Power To Become by David A. Bednar

Finally, the 3rd book in David A. Bednar's Trilogy is now available.

Power To Become: Spiritual patterns for pressing forward with a steadfastness in Christ. 

Have you had a chance to read his other two books?

Increase In Learning: Spiritual patterns for obtaining your own answers.
Act In Doctrine: Spiritual patterns for turning from self to the Savior.

Are you are like my husband who loves these books so much he reads them slowly, digesting each little section a bite at a time? If you haven't had the chance to read these books I strongly suggest you do. They are also available as e-books which might work better financially for you.

Power To Become helps us discover how we can press forward towards Christ in a modern world. It offers necessary tools that we can use to invite the eternal blessings of the Atonement, personal peace, and priesthood ordinances into our lives.

Elder Bednar teaches us that,

Each of us can invite the Holy Ghost to help us assess "things as they really are" (Jacob 4:13) about our progress along the pathway of covenants, obedience, and service. He will teach us plainly and directly about the honesty of our hearts, about the contrite nature of our spirits, and about our willingness to observe our covenants by sacrifice, even every sacrifice which the Lord shall command. Being accepted of the Lord certainly is a key element in the affirmation that the course we are pursuing in this life is in accordance with God's holy mind and will. And such assurance can be received as we press forward in our mortal journey on the pathway to perfection. 
Oh, isn't that wonderful. Having the gift of the Holy Ghost is so important.

I recommend this book. I strongly recommend all of these books. If I had to choose one, I would start with the first in the Trilogy, but you can not go wrong with any of them. These books make an excellent addition to any library and would be a great gift for a friend.
