The book, “Standing for Something” is one of the best books that I have read. I love to learn from President Hinckley and really enjoyed reading this book. I felt that the way that each virtue is portrayed is done is a very loving way and also shared with some personal experiences of the prophet. This book has helped me recognize ways that I need to improve individually. It also teaches how to improve a society as a whole. This book is also very quotable and has very strong statements that give you a lot to think about. One of my favorite quotes includes this. “The best antidote I know for worry is work. The best cure for weariness is the challenge of helping someone who is even more tired. One of the great ironies of life is this: He or she who serves almost always benefits more than he or she who is served.” Book that is uplifting and worth your time!
I learn something new ever time I pick up this book.
Pres. Hinckley wrote this for all to know that we all must stand for something or fall for anything.
I've read this book 3+ times and still find new insights and ideas to make my life better. I've also given this book to many friends (LDS and not) who have enjoyed it and used it in speeches given in my community. It is truly an inspired book and I wish more people would read it.
We seek after these things. This book reminds us to instill virtue into our every action. Thankyou for such a beautiful book. It will insprie the very least of us.
An insightful work from our beloved prophet.
This book touches on many things that are so pertinent in these times - so many values and morals that seem to be lost in common society.
With characteristic straight-forwardness, optimism, and humor, President Hinckley delivers a masterful lesson on the actions and attitudes that will bless our nation. He details each of his ten values with intriguing life experiences and powerful, heart-reaching messages. It serves as a superb standard for renewing perspective and seeking first the kingdom of God.
