"Simple Truths" by Mitt and Ann Romney is a book that was written to their posterity. They suggest certain things that you can do to have a good life.. Most things the Mitt and Ann Romney talk about are things the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints teach members about at an early age. This book would be a good book for someone that has graduated from school or anyone who wants to read something short and inspirational.
What a combination! This book truly explains where two worlds, the church and world, collide into one. I was touched as The Romney's share their personal experiences of how they grew to know the truth and live it in such a changing world. Definitely a good book to bring you back to the basics of life. Staying focused on Christ through all of lives challenges.
this was a fun, fast read! it was cool to learn a little bit about the Romney’s life together, and read about the advice they have to give. some of the advice was pretty specific to the situation that mitt romney has been given since birth. i mean this in the sense that his parents were good with money, and invested money for mitt since he was a child. he was always given a good example for how money should be handled. not everyone is so fortunate to have been given this example, and in the book it sounds like that example is a key part of why he is so successful today. despite this specific advice, i really did enjoy this book, and i do think that it has valuable advice for everyone to pick and choose from. this would be a good graduation gift!!
Simple truths brings one back to core values. It is written like a letter from a parent, and would be appropriate for any stage in life. I enjoyed the perspective shared on how the gospel has blessed the Romneys life, and how their faith has blessed them.
I liked the parts where he described how to find what your core values are that you are happiest when your your actions are living closest to those values and less happy as you move away from them. All can benefit from the information given in this book and through the examples given, find for yourself what builds character and what for you will constitute success. This is truly a book that everyone can find a part that will will inspire them to be a better self.
An amazing outlook on life, perfect as a graduation gift for a parent to give to their special graduate who will be entering the real world! This book definitely is your lifetime book that you'll want to take a chapter at a time during specific stages in your life.
An incredible read for youth, parents and grandparents alike. Life is full a decisions for which we are accountable and result in natural consequences. 'Simple Truths for an Abundant Life' provides youth and young adults with life skills and truths as a moral and ethical compass for determining personal pathways in their lives. I have determined to place a copy of this book in the hands of my children and grandchildren! It is an invaluable mentoring guide and resource tool for life coaching and counseling.
If wealthy heretics were held to the same standards for retaining membership as you and I...,oh my.
