    1. This is an inspiring book - a compilation of Elder Wirthlin's talks. It contains so many important truths and reminders for finding peace, through Jesus Christ and His gospel. I love Elder Wirthlin's gentle teachings. I was particularly grateful for the reminder of his talk Without Guile from 1988 - such a classic and key to peace. I came away from this book with the clearer picture in my mind of the importance of having a pure heart, seeking the Lord, and being true, patient, and good. I'm grat [...]

    2. I love Elder Wirthlin! We got a lot of books for our wedding that were written by the apostles and I am ashamed to say that they have been sitting on our bookshelf mostly as decoration. So I decided it was time to actually read them. So, of course, I picked Elder Wirthlins first! It took a while to read because its just like reading a whole bunch of talkst very suspenseful if you know what I mean. His counsel and advice is golden and uplifting. Many times I would find things that would relate to [...]

    3. I really loved the messages in this book. It was very helpful. I must admit I took a really, really long time to read it, though. It's divided up into short chapters - each with it's own topic. So, I could read a little here and there. By the time I finished the book, I couldn't remember what the beginning was about!

    4. An insightful book. I first got this book to use in a lesson. I have read this several times and still go back to it. I still go back to this book and re-read this. Every time, I find something that strikes a chord. Elder Wirthlin touches on Basic doctrinal concepts in such an insightful way.

    5. I miss Joseph B Wirthlin's talks and his stick-to-it-ive-ness. I loved this book because each chapter was short, sweet, and to the point.
