Anyone who truly wants a testimony of the Savior Jesus Christ and His Plan of Happiness can get one, but it takes more than wanting. It takes action. Whether you’ve been a member of the Church all your life, or you’re just exploring its teachings for the first time, this little book will help you see why basic, simple steps can make all the difference. It all depends on how much you want it. This book is suitable for the whole family.
How Much Do You Want It? came out of a class I taught in a youth class one Sunday.
Everyone has a unique perspective, but most of us have allowed society to program the way we process and react to the things around us. Most of us fall into very conventional patterns of what dominates our attention. The media shouts at us and tells us to focus on X, Y, and Z because they deem them important (and most likely lucrative).
But the truth remains, metaphorically or literally, that we see what we look at. What we see affects what we think about and how we feel, whether we’re looking in the mirror, or at the news, or into the neighbor’s yard. Do we see the bright smile, the medical break-through, and the blooming roses? Or do we focus on the thick waist, the local crime, and the dandelions getting ready to spew seeds?
This book offers 11 practical ways to change how you look at the world around you in order to find more happiness in daily life. This is suitable for the whole family.

Is there more coming?
Yes. I’m scribbling away at one called Get Thee Hence, Bully, written with my teen daughter and other young people I know in mind. There are several other titles and ideas that I keep in a folder in my files, and I’ll work my way through them gradually, most likely releasing about one a year.
