    Definitely recommend! Even if you're not LDS!

    So the values that he shares are pretty much common sense... Be honest, kind to others, etc... But he really lays them out in a no nonsense kind of way. It's not a do these things once in awhile when you feel like it kind of a thing... but a call to really work every day on being a better person. I love the emphasis put on the marriage and the family! Two things that should take complete priority over everything else! It was also interesting to read through President Hinckley's stories... how he related to each of the values through something he's seen or encountered throughout his years. He really has been able to travel the world and seen so many interesting things! Highly recommend this book! Even if you're not LDS!

    more from this reviewer

    A must read for all

    A great well written book that just makes plain sense! Fixing societies issues really does start in the home with a good father and mother to give their children the love and support they need to grow into mature and honorable people our country needs more of.

    'Things of the Lord can only be understood by the spirit of the Lord

    As I was reading this book I was constantly reminded of one of the president's remarks to a question asked to him while being interviewed by mr. wallace on the 60 minutes. This book perhaps reveals an in depth answer and the statement made by our president, 'THINGS OF GOD CAN ONLY UNDERSTOOD BY THE SPIRIT OF GOD AND WE MUST CULTIVATE THAT SPIRIT TO UNDERSTAND WHATS BEING SAID'. I don't know if I have written it verbatim but I am almost certain that Mr. wallac's question was answered in that statement. I further believe that in order to fully understand and apply whats being revealed in this book a humble prayer and a complete submission to the Lord is of the utmost importance. I humbly pray that all individuals and families make this book a complete guide to their lives. amen.

    Great Revival of Forgotten Virtues

    This motivational book will sink deep into your soul. As President Hinckley re-teaches the forgotten virtues, a spark of hope will come to mind. Standing for something will mean more, and become a top priority.
