depri I've always considered myself a Sheri Dew fan. Loved her biography of President Gordan B.

It seems beyond sacrilege to not love a church book, especially one with such a message, although I do admit to loving many parts of it. Her masterful references to scriptures, appropriate analogies to really drive a point home and self-deprication are spot on, as usual. But, there is a judgmental tone throughout the book that left a slight unpleasant feeling afterwards. For instance, there is a part of the book where she is talking about our power and being powerful (I know...shocker) and mentions a young adult (or young woman. I can't quite remember) coming up to her after her talk to thank her for her message and how touched and motivated she was. All Sheri Dew seemed to notice was how the girl was dressed. Apparently, her dress standards weren't as stringent as a 50 year old woman and I felt sad that she pointed it out in her book. It made her story...less. Yes, bring up modesty and all of its power, but don't do it that way. Judging someone without their knowledge is never fair. I just didn't like it. There are a few more instances, one involving overhearing other women at her workplace (which, I assume, is Deseret Book) discussing an Oprah show and her interrupting by quizzing them on how it compared to a certain General Authority's talk on the subject matter. Of course, they didn't know, or couldn't remember and she and felt disgusted by these women for not knowing. Maybe it's my shameful knowledge that I wouldn't meet her standards that has me feeling judged and combative, but there is a slight tinge of rancor throughout the entire book. It isn't solely uplifting, or encouraging. At least, not without pulling some others down along the way. Lastly, she refers many times to some extremely difficult circumstances in her personal life. It's always vague and always...unhelpful. I feel like, if you're going to use something as an example, explain it. Don't dance around it. And if you don't want to share, don't. Only sort of, kind of, hinting of your problems isn't really sharing them. Obviously, there is much good stuff. I probably should have focused on that in my review, but sadly, the power of the book was weakened considerably by my inability to get past the negative and her inability to solely focus on the positive.

    I love Sheri Dew, and while this wasn't necessarily a page-turner, it has real depth and wisdom, and I found myself marking things on nearly every page. I think it's going to take some time (and probably a little re-reading) to digest. For example, early in the book, she says, "The simple fact is that our Father did not recommend Sarah or Moses or Nephi or countless other magnificent exemplars for this dispensation. He recommended you and me." !! That is a mind-bender, for sure.

It isn't possible to buy enough to be happy, or to entertain or indulge or pamper ourselves enough to be happy. It is not possible to hide enough or run far enough away from trials and troubles to be happy. Happiness and joy come only when we are living up to who we are."

