Choose your own adventure

I want to know if anyone remembers these books. You are reading a story and you get to a fork in the road and you make a choice and then you flip to a different page and keep reading and finish out the story based on decisions that you make while reading.
It was really cool. 
Sunday during our stake conference we were told (by Sister Cook) that this church is a "multipurpose, full service choose your adventure church."
I love that imagery. 
It is for everyone (multipurpose), it is for everything (full service), and the ability to take advantage of it is ours (choose your own adventure).
However, much unlike the books which I would end reading the entire book to get the story that I wanted we begin with the end in mind. 
We know what ending we want our book to have and we know how to make sure that happens. 
If we follow the Lord Jesus Christ then we will have our happily ever after, our sail off into the sunset, our a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, or whatever other brand of adventure we yearn for.
