    more from this reviewer

    I was supposed to do this review last month and completely forgo

    I was supposed to do this review last month and completely forgot about it because of some craziness going on in our lives. Anyway, better late than never. 

    I have been a fan of John Bytheway since the mid 1990s when he came out with What I Wish I’d Known in High School. I loved his humor and the way he made the truth come out & made me think through the humor. Therefore, I was thrilled when I found out about this new book too. 

    Lifestyles continues on the Bytheway tradition of adding humor to sensitive topics and helped me to analyze my life in a less stressful way. I love how there are sections of the book called “Applying the Dream to Our Reality” because these parts really help to bring the scriptures and Lehi’s Dream to the modern world. I have never before read a book that delves into Lehi’s Dream and helped me apply it to my own life like this one does. I read the book fairly quickly because of doing the review. However, now I plan on going back through it slower, chapter by chapter, and actually applying the lessons learned in my daily life. This book does more than just help us understand Lehi’s Dream – it helps us live in such a way that we can return to the Tree of Life. The tag line at the bottom of the cover says “Finding Your Path in Lehi’s Dream” and this book lives up to that title. By applying the things learned here, we can stay on the path and hold to the Iron Rod more firmly because we can better understand the intricate points of the dream and the severity of the Great and Spacious Building. I also love how Brother Bytheway brings in teachings from General Authorities and how it’s not just a scriptural reference book. His personal experiences from his life and how he shares experiences he’s had with General Authorities too help to bring reality to his insights. He’s not just some man sitting in an office somewhere, but he has a life just like the rest of us (although he gets to interact with the General Authorities more one on one) and sharing those experiences makes everything more real. His humor and down-to-earth writing helps me find hope and courage to apply the things learned in the book to my personal life. 

    I would highly recommend the book to anyone who already enjoys John Bytheway and/or anyone looking to more fully understand Lehi’s Dream in a different way without it just being a scriptural analyzation. After I finish re-reading the book for myself, I’ll be giving it to our 13-year-old daughter so that she can also more fully understand Lehi’s Dream and how it applies to our lives today. I believe this would also be a great resource for LDS families to use in addition to scripture study because it is written in such a way that even younger children can understand it and apply the teachings to their lives. Once again, Well Done, Brother Bytheway!!

    Lehi's dream in the Book of Mormon is a well-known parable for L

    Lehi's dream in the Book of Mormon is a well-known parable for LDS members. This book works to further our understanding of this passage. By dissecting the scripture, John Bytheway is able to really provide interesting insights and thoughts into each little part. This book will provide fascinating information about Lehi's dream along with helpful and meaningful ways to apply it to your life.

    This is a passage of scripture I think every LDS member is very familiar with. I know I've heard it tons of times. What I really likes about this book was it's ability to get past what I already know and add some new things in. It's really a great way to study this passage. There are quotes from Church leaders, connections to other scripture, and loads of interesting things to learn. Each chapter also has way to apply these things in your own life. Of course, it's all done in an entertaining and sometimes humorous manner that John Bytheway is known for. This book is a quick read just reading through, but I think you could also spend some time with your scriptures and dissect things even further on your own. It's also something that I think could entertain youth while helping them get a really good grasp on the scripture itself. Definitely check this book out to get a good perspective on Lehi's dream.

    Book provided for review.

    The Bible is so full of different people and times. I love when

    The Bible is so full of different people and times. I love when I get the opportunity to learn about a specific time or person. I really enjoyed learning about Lehi, and the part that talks about facing scoffers is definitely worth the read. These 32 versus definitely made more sense to me after this read. I also recommend the book "Life Rocks" by the same author. A good foundation helps ensure a good future. I am giving this book a 5/5. I was given a copy to review, however all opinions are my own.

    We are so blessed to have the scriptures! But do we read them? D

    We are so blessed to have the scriptures!
    But do we read them?
    Do we heed them?
    Do we sometimes struggle to understand them?
    I know I struggle with understanding... that is why I am so grateful that authors like John Bytheway share their knowledge of the scriptures with us.
    I LOVE how he starts the book...
    "It's only thirty-two verses, or 982 words in length, but it's a life changer--and unforgettable and highly applicable metaphor.  We call it Lehi's dream."
    He then goes on to explain about each part of the vision:
    the tree of life
    the rod of iron
    the mists of darkness
    the ominous great and spacious building 
    He tells what each means in his Thoughts, Insights, and Observation section he has in each chapter.
    And then my FAVORITE part...
    Each chapter has an APPLYING THE DREAM TO OUR REALITY.
    I LOVED LOVED LOVED this book and now have so much greater understanding...and I will try to seek more "Tree-of Life" moments!