    Notes from - GOD WANTS A POWERFUL PEOPLE by, Sheri Dew (If there is no name given then I'm quoting the author.) CHAPTER 1 - GOD WANTS A POWERFUL PEOPLE - "Do you think there is any chance The Lord would have inspired His prophets to prophesy about us, only to then take a chance on the outcome of the latter days by sending men and women He couldn't count on? There is no chance - ZERO CHANCE - He would have done that." "For the Last Days are not for the faint of heart or the spiritually out of shape Notes from - GOD WANTS A POWERFUL PEOPLE by, Sheri Dew (If there is no name given then I'm quoting the author.) CHAPTER 1 - GOD WANTS A POWERFUL PEOPLE - "Do you think there is any chance The Lord would have inspired His prophets to prophesy about us, only to then take a chance on the outcome of the latter days by sending men and women He couldn't count on? There is no chance - ZERO CHANCE - He would have done that." "For the Last Days are not for the faint of heart or the spiritually out of shape. There will be days when we feel defeated, exhausted, and plain old beat up by life's whiplash. People will disappoint us - and we will disappoint them. . . In fact, we can count on experiencing trials that will test our testimony, our obedience, and our faith - because how do we know if we really have a testimony, if we'll really obey, if we really want to be honest and chaste and virtuous, and if we really believe in Jesus Christ, if those things aren't put to the test." "The simple fact is that our Father did not recommend Sarah or Moses or Nephi or countless other magnificent exemplars for this dispensation. He recommended you and me." CHAPTER 2 - HOW GOD SHARES HIS POWER- "The adversary is a snake in the grass, lying wait not only to deceive but to strike and, if possible, spiritually poison and even kill." "Here are some of the ways God makes His power available to us: 1. There is power in the word of God. "A casual understanding of the gospel will not sustain us through the days ahead, which is why it is imperative that we immerse ourselves in the word of God." 2. There is power in the gift of the Holy Ghost. "Have you ever asked The Lord to teach you how He communicated with you?" President Boyd K. Packer said that every Latter-day Saint "has not only the right but the obligation to understand what the Gift of the Holy Ghost is. . . We too often use it so little and so infrequently." 3. There is power in the Priesthood. There is power in ordinances. "For it is the power of the priesthood that marks, clears, and protects the path leading to eternal life." 4. There is power in the House of The Lord. "There have been weeks upon weeks when the only peace I felt was while in the temple." 5. There is power in purity. "As we think about purity, we may wish to consider including in our self-evaluation what we watch, read, listen to, and take into our minds." 6. There is power in the Atonement of Jesus Christ. "Because of His Atonement, we have access to His grace, or enabling power, and to His redemptive power - power that frees us from sin; power to be healed emotionally, physically, and spiritually; power to mend our broken hearts . . . Power to do good works; power to turn weakness into strength." CHAPTER 3 - DRAWING UPON THE POWERS OF HEAVEN - 1st Faith, Elder James E. Talmage taught that "faith is of itself a principle of power; and by its presence or absence, by its fullness or paucity, even The Lord was and is influenced, and in great measure controlled, in the bestowal or withholding of blessings; for He ministers according to law, and not with caprice or uncertainty." "If your faith is wobbly, if you're not sure The Lord will come to your aid, experiment . . . Unshaken faith activates the power of God in our lives . . . " 2nd Repent. "What favorite sins, large or small, are you willing to give away, - right now, today - in order to increase your access to the power of God?" 3rd Seek. "Seek me diligently and ye shall find me; ask, and ye shall receive; knock, and it shall be opened unto you." D&C 88:63 "We are the only ones who set limits - through our neglect or disobedience or ignorance." "You can be a leader. You must be a leader . . . The adversary of all truth would put into your heart a reluctance to make an effort. Cast that fear aside and be valiant in the cause of truth and righteousness." Gordon B. Hinckley CHAPTER 4 - GOING FORWARD BY BACKING UP - "Learning to change - and being willing to change - are crucial virtues in our eternal progression. And changing usually involves backing up." She shares the Parable of the Street Lamp in which somehow she gets a street lamp stuck under her car and discovers that the only way to get it unstuck - so that she can move forward again - is to back up. There are three lessons we learn from this parable: 1. When there's no light it's dark 2. When our forward progress stops, it almost always starts with something small. 3. When things aren't going well, the solution is often simply to back up, or in other words repent. "When people fall, they do not suddenly stop believing in the atonement; they simply start believing in their impulses. Their discipline disappears as their perspective shrinks. Irrationality replaces illumination." Elder Neal A. Maxwell "The irony is in order to continue Onward and Upward, we often have to back up and change something about our attitude, our approach, our habits, our mistakes, our understanding." CHAPTER 5 - YOU CAN FIGHT FIRE WITH FIRE - "Fire is used to typify the glory and power of God, sanctification, and even The Lord Jehovah himself on the one hand, and hell and damnation on the other." "The only way to fight the fire and brimstone of hell . . . Is through the fire of faith in The Lord Jesus Christ." "The only way to fight the fire that destroys is with the fire that sanctifies." "There is good reason to do things early. 'He that seeketh me early shall find me' (D&C 88:83). That injunction could mean many things; early in the morning, early in the day, early in a relationship, early in a marriage, early in a family, early when trouble strikes or when we sin or make a mistake, early when we're discouraged, disappointed or sad, early when we feel loneliness setting in, early when we're not quite sure how to teach a child or handle a complicated situation. Early." "The great test of life is . . . Not to endure storms, but to choose the right while they rage." President Eyring CHAPTER 6 - MORTALS MAKE MISTAKES - "Who has not heard and felt the enticing of the devil? His voice often sounds so reasonable and his message so easy to justify. It is an appealing, intriguing voice with dulcet tones. It is neither hard nor discordant. No one would listen to Satan's voice if it sounded harsh or mean. If the devil's voice were unpleasant, it would not persuade people to listen to it." President James E. Faust Beware of the Five P's: Pride, Possessions, Power, Popularity, Pleasures of the flesh. "The only way to deal with Satan is to evict him and not give him or his temptations opportunity to take hold." "Coming unto Christ means walking away from the world." CHAPTER 7 - POWER AND THE RESTORATION - 10 things we can learn from the life and ministry of Joseph Smith 1. God knows who we are, where we are, what our mission is, and exactly what we need to accomplish that mission. 