"Do you long to find out who you are and your place in God's plan as a covenant disciple of Jesus Christ?" Brad Wilcox says in a recent LDS Living 5-Minute Fireside. "Let's talk about that."

In this episode, Brad Wilcox shares how each of us has a special mission to perform during our lifetime. Each one of us was born to change the world.

"The Lord is hastening His work to gather Israel," declared President Russell M. Nelson. "That gathering is the most important thing taking place on earth today." In this book you'll find answers to questions:

  • So I'm from Ephraim or Manasseh? So what?
  • What does it mean if I'm from another tribe?
  • What does it mean to gather Israel?

As members of the Church, we are often told to obey commandments because we are children of God or because we have been saved for the last days. But isn't everyone on earth right now a child of God who has been saved? What sets Latter-day Saints apart?

We have a birthright! We have been given much—temporally and spiritually. Now it is time for us to use what we have been given to make an eternal difference for people throughout the world—in other words, to gather Israel.

"Don't let the world change you," writes Brad Wilcox, "when you were born to change the world!"
