Product Description

Most of the work of the Lord is accomplished through relationships. Leaders exercise righteous influence and self-control by either stepping in to assist their brother and sisters or backing off out of respect for their God-given agency. This book discusses in detail the principles of righteousness and how a leader conforms his or her life to them in order to receive the powers of heaven. It shows how the powers of heaven are often manifested through the Holy Ghost — inspiration comes that directs leaders to do the right thing for the righteous reason. Learn how to lead more effectively in the Church and at home!

I bought this book and was unable to get very far and it ended up on the bookshelf for quite some time. I finally decided I was going to try again and I was so amazed at what I learned. It is amazing how many people take their church calling or other position in life and try to rule over others unrighteously. This is an excellent book for anyone that works with other people, a reminder that we are all equals. It is filled with quotes from prophets and scriptures to back up everything he talks about. An excellent book to have on the shelf.