2. Satan is the father of contention, confusion, pride, and anger. The only way to counteract the confusion of Lucifer is to seek The Lord. 3. The word of God opens the windows of heaven. 4. Faith is the key to gaining access to the power of God. 5. Satan has marvelous power, but the power of Jesus Christ is far greater. 6. God trusts and talks to the weak and simple, including youth. 7. Those who are converted to Jesus Christ must stand as witnesses of Him at all times and in all things and in all places. Sometimes that means standing alone. 8. Critics seize every opportunity to demean the Lord's anointed, focusing on any perceived weakness. 9. The Lord tutors us line upon line, and He knows the end from the beginning. 10. There is no limit or end to the influence of a righteous man or woman who has a testimony of Jesus Christ, the Prophet Joseph Smith, and the restoration of the gospel. CHAPTER 8 - THE BLESSINGS OF THE HOLY PRIESTHOOD "Women do not have the responsibility of officiating in the ordinances of the priesthood and directing the affairs of the church. In turn, men do not have the privilege or responsibility of bringing spirit sons and daughters into mortality and taking a leading role in their nurture. Clearly, the Lord established a division of responsibility between women and men that in His wisdom allows maximum potential for the growth, development, and nurturing of His children as well as His kingdom, both on a grand scale as well as one-on-one." ". . . The terms priesthood power and priesthood bearers are often used interchangeably - which can lead to misunderstanding." Elder Bruce R. McConkie - "the doctrine of the priesthood - unknown in the world and but little known even in the Church - cannot be learned out of the scriptures alone . . . The doctrine of the priesthood is known only by personal revelation." James E. Talmage - "[in] the house of the Lord, woman shares with man the blessings of the priesthood . . . Then shall woman reign by Divine right, a queen in the resplendent realm of her glorified state . . . Mortal eye cannot see nor mind comprehend the beauty, glory, and majesty of a righteous woman made perfect in the celestial kingdom of God." More James E. Talmage - "Women of the Church share the authority of the Priesthood with their husbands, actual or prospective; and therefore women . . . Are not ordained to a specific rank in the Priesthood. Nevertheless there is no grade, rank, or phase of the temple endowment to which women are not eligible on an equality with men." October 1977 General Conference, Elder Bruce R. McConkie's "ten blessings of the priesthood." Men and women alike have access to these blessings. " . . . Some will try to convince Latter-day Saint women that because they are not ordained to hold the priesthood, they have been shortchanged, and Latter-day Saint men that women are second-class citizens in the kingdom of God. Those who believe these and other lies about men and women in the gospel kingdom are either uninformed, flat-out wrong, or deceived, for they do not understand the doctrines of the gospel of Jesus Christ." Chapter 9 - TRUE FOLLOWERS - What is a True Follower? First, a True Follower is willing to walk away from the world. She shares one of Aesop's fables, "The Sick Lion," then says, "the moral of the story is obvious: Just as the fox didn't believe the lion, you can't believe everything you hear." Second, a True Follower believes Jesus is the CHRIST, and is striving to increase his or her faith in Him. C. S. Lewis: ". . . The conflict is not between faith and reason but between faith and sight." Third, a True Follower is humble enough to obey and repent. "A day doesn't go by that I'm not aware that I need to be better." ??? Fourth, a True Follower is a diligent seeker. C.S. Lewis: "the trouble is that relying on God has to begin all over again every day as if nothing had yet been done." "True Followers don't "find time" to go to the temple, they set it as a priority first and work other things around it." Fifth, a True Follower desires to follow Christ. "None of us is perfect. We make mistakes everyday. But we can become perfect in our desire to follow Christ." Sixth, a True Follower has the sense that, despite imperfections and weaknesses, his or her life is in harmony with the Lord's will. "A True Follower has the faith necessary to reconcile himself to the will of the Lord and go forward - praying there will be either a lamb in the thicket, as Abraham experienced with Isaac on Mt. Moriah, or unexpected protection and safety, as with Daniel in the Lion's den." Seventh, a True Follower seeks to be more pure. [Satan] has turned what the Lord intended to be the most sublime and pure expression of love between a husband and a wife into something casual and even tawdry . . ." Elder Dallin H. Oaks: "the power to create mortal life is the most exalted power God has given his children." Eighth, a True Follower looks like a True Follower. Elder Jeffery R. Holland: "Choose your clothing the way you would choose your friends - in both cases choose that which improves you and would give you confidence standing in the presence of God. Good friends would never embarrass you, demean you, or exploit you. Neither should your clothing." Ninth, a True Follower understands that some things and some places are holy. Elder Jeffery R. Holland: ". . . We have always been invited to present our best selves inside and out when entering the house of the Lord - and a dedicated LDS chapel is a 'house of the Lord'. Our clothing or footwear need never be expensive, . . . But neither should it appear that we are on our way to the beach." "Particularly among women, there is a regrettable tendency to wear into the chapel and then partake of the emblems of the sacrament in the same clothing one might wear to the mall or the park or even, as Elder Holland suggested, to the beach." Tenth, a True Follower is a leader, and in order to lead, one must first learn to follow. "An old Arabic proverb says that an army of sheep led by a lion will defeat an army of lions led by a sheep." "In today's world, there are too many good people with no convictions and too many evil people filled with conviction." Elder Jeffery R. Holland: "Something is going to be asked of this dispensation that's never been asked before. Those of this dispensation must be ready to present the Church of the Lamb, to the Lamb, and when that happens we must be looking and acting like His Church."

