About the cd: An ideal talk that supports the new 2015 Mutual theme!
In this motivating talk related to the 2015 youth theme, John Bytheway explains what it means to truly embark — to get fully on board in the service of God with all your heart, might, mind, and strength. Using scriptures, powerful stories, and his characteristic humor, John explains that with the Savior's help, we can remain on board and eventually stand blameless before God at the last day.
My review: This is a great talk on the new theme for the youth. I love the way that John Bytheway talks, he is really easy and fun to listen to. He not only has great jokes, but he's able to relate them to the hard things that the youth are going through. I love how he references prior conference talks and also the scriptures. There is a part where he talks about Alma the Younger that was particularly insightful. I loved how he talks to the youth about "staying on the train." This CD is great for youth or really anyone who would like to Embark in the service of our God.
I was sent a copy of this CD in exchange for an honest review.
