Summary from DeseretBook.com: “Take upon you my whole armor that ye may be able to withstand the evil day, having done all, that ye may be able to stand.” —D&C 27:15
These words are as true today as they were back in 1830 when Joseph Smith received them in revelation — almost more so as today’s youth face the growing challenges of our society. But now in this compact yet powerful book, today’s most beloved youth speakers explain how wearing that spiritual armor can not only help youth face those difficult challenges in life, but also conquer them.

This book is written by some of the most popular youth speakers there are in the LDS Church. I loved every one of the talks in this book, each one is short, but also very able to teach the youth about the important parts of the Armor of God. I really liked that there are QR codes and links scattered throughout the book. The way the world is going, technology really is becoming everything and especially to the youth! With this book, they are able to connect with the authors and see special videos with youth just like them. If you have the Deseret Bookshelf version, it's all included too! What a wonderful resource!

This book is written by many of the same authors who wrote Armor Up. The authors who wrote these books are just amazing. They are engaging, and entertaining, but at the same time, they teach the youth the things that they need to know. For this book each of the authors has taken a verse from D&C 4 and they discuss these verses in detail, describing how each one of the verses helps us to prepare for missionary service. I love the way there are links throughout this book to discussions and videos that the kids can watch and learn from. This book is perfect for all of those missionaries, missionaries to be and their parents!
