In the Last Days—Free on Kindle, January 23–27, 2016

Kindle CoverFrom January 23, 2016 to January 27, 2016, you can download the Kindle version of In the Last Days: A Brief Guide to Christ’s Second Coming for Latter-day Saints for free. It’s been free since its publication in November 2015 to Prime and Kindle Unlimited members, plus through Amazon Matchbook program. But during five days in late January, it will be free to anyone. Free, by the way, is a very good price.

This book examines a variety of scriptural passages that cast light on the Last Days, the Second Coming of Jesus Christ, the Millennium, and the end of the world. It retells events surrounding the Second Coming of Christ, mainly through the Standard Works of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints—the Bible, the Book of Mormon, the Doctrine and Covenants, and the Pearl of Great Price—but also through archaeological, historical, and statistical sources. It’s a compilation of posts from my blog “Put on the Armor of Light,” written between September 2014 and November 2015.

The Law of Attraction and the Scriptures, Second Edition

The Law of Attraction and the Scriptures, Second Edition - Kindle Cover - SmallIs the law of attraction real? If you have been wondering if the ideas presented by secular teachers of this law have any relevance to or a foundation in the scriptures, The Law of Attraction and the Scriptures, Second Edition is for you. This updated edition explores the law of attraction—also called the law of the harvest or the Royal Law—as revealed in the standard works of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints: The Bible, the Book of Mormon, the Doctrine and Covenants, and the Pearl of Great Price. The book discusses the background of the modern concept of the law of attraction, including:

• Newton’s Third Law of Motion (the Law of Reciprocal Actions)
• Newton’s Law of Universal Gravitation
• The zero-point field
• The role of positive thoughts and beliefs in our lives
• What the universe really is
• Why nothing is impossible with God
• How Jesus expressed affirmations
• The power of gratitude
• True wealth

By the way, I take a conservative approach. I willingly accept any principle that can be clearly supported by scripture. If it is not supported there, I don’t support in my writings.

During January 2016, you can purchase the Kindle edition for $2.99 (free on Kindle Unlimited or for members of Amazon Prime). A paperback version is also available.

A Method for Making Decisions

Making Decisions Kindle Cover 20140201Once upon a time, I was in turmoil over a life decision. A war was going on inside my heart and head, and I wasn’t quite sure which side was going to win.

I was eaten alive by a decision I was trying to make. Smack in the middle of it all, I discovered a powerful, step-by-step process for making decisions. I call it the reflection method.

That was over 30 years ago. Now I’m offering simple process I discovered to you.

Though deceptively simple, it has helped me calmly evaluate my options and make the best decisions of my life, ones that I have never regretted. I want to share the process with you in my book Making Decisions, now in its third edition.

In its pages I’ve spelled out a decision-making process in a simple workbook format so you can easily learn and apply the method. From it’s pages you’ll learn:

  • Seven easy steps that you can reuse over and over again.
  • A trick of using both the left and right sides of your brain.
  • One possible source of your inner battle is and how to win it.
  • How to arrange and prioritize your options in a progressively clearer way.
  • How to find out which options are more important to you than others.
  • The peace that comes from knowing you’ve made the right decision before and after you make it.

This method was a gift that came to me in the summer of 1981, just months before our first child was born. The decision I made that summer was one of the best I’ve made in my life. It stuck and has blessed my life in countless ways since. I hope it blesses your life too.