    I absolutely LOVE Sheri Dew, her books are great reads & this book was no exception! Some of my favorite quotes were: Our mission on Earth is designed to change us. It is designed to transform us. To give us the chance to be wise even though separated from the presence of our Father, to strip ourselves of uncleanness, to refuse to yield to temptation, and to choose not to consume our probation upon our lusts but to serve the true & living God. It is the Holy Ghost who converts, teaches, & inspires. I absolutely LOVE Sheri Dew, her books are great reads & this book was no exception!

To give us the chance to be wise even though separated from the presence of our Father, to strip ourselves of uncleanness, to refuse to yield to temptation, and to choose not to consume our probation upon our lusts but to serve the true & living God. It is the Holy Ghost who converts, teaches, & inspires. It is the Holy Ghost and His power that moves us, impressing ideas & concepts upon our hearts & minds that we've never thought about before or even believed, changing us over time. He gives us the power to feel peace, comfort, & reassurance even when circumstances in life are not peaceful, comforting, or reassuring. Prophets, seers, and revelators have repeatedly likened our day to that of Sodom & Gomorrah. Such constant access & exposure to evil & evil-doing unfortunately breeds familiarity, then tolerance, followed by begrudging acceptance, and finally endorsement. God never intended us to face the perils of mortality alone, having only our own strength, wisdom, & power to draw upon. We can count on experiencing trials that will test our testimony, our obedience, & our faith- because how do we know if we really have a testimony, if we'll really obey, if we really want to be honest & chaste & virtuous, and if we really believe in Jesus Christ, if those things aren't put to the test. The rising generation is the finest this world has ever seen. Period. I've met too many of them in too many parts of the world to ever convince me otherwise. Snakes are a fitting metaphor for Satan & his tactics. They hide by blending in with their surroundings. Satan is everywhere today, waiting to strike at his next victim. Where there is immorality, contention, violence, perversion, or addiction, there is Satan. Moses, received strength & called upon God, saying: "In the name of the Only Begotten, depart hence, Satan". Satan's power is temporary & will end (in fact, he's running out of time, and he knows it, which is why his devices are more desperate & extreme than ever before). God's power is absolute & endless. "You are sent to this earth not merely to have a good time or to satisfy urges or passions or desires. You are sent to this earth, not to ride merry-go-rounds, airplanes, automobiles, and have what the world calls 'fun'. You are sent to this world with a very serious purpose. You are sent to school, for that matter, to begin as a human infant & grow to unbelievable proportions in wisdom, judgment, knowledge, and power." -Spencer W. Kimball Doctrine gains its power as the Holy Ghost confirms that it is true. The Lord will teach us directly as much truth as we are worthy & willing to learn. Priesthood power is the power & authority of God delegated to men on earth. Those who hold the priesthood have the right to say what the Lord would say if He were here. Whatever they bind on earth is bound in heaven. Couples worthy to be sealed at an altar in that holy house are gifted with power. Priesthood power binds heaven & earth, subdues the adversary, blesses & heals, & enables us to triumph over mortality. Those who receive their endowment are endowed or gifted with power, & they emerge from the temple clothed in & armed with that power. From that time forward, if they keep their covenants, they are never alone, nor are they ever defenseless. Our spirits have the remarkable capacity of being able to retain everything with which they've ever come in contact. Although in this sphere we deal with the constraints of mortality, our spirits are nonetheless receiving and cataloging everything we take into our hearts & minds. It is because of the Atonement that, if we build our foundation on Christ, the devil can have no power over us. We are wanderers in a strange land, pilgrims on a pilgrimage to return to our Father's presence Pre-existence We are sons & daughters removed for a season from the direct presence of our Father & the heavenly host with whom we became so familiar & by whom we were likely taught during our premortality.Presidnet Joseph Fielding Smith explained why we have such a desire to return to the presence of the Father: "There is not a soul in this room, not one, that has not seen him. You do not remember it, I do not remember it, but nevertheless there was a