Standing for Something: 10 Neglected Virtues That Will Heal Our Hearts and Homes by Gordon B. Hinckley
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This book describes in a clear and fundamental way how the future of our country and our society is in the homes of families. The 10 virtues discussed are so simple and widely known, but are equally dismissed or ignored. Reading this was like hearing President Hinckley over the pulpit again, and I felt a huge surge of hope and confidence as I flipped through the pages. I loved this book and plan on returning to it again and again, especially the last few chapters on the value of the home and the loneliness of leadership. I highly recommend this book for everyone, especially those who are anxiously striving to repair and save the diminishing value structure of modern society. For educators, politicians, business leaders, parents, and anyone who is concerned about the well being of our country, this book is clearly essential reading.
