Why You Can’t Be Anything Your Want To Be

BY Arthur F. Miller

Rather than explain and illustrate the text of this book, I believe you would more appreciate what you are entitled to when you realize your position as favored by God. Reading about the laws which govern your nature and behavior, and page after page of benefits you enjoy when living how you have been designed should chase away any doubts or questions about whether it’s a good deal.