time before we ever came into this world when we dwelt in his presence. We knew what kind of a being he is. One thing we saw was how glorious he is. Another thing, how great was his widsom, his understanding, how wonderful was his power and his inspiration. And we wanted to be like him. And because we wanted to be like him, we are here...... We saw him in his glory & it was made known to us that by keeping his commandments & observing every covenant that would be given to us on this earth, we could come back again into his presence". Although our period of probation requires us to endure & triumph over a telestial environment, in the Father's grand mercy, He has not required us to brave this experience alone- meaning, without Him. Mortality may be a test, but it is an open book test. It is not possible to sin enough to be happy. It isn't possible to buy enough to be happy, or to entertain or indulge or pamper ourselves enough to be happy. It is not possible to hide enough or run far enough away from trials & troubles to be happy. Happiness & joy come only when we are living up to who we are. For we were born to lead. We were born to build Zion. We were born for glory. This life is not about perfection, but progression. To be valiant in the testimony of Jesus is to take the Lord's side on every issue. It is to vote as he would vote. It is to think what he thinks, to believe what he believes, to say what he would say & do what he would do in the same situation. These days the adversary is attacking & creating confusion about everything central to the plan of salvation. Lucifer is working overtime to undermine & even eradicate the need for marriage, to emasculate men, & to portray women as trivial objects without influence. Nothing the world can offer has the enduring joy of eternal motherhood and fatherhood. God knows who we are, where we are, what our mission is, and exactly what we need to accomplish that mission. He knows our names. He chose us to come now, during the eleventh hour, because he knows he can count on us to do what we promised to do in mortality. Contention impedes the Spirit. Whenever there is confusion, contention, or darkness, Satan is present & exercising influence. Darkness comes in many ways. It comes in the form of discouragement & despair, heartache & loneliness, deception & distraction. Joseph [Smith] was but 14 when he saw the Father & the Son, just 17 when Moroni visited him, only 21 when he was entrusted with the gold plates & their translation, and just 24 when he organized the church. Those who are converted to Jesus Christ must stand as a witness of Him at all times & in all things & places. Sometimes that means standing alone. It is wrong to assume that the more righteous one is, or the more diligently one strives to keep his/her covenants with the Lord, the less suffering one will have to endure. The promise is that he/she will be blessed, though the blessing may be the strength to endure suffering. Lucifer seems particularly determined to devour marriages & families, because their demise threatens to destabilize not only mortal society but the salvation of all involved & the vitality of the Lord's kingdom itself. We are here to fulfill the measure of our creation & the wonderful missions for which we've been sent to earth. We are here to determine by our actions if we want to be part of the kingdom of God more than we want anything else. "Every good gift & every perfect gift is from above". -James 1:17 (This makes me think of my new baby Logan) Following the Savior with a true & honest heart is something we are all capable of doing. Everyone starts at a different place & has different obstacles & challenges with which to grapple, and most of us are not anywhere close to perfect. A True Follower of Christ is willing to walk away from the world. It is dangerous to take counsel from anyone whose primary motive is building his or her own kingdom rather than the Lord's. Who do we trust & to whom are we listening.....the world or the Lord? A True Follower of Christ believes in Jesus & is striving to increase their faith in Him. "The power to create mortal life is the most exalted power God has given his children". Satan doesn't want those who have bodies to realize that receiving a body is part of God's great plan of happiness. Walk through any airport or public place, & you'll see people whom you could have seen only in a carnival just a few years back. Brazenly immodest clothing that is nothing more than underwear masquerading as everyday apparel. In today's world, there are too many good people with no conviction, and too many evil people filled with conviction. C.S. Lewis wrote, "There is no neutral ground in the universe: every square inch, every split second, is claimed by God & counterclaimed by Satan."

