I love this CD! In high school, there truly are people who treat some people better than others, and it seriously brings down the school unity. If we can use the Laura Larsen principle, this pecking order will slowly, hopefully, wear down and disappear. However, we all need to be willing to do that. Thank you for this talk! It has seriously made me a better person because I have started talking to people that I normally haven't talked to!
I loved this talk! To be honest, there were moments, where I could tell Hank was using body language to convey his point, and the live audience was laughing, and I was lost, but this didn't cost it a star for me, because the message came through loud and clear. We live in a world of pecking orders, Hank invites us to take the "Laura Larsen" challenge, to not be chickens, to love everyone, and let our countenance glow with the true love of Christ which. This talk is great for teens, but its message is not irrelevant to adults either.
I purchased Hank Smith's, Be Who You Are around Christmas time, the next time I was at Deseret Book I purchased the remainder of his CD's. Our family really enjoys the talks. Additionally, I am the Young Men's President in our ward; we listen to these CD's anytime we are traveling. The YM enjoy the CD's as much as the leaders.
I wish i had heard this talk when i was in Junior High, it's amazing and you will want to be a better person. Sign up for the Laura Larsen challenge!
This is an awesome talk by Hank Smith. His personal stories that he shares in this talk are funny and true. There is a great message in this talk. I would recommend this to all ages. I think everyone would enjoy this talk on CD.
Brother Smith is the best seminary teacher I've had in all my years of seminary. I'll never forget anything he's EVER done for me and every student who steps foot in that seminary building. This CD is truly inspiring and I absolutely love it! I've never met a better person (of course, other than the prophet) to say what he says, the way he says it. I highly recommend this CD.
Hank, what a great CD. Who would have thought when we were all in seminary you would be making me laugh and cry at the same time. It leaves a message that teens and adults need.
My 13 year old son listens to this over and over on his ipod. He loves it. I can hear him laughing out loud. He has shared the spiritual insights and the message with me. Would highly recommend!
I went to the best of efy thing where he gave this talk, and my time there turned into both the most hilarious and spiritual time of my life! it seemes like this talk was writen just for me! He is officially my favorite person ever now. I love him so much.
