Learn the very BEST tips. In LOTS less time!
Most of the home buyer books on the market are quite good.
But most are also quite long. Some as many as 400 pages!
We’ve found that many people don’t have TIME (or patience) for that.
So we collected our very best home buying tips and added the most helpful resources we knew.
Then we condensed and simplified them into a short but powerfully sweet resource.
Viola! The Super Simple Home Buyer’s HANDBOOK!

People LOVE stories!
Stories can grab the interest of listeners of all ages. They can be an excellent teaching tool for illustrating principles and doctrines of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. And they are effective in both home and church settings.
During my 37 years of teaching seminary and institute I collected hundreds of stories.
Because I’m often asked for copies of my stories I decided to create an e-book to make them easy to read and easy to share.
This is a collection of links to 200 outstanding stories found in the Ensign and New Era magazines.
Each story title in this e-book is a web link. Touch the title and “presto”, you’ll be taken directly to the Church’s website where you can read or print the story.
These stories can be downloaded and read on your smartphone, tablet, or computer using the free Kindle app here:
I have categorized these stories into over 70 topics so you can quickly find a story that highlights a principle you are studying or teaching.
I hope you will enjoy reading and sharing these stories as much as I have!
“I loved this book from page one. I started reading and couldn’t put the book down.” – Dianne Carter
Tim Carver has filled this book with powerful, uplifting stories of everyday Latter-day Saints (LDS) who encountered a test of faith and put their trust in Jesus Christ.
And each person found an increase of faith as they took the leap and watched the Lord fulfill His promises.
Written especially for members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormon) this book will also be a strength to anyone seeking to increase his/her faith in Jesus Christ.
Faith in Jesus Christ is demonstrated not merely by what we believe. It is made manifest by what we do. Especially when it's hard.
When we hold to the teachings of Jesus – even when the sea is black and the waves are crashing upon us – that's faith!
“I LOVED this book. Easy read. Just one more chapter, I'd say each time I read.” – Kate
“What a great book! I came away feeling more motivated and inspired to become a better person.” – Reid
“Let's just say, I never wanted it to end! I laughed, I cried (a lot), and had prayers answered that I wasn’t expecting.” – Alissa
“My grandkids love this book!” “Words and illustrations are adorable.”
Jack E. Wurst is the worst! He has a “Me Monster” living deep inside him!
Jack is mean and selfish, never thinking of anyone but himself. Worse than that, he is a bully. Whether at home or at school, Jack enjoys being unkind to others.
Everyone has given up on Jack. Except his parents. Things change quickly when Jack’s mother and father find a special way for Jack to see the terrible monster inside him.
A fun story with an uplifting message for all ages of how to overcome personal selfishness and discover the joy of putting others first.
“Very sweet book. LOVED IT!” Shelley C.
Good News for First-time Home Buyers in Utah!
There are national, state, county and city programs that offer qualified first-time home buyers down payment and closing cost assistance!
The Sad News
The sad news is that most people aren’t aware of the good news! Some have heard about financial housing assistance but few know where to go to find them.
Tim and Clint Carver have spent more than a year researching the grants and financial housing assistance available in various communities and cities throughout the state of Utah. And they assembled all of the details and their contact information into one book:
“The 2020 Guide for Utah Housing Grants and Assistance”
Here's a sample of what's in the book:
Mortgage programs that offer lower interest rates.
Down payment assistance for members of the military.
Financial housing assistance for police, fire-fighters, and teachers.
$5,000 to $10,000 grants for down payment and/or closing costs.
$5,000 deferred-payment loans for down payment or closing costs.
Financial assistance and grants for those who have lost their homes through divorce or disaster.
Programs where families help build each other's homes under the guidance of a professional contractor.
