Blog Tour - The Decision That Changed My Life


About the book: 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.

My review: This book is so great! I loved the way that it is written. There is a chapter about a person and the thing that really changed the direction of their life. And then the next chapter is a ripple effect, someone who personally knows the first person talks about how the first person directly effected their life. I LOVED that! I think a lot of times we effect others lives and we never even know that we did, let alone how we did.

Some of the stories are about notable people, but some were about people that I have never heard of before and each of the stories touched my heart in some way or another. One of them that did was one of the survivors from the Cokeville bombing of 1985. Her story was amazing, and it brought me to tears. And I really loved reading about T.C. Christensen and his movies...and I really enjoyed reading about the author's life in this one too. So many great stories!

Make sure to grab your copy of this great book, you won't want to miss all of the great stories in it! 

I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
