Standing for Something 10 Neglected Virtues That Will Heal Our Hearts and Homes Author:Gordon B. Hinckley In this national bestseller, the president of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Gordon B. Hinckley, has created a classic look at the values that can change our world -- and how to stand up for them. Drawing on anecdotes from his much-admired life of faith and service, as well as examples from American culture today, he examines t... more »en virtues that have always illuminated the path to a better world: love, honesty, morality, civility, learning, forgiveness and mercy, thrift and industry, gratitude, optimism, and faith. He then shows how the two guardians of virtue -- marriage and the family -- can keep us on that path, even in difficult times.
Standing for Something is an inspiring blueprint for what we all can do -- as individuals, as a nation, and as a world community -- to rediscover the values and virtues that have historically made us strong and that will lead us to a brighter future.« less
Amazing! This is one that I will read again. (Although I tend to lend it out alot.) If we could get this book to become a life manual, I wouldn't worry as much about my children and the world they will be growing up in. Strong homes, strong families, and strong values.
