BLOG TOUR w/ GIVEAWAY: The Decision that Changed My Life by Ganel-Lyn Condie

The decision that changed my life


Whether making life-changing choices or considering seemingly small day-to-day decisions, to choose oftentimes means to take a step into the unknown.

In The Decision That Changed My Life, author Ganel-Lyn Condie explores some of the life-altering choices made by sixteen notable and everyday Latter-day Saints and the chain of events that followed those decisions that affected other people's lives. From the broad impact of Janice Kapp Perry's course-changing decision to pursue music to the significance of Chris Carter's converting to the gospel as a young boy, each story demonstrates the potential ripple effects of our decisions. While following the promptings of the Spirit without a full understanding of the outcome requires great faith, sometimes making that one decision has the power to change our lives—and the world.


We all have times in our lives when we are required to make decisions that will we know will have a significant impact on our lives.  Often these are decisions that we really struggle with for whatever reason.  Do we take that promotion, what do we major in, do we date that person or this person?  All of these questions and the decisions we make in relation to those questions leave a mark on our lives.  This book takes a look at the experiences of people relating to those types of decisions and the consequences that came from those decisions.  And the book goes beyond the effects in our own lives to the effects in the lives of others around us.  The book focuses on the good and right decisions people made with the Lord's help that changed their lives as well as the lives of others.  I enjoyed reading these stories, both because the stories are inspiring and because it made me feel not so alone to read of other people's struggles and questions.  If you need a book that is both informative and inspiring and encouraging I can highly recommend this one.