    Don't let the three star rating fool you. Sheri Dew inspires me. Her writing is based on everything I've already read and known (because most of what she writes is quoting someone else). She sets it down in a precise and factual way. My rating is based more on literary appeal and style, whereas this book is pure substance: Substance that renews my faith and sets me back on course.

    I really like the way sheri dew tells her stories in a conversational matter. Maybe I didn't get the flow of this book because I was so sporadic in reading it, but I felt like I could have read the first three and the last chapters and been good to go. She also writes No One Can Take Your Place. That is a great book. In all fairness, the first few chapters of this book led to a serious examination of just how much of God's power I have in my life.

    I was a bit disappointed by this book. I couldn't quite put my finger on is at I read, but many of the others who have reviewed this book summed it up better than I can. In essence, it just seemed simple. To be sure, the content was spot on, and the principles discussed are great. But the organization was loose, the analyses/stories were not all that compelling, and the entire thing seemed a bit "fluffy".

    This book is an expansion of one of Sheri Dew's previous talks about God wanting-NEEDING- a powerful people to help spread the gospel to the world. Pulling from many various speakers, both within and out of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, as well as her insight, she describes what it takes to be a true follower and example of Christ. This is really not a quick read.

    A powerful book on transforming our lives with God's power. While it's stuff we all ready know, Sister Dew has a way to infuse it and make us think about it in a way that inspires and uplifts. Favorite quotes: Although our period of probation requires us to endure and triumph (with God's help) over a terrestial environment, in the Father's grand mercy, He has not required us to brave this experience alone-- meaning, without Him.

    I really appreciate Dew's candid style of writing - she doesn't beat around the bush when it comes to doing the right things for the right reasons. I enjoyed this book and really realized that there are many things I need to do to change. I liked the range she covered and all the quotes, scriptures and stories to back up everything she says about living better and following the doctrine.

    This book was really good. It goes over things that we all know but hits home in reminding us of things we may have forgotten. Helps to see things in a different way... Has a great chapter on why women don't hold / don't need to hold the priesthood. This book was really good.

    Another great book by Sheri Dew. This book left me feeling that I can do much better and be much better. She makes living the gospel sound so easy and simple.

    I enjoyed this book. I probably could have spent a lot more time with it. I especially like Sister Dew's stories, the way she expresses her feelings, and her personal testimony. This book shows how to be a true follower of Jesus Christ. It has made me want to try harder to do the things I know I should do and to not do things I shouldn't. She makes some very important points on how we can experience God's power in our lives. I want and need His power in my life. I like what she says about the pr I enjoyed this book.

She makes some very important points on how we can experience God's power in our lives. I want and need His power in my life. I like what she says about the priesthood, temples, covenants, miracles, divine intervention, and righteous living. I've been reading a lot of self-help books lately and listening to self-help podcasts. Sister Dew shares an experience she was having with some coworkers. They were discussing a problem that was beautifully addressed in a recent General Women's Conference. None of the women had watched the conference or read the talk, but several of them had seen the topic discussed on Oprah; they'd even recorded the Oprah episode, but they didn't have time to watch or inclination to record the Women's Conference. In a way, I get it. There are good people in the world with truth and great answers. I think that's okay if they lead us to (or at least not away from) Jesus Christ and His teachings. I think they can be great resources. Sometimes people will say something in such a way that I actually hear and understand better than other sources. Yet, so much pure truth is available to us through modern prophets, apostles, sister leaders, and scriptures. I think there's room for truth in whatever form it speaks to us. I also think it's important to prioritize. If we neglect primary sources we may receive and possibly eventually prefer a watered-down version of the truth. I was reminded to be careful who I follow and to not neglect God's ordained servants. Sister Dew says to not follow anyone who is solely building their own kingdom. There's a lot of people with good intentions who are mostly focused on building up themselves. There's a lot of relying only on oneself. I don't want to be deceived or sucked into half truths. (Added after I posted my review: It's interesting to me that another reviewer had a lot of trouble with Sister Dew's criticism of these ladies missing the Conference but not missing Oprah. The same person also didn't like how Sister Dew points out immodesty. The reviewer admits that maybe it's because she [the reviewer] personally didn't measure up to the standard. I don't think Sister Dew's point is to judge these ladies. I think she is presenting ideals in this book. What can we change? What can we give up? That doesn't make us bad or judged. It just means we're missing blessings we could have otherwise. I took her words as helpful rather than critical or judgemental. It's true, we do tend to be our own worst critics. Sister Dew is a representative of ideals. I'm sure she's loving. She just happens to notice social trends that could lead some of us away from experiencing God's blessings and power.) I like many quotes she gives. This quote she shared from Elder Neal A. Maxwell is one that rings true and is something I've witnessed that I've tried to understand: "When people fall, they do not suddenly stop believing in the atonement they simply start believing in their impulses. Their discipline disappears as their perspective shrinks." It's easy to think we can live without God in the world. The more I experience in life the more I realize I do not want to live without God and His power in my life. I actually read the Kindle version of this book, but that edition isn't listed. I know it doesn't really matter.

