Why can't I seem to conquer weaknesses that plague me?" "How do I know if I'm receiving revelation?" "Will the Lord forgive me after what I've done?" "Why can't we seem to get ahead financially even though we faithfully pay our tithing?" "What if the Church's position on gay marriage bothers me?"
Those are just a handful of the countless questions Sheri Dew has heard people ask over the years. "May I answer these questions," she writes, "and any questions you may have, by posing a different question: Are you willing to engage in the wrestle? In an ongoing spiritual wrestle?"
In Worth the Wrestle, Sheri examines the process of asking good questionswhether those questions be doctrinal, procedural, historical, or intensely personaland learning how to get answers. She demonstrates how to live by faith while seeking greater light and knowledge. And she testifies of principles that are worth wrestling for and of understanding that can be gained in no other way.

I really enjoyed this book. Like, probably one of the very best I have ever read. Sheri Dew is incredible and has worked very hard in her life and it definitely shows. We might have to wrestle for a long time. We might have to work for the things we expect God to give us right now. And why wouldn’t we work? Why wouldn’t we push ourselves to our very best, be obedient and obey God’s timing? It’s so much easier said than done but I have experienced working hard and waiting on the Lord, and because of that, I have never been so happy.
