Whether making life-changing choices or considering seemingly small day-to-day decisions, to choose oftentimes means to take a step into the unknown.
In The Decision That Changed My Life, author Ganel-Lyn Condie explores some of the life-altering choices made by sixteen notable and everyday Latter-day Saints and the chain of events that followed those decisions that affected other people's lives. From the broad impact of Janice Kapp Perry's course-changing decision to pursue music to the significance of Chris Carter's converting to the gospel as a young boy, each story demonstrates the potential ripple effects of our decisions. While following the promptings of the Spirit without a full understanding of the outcome requires great faith, sometimes making that one decision has the power to change our lives—and the world.
Among others, these stories include:
T.C. Christensen—his decision concerning The Cokeville Miracle
Susan Easton Black—her decision to marry George Durrant
Ed and Patricia Pinegar—their decision to start planning, prioritizing, and changing their lives
Brad Wilcox—his reflection on his children's changes in the mission field
Ty Mansfield—his decision concerning same-sex attraction
