I first heard the name Brad Harris about a year ago when someone gave a spiritual thought from a book called Trails to Testimony – Bringing Young Men to Christ Through Scouting. Something about what was shared from this book motivated me to read it. Upon doing so, twice, the message was so clear that it shed a whole new light on scouting for me in an LDS troop. Up to that point in time, I thought scouting was simply a program for teaching boys to camp, hike and enjoy the outdoors. After discovering Brad’s perspective, followed by my experience of Wood Badge shortly thereafter, I began to see scouting as a tool to do much, much more!
This really is a must read for every leader from 11 year olds to Venture scouts!
