For today's graduates, the possibilities and opportunities are exhilarating and endless. But while there is adventure ahead, the next steps are not set out in a predetermined course — perhaps for the first time in a graduate's life. In this delightful gift book, inspired by a 2014 commencement speech she gave, the former first lady of Massachusetts and wife of 2012 presidential candidate Mitt Romney offers eight practical (and surprising) tips for the road ahead — pieces of advice she wishes someone had given her at her own graduation.
With stories and examples gathered from decades of life experience, Ann Romney shares candid, inspirational lessons learned from both adversity and success. (Her husband, Mitt, adds a little perspective of his own in the book's Foreword.) For those just beginning their journey, this hopeful, encouraging book provides bite-sized tips — personal and professional — for any walk of life, whatever you choose to be.
Super great advice for everyone and for every life!
Compacted and full of wisdom.
Because her points are well written and informative. I've been out of high school for 4 years now. I cannot believe it, but her principles or advice, even guidelines are for every one. I believe that and I know it. I recommend this book to my friend and soon to be sister missionary of the Lord, Octavea. Life is an incredible journey, and a fun one. Take Ann Romney's lessons and tips with you for a lifetime.
My daughter graduated from SUU in 2014 where Ann gave these encouraging words as the guest commencement speaker. It was a wonderful, amazing, uplifting, guiding talk not just for the graduates, but for all in attendence. I and my entire family left with a renewal of determination of roads ahead. Hearing her talk in person and so enjoying it, I am excited to read the book and hear those encouraging words again. Will be a gift for my daughter that graduated college, my daughter graduating high school this year and tucking a few away for others. So grateful to be able to read it over and over again.
This book completely filled up my spiritual meter. I totally needed this book to reassure me of my path in life. I highly recommend this book for everyone...especially women. This would make a great graduation and mother's day gift.
This is the #1 gift for graduates and any who are making a transition in life. I have always wanted to hear more about Ann Romney's personal thoughts and experience, and this is the book for that! I am not in the category for which this book was written but I am very glad that I read it!
While Ann is speaking to graduates...this book has life skills that we can ALL benefit from.
Advice such as as:
* Make your relationships a priority
* Do someone a favor
* Do your present job well
* Live for a purpose greater than yourself.
* AND MORE
Ann sweetly shares stories and examples from her own personal life in which she learned these truths.
A small book filled with a large, powerful message!
This is a MUST-READ for EVERYONE!
Grab a copy for a graduate, spouse, friend, parent, etc.