    I really enjoyed this one. It took me a while to get through, I'd pick it up and read then set it down and come back later, many, many days later. But I wanted to make sure I finish the books I started this year so I picked it up and finished it today. I wish I would have finished it sooner but I believe that what I read the last part is what I was needing to hear now because a lot of it pertains to what I have been thinking and contemplating in my life. To me God is good, he is truly my loving I really enjoyed this one. It took me a while to get through, I'd pick it up and read then set it down and come back later, many, many days later. But I wanted to make sure I finish the books I started this year so I picked it up and finished it today. I wish I would have finished it sooner but I believe that what I read the last part is what I was needing to hear now because a lot of it pertains to what I have been thinking and contemplating in my life. To me God is good, he is truly my loving and living Father in Heaven and I know without a doubt that he has lead and guided me my whole life. Now that doesn't mean that it followed what my plans always were but after being led a different way than what I thought was best, and seeing the outcome afterwards I have always been amazed that the path other than my designs was far greater and far richer than anything I could have come up with on my own. That also doesn't mean that life has been easy and a fun breeze. There have been plenty of harder moments with the easy moments. I wouldn't trade those struggles and sorrows for anything and would live them again in a heartbeat because they have brought me to be the person I am today. I'm far from perfect but I live every day trying to be better and do better than yesterday. Some days I fail miserably and others I succeed but regardless of the day I survive, only through the strength of my Savior Jesus Christ. This book brings out so many wonderful points about us living our lives with Faith and building upon that faith in following Christ. Line upon line, precept upon precept. Faith is an important building block that draws us closer to Christ and in so doing teaches us to be humble, to submit ourselves to His will. There are so many blessings, gifts, endowments and bestowments that are in store and waiting for us, to protect and strengthen us, to help us do better and be better. Those all can be ours, and will be as we turn to the Lord and work to humble ourselves and be his hands. At the end of this book as Sheri Dew is coming to a close she quoted Winston Churchill, during one of his speeches during the darker days of WWII. I loved it and thought it applies so perfectly to us in our lives and all we do. Churchill says "Come then: let us to the task, to the battle, to the toil-each to our part, each to our station. Fill the armies, rule the air, pour out the munitions, strangle the U-boats, sweep the mines, plough the land, build the ships, guard the streets, succor the wounded, uplift the downcast, and honour the brave. Let us go forward together in all parts of the Empire, in all parts of the Island. THERE IS NOT A WEEK, NOR A DAY, NOR AN HOUR TO LOSE." (I added the emphasis because I love that part). Even though that was back during WWII it still can and does apply to us. God needs a powerful people and we are they! We can't sit by doing nothing, we must rise up together and go to and prepare every needful thing, succor and lift each other, do all within our power and capabilities to follow Him and gain those strengthening and lifting gifts he has waiting for us. Both the gifts to see us through our mortal lives and the gifts we will inherit in the eternities. I can't, after reading the inspired messages from this book sit back and, not write my thoughts and feelings and impressions from these words. God wants a powerful people and we can be those people, even if we don't achieve greatness in the eyes of everyone, even if it's through small acts of goodness and kindness. We can be great. Happy Reading!!!

