When you have something good you also have a choice of having something better and best. A fork is better than a knife to eat chicken soup but a spoon would be the best. Lets talk cake for a better example.
Chocolate cake is the pinnacle of all food. Everyone has once in their life used the phrase 'piece of cake' at least once in their life. A single layer cake of pure deliciousness. It is a good choice. On a score of 1 to 10, it scores about a 3 on the chocolate scale. Then a better choice would be the double layer cake. The siding on the cake is calling your name to come eat it. It just makes you feel good just looking at it. Then you have the BEST choice, triple layer mountain of glory chocolate cake. This thing ain’t just saying eat me, the cake is screaming at you. You seem to be magically drawn into and towards the cake.
    In this example you have a choice to make, choice one, two, or three. Choice is the ability to make a decision for yourself. We all choose what we want to do. Whether to sleep in all day or to wake up and get going to work. In Book of Mormon there is a person named Lehi and right before he dies he gives council to his children. He says, "Wherefore, men are free according to the flesh; and all things are given them which are expedient unto man. And they are free to choose liberty and eternal life, through the great Mediator of all men, or to choose captivity and death, according to the captivity and power of the devil; for he seeketh that all men might be miserable like unto himself." 2 Nephi 2:27-29
     God has given us the ability to choose which path we will go down. He has given us manuals to help us return back to his presence. We have the Holy Bible both Old and New Testaments. We also have the Book of Mormon which is another testament of Jesus Christ. He has given us the all that we need. We just need to use them. I know that the Bible and Book of Mormon are the words of God and that when they are used “one in thine hand” we can see so much more. I know that if we have any questions about whether or not the Book of Mormon is true. All we have to do is read the book with an open heart, wanting to know the truth then “ask God, the Eternal Father, in the name of Christ, if these things are not true; and if ye shall ask with a sincere heart, with real intent, having faith in Christ, he will manifest the truth of it unto you, by the power of the Holy Ghost.” (Moroni 10:4)
