Description

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 ten 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. From the Trade Paperback edition.
