Product Description

When a young Henry B. Eyring would complain that things were hard, his mother would advise him, “If you are on the right path, it will always be uphill.” To choose the Lord’s way is to choose higher ground.

"The Lord is anxious to lead us to the safety of higher ground," writes President Eyring, "away from the path of physical and spiritual danger. His upward path will require us to climb." In this remarkable book, he explains some of the ways in which we will accomplish that upward journey, including starting from a strong foundation, learning to help others, and finding strength in adversity.

"Let us do whatever is required to qualify for the Holy Ghost as our companion," President Eyring urges, "and then let us go forward fearlessly so that we will be given the powers to do whatever the Lord calls us to do." Filled with a revered leader's clear insights and sound counsel, Choose Higher Ground helps readers gain access to the power promised by the Lord to all His faithful disciples in the latter days.

I appreciated the reminder that "If you are on the right path, it will always be uphill." Accepting that a great life was not intended to be easy calms my soul to endure it well. The hard things in life create a space to appreciate and savor the joys of life. I recommend this book for anyone who needs to feel understood. Elder Eyring shows how the higher ground of making and keeping covenants is a choice worth making. Worth whatever it takes!
