Sophie is a monster expert. Thanks to her Big Book of Monsters and her vivid imagination, Sophie can identify the monsters in her school and neighborhood. Clearly, the bullies are trolls and goblins. Her nice neighbor must be a good witch, and Sophie's new best friend is obviously a fairy. But what about Sophie? She's convinced she is definitely a monster because of the "monster mark" on her face. At least that's what she calls it. The doctors call it a blood tumor. Sophie tries to hide it but it covers almost half her face. And if she's a monster on the outside, then she must be a monster on the inside, too.

We all want to be part of a forever family, right? But why do we seem to be on our worst behavior when we're with our family? Why do we seem to get along with everyone besides our family? What can we do to really want to spend eternity with our family? Hank can help! In this entertaining and enlightening talk by everyone's favorite youth speaker, Hank Smith tackles the problem of family unity and talks about what we can do to get that love at home we all sing about but sometimes miss in all the chaos of arguing, sibling rivalries, and good old-fashioned grumpiness. Using stories, examples from the scriptures, and plenty of his trademark humor, Hank gives practical solutions to an age-old problem. (Too bad Hank wasn't around when Nephi and his brothers weren't getting along!) Isn't it time we start fighting for instead of with our family?!

The time has come to break free and reclaim his power.
In this book, best-selling author John Bytheway suggests that Moroni's last words were both intensely personal and universally applicable. In the closing chapters of the Book of Mormon we discover a wonderful formula for surviving today's turbulent times.

John suggests that whatever latter-day challenges we face, we can successfully navigate them by "likening Moroni."
