by John Bytheway

Golden questions are the most important in life, involving gospel truths and our place in the plan of salvation. "The problem," Brother Bytheway states, "is when we expect Google-speed answers to Golden Questions."

As they do, they'll learn to find their own answers to difficult questions—and the first step in this vital process is to "Ask of God."

A secret document listing the names of the entire network of British spies—including his own—has been stolen.

Falling to Heaven: The Surprising Path to Happiness

by James L. Ferrell
$14.99—listen free on Bookshelf Plus!

LDS Audio Books for a More Inspiring Commute

As incredible as it may sound, much of the sadness and frustration we feel in mortality is actually created by our well-meaning efforts to find happiness. Relief from this predicament can be found through a divine gospel paradox that rescues us from failed roads and puts us on the surprising path to happiness.

Through engaging stories and fresh, invigorating gospel insights, James Ferrell has written a book that challenges our unquestioned and perhaps mistaken assumptions about many of life's fundamental concerns. For example, what if happiness depends less on forgiving ourselves than on giving up that quest? What if repentance is even sweeter than forgiveness? What if neither happiness nor heaven can be reached by climbing?

Falling to Heaven is an account of a gospel that's specifically designed to change our minds and transform our hearts. It is an account of the truths of Christ that really do set us free.