    This was an uplifting, motivational, inspiring book. I just love Sheri L. Dew. The focus of the book is to explain two comforting concepts: "First, we can know that we are here now because we are supposed to be here now, and we came trailing clouds of glory, fully prepared for the unique challenges and complexities we would face in the latter part of the latter days. Second, we can understand that God wants a powerful people, and He has made it possible for us to have access to His power, for He This was an uplifting, motivational, inspiring book. I just love Sheri L. Dew. The focus of the book is to explain two comforting concepts: "First, we can know that we are here now because we are supposed to be here now, and we came trailing clouds of glory, fully prepared for the unique challenges and complexities we would face in the latter part of the latter days. Second, we can understand that God wants a powerful people, and He has made it possible for us to have access to His power, for He never intended us to face the perils of mortality alone, having only our own strength, wisdom, and power to draw upon." Dew sprinkles her book with powerful stories, to illustrate her messages. One of my favorite stories was of the conversion of a European university professor. Two missionaries: young, inexperienced young men, versus her wall full of Ph.D. diplomas (one was in theology), but she accepted their invitation to read the Book of Mormon. This is what she said after devouring the Book of Mormon, Doctrine & Covenants, Pearl of Great Price, all of James E. Talmage's writings, and several other volumes of Church doctrine: "After years of studying philosophy, I picked up the D&C and read a few verses that answered some of the greatest questions of Aristotle and Socrates. When I read those verses, I wept. I don't think you know what you have. The world is starving for what you have. I am like a starving person being led to a feast. And over these eight and a half weeks I have been able to feast in a way I have never known possible." Dew cites scripture and prophets to clearly show us that God does, indeed, want a powerful people. He wants us to be strong and secure. She gives the steps in which we may become the powerful people Heavenly Father wants us to be, she also clears up some common misconceptions (for truth/knowledge/wisdom is power). One that I wasn't fully clear on was the idea that we will never be tempted beyond that which we can bear. Dew points out that the scriptures are clear about this promise being CONDITIONAL. "We are counseled to humble ourselves before the Lord, to call on His holy name, and to watch and pray continually so that we will not be tempted above that which we can bear. In other words, the promise is based upon our righteous actions (see Alma 13: 28-29)." Her book continues to be one of hope as she talks about suffering, loss, and sin. She also talks quite a bit about motherhood and reminds us what we've been taught in Scripture and by our prophets about this role, as well as pouring her heart out about her own testimony of motherhood. It's so incredibly powerful and touching. She also talks about our different roles as women and men, and how this connects with the Priesthood... so very interesting and EMPOWERING! There is so SO much more I've learned from this book, but I've gotta stop typing. Maybe I'll add the rest later. I'll just end by saying "read the book!"

    This book started out kind of slow to me then got way better the more I read. I especially liked the last three chapters that deal with the powers of the restoration, the blessings of the Priesthood, and being a true follower of Christ.

I think the important word is 'might'. Powers of the Restoration key points From and through Joseph Smith we learn 1. The heavens are open, that God will talk to his children, 2. that God does indeed want powerful people who know how to have access to His power for the benefit of their own lives as well as those they lead and serve, 3. that God will reveal all mysteries, 4. that ultimately God will give us everything - if we qualify, 5. that because the gospel has been restored to the earth, we are not alone in this vale of tears. The blessings of the Holy Priesthood - The entire chapter was brilliant True Followers 1. are willing to walk away from the world 2. believes Jesus is the Christ and is striving to increase his or her faith in Him. 3. is humble enough to obey and repent. 4. is a diligent seeker. 5. desires to follow Christ. 6. has the sense that, despite imperfections and weaknesses, his or her life is in harmony with the Lord's will. 7. seeks to be more pure. 8. looks like a true follower - great discussion on modesty!!! 9. understands that some things and some places are holy. 10. is a leader, and in order to lead, must first learn to follow.

I have the right to access powers from on high. What a compelling message! My relationship to Deity and Providence is not just one of unresounding love and compassion, but is also one of obligation, meaning He will be there to help me no matter what I am going through. Loved it and love Sheri Dew!

    This was our spiritual book gift from Grandma T for Christmas 2008. She always gives a spiritual book, signs the inside, and encourages us to read it as a couple. I read it on my own, though. I'm calling this Read so that I can stop looking at it on my currently-reading list, where it's been for most of the year. I've read 140 of 205 pages (7 out of 9 chapters), and I don't know if I'm likely to read more. If I do read more, I'll come back and change this review. I'm about 50-50 on Sheri Dew.

What's wrong with me that I need so many pep talks?) This book was well written and inspiring, but I'm tired of reading it. The book is based off a talk she gave, and I think I would have liked her shorter talk-version better.

That is why we are instructed to read the BofM over and over, because by starting over we can learn something completely new or expound on our knowledge.

    There are only a few books that, once I finish reading them, I want to own. That's why I'm a huge fan of the library. This one, however, I will be looking to add to MY library.

    I love this topic. I think there is so much that we are missing in our lives, because we do not know how to access God's power. Sheri Dew puts things very simply. She is not complicated with her speech, thus she gives us the opportunity to read and understand quickly. The question is what will we do with the information. Interestingly enough, her outline of how we access God's power: Nothing we haven't heard before. My favorite quote from the book is actually two questions. "Will you learn to acc I love this topic.

    I was disappointed with this book, and frankly, disappointed that I was disappointed. I love anything by Sheri Dew, but her most recent book seems to be a collaboration of things I've heard her say before and/or remarks that just didn't hit me like I needed at the time. I was looking for a spiritual uplift and I found myself trudging through this like one trudges through snow that's up to their knees. I confess I never even finished it (which is something I rarely do) but I needed to move on. I was disappointed with this book, and frankly, disappointed that I was disappointed.
