Choose Higher Ground by
Henry B. Eyring
 
 
About:
 
When a young Henry B. Eyring would complain that things were hard, his mother would advise him, “If you are on the right path, it will always be uphill.” To choose the Lord’s way is to choose higher ground. "The Lord is anxious to lead us to the safety of higher ground," writes President Eyring, "away from the path of physical and spiritual danger. His upward path will require us to climb." In this remarkable book, he explains some of the ways in which we will accomplish that upward journey, including starting from a strong foundation, learning to help others, and finding strength in adversity."Let us do whatever is required to qualify for the Holy Ghost as our companion," President Eyring urges, "and then let us go forward fearlessly so that we will be given the powers to do whatever the Lord calls us to do." Filled with a revered leader's clear insights and sound counsel, Choose Higher Ground helps readers gain access to the power promised by the Lord to all His faithful disciples in the latter days.

About the Author:

Henry B. Eyring was called in 2008 as First Counselor in the First Presidency of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He has served as a General Authority since 1985, when he was called to serve in the Presiding Bishopric; he was sustained as a member of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles in 1995 and as Second Counselor in the First Presidency in 2007.

President Eyring holds a bacherlor’s degree from the University of Utah and master’s and PhD degrees from Harvard University. He worked as an associate professor at the Stanford Graduate School of Business and was president of Ricks College from 1971 to 1977. He also served as commissioner of Church Education. He and his wife, Kathleen Johnson Eyring, are the parents of six children and grandparents of twenty-eight.
 
In my opinion:
 
I have always loved Henry B. Eyring so I was thrilled to have the opportunity of reviewing one of his outstanding books. I've met Eyring a few times on my mission as well as at BYU. He is a pretty remarkable individual and I look up to him. In his book, Choose Higher Ground, Eyring talks about building a strong foundation. He also taught that using the word "someday" can be very dangerous. We shouldn't procrastinate and put off important and basic Gospel principles. Of course, I'm not perfect and I fall short of the whole "someday" word. However, Eyring helped me see the importance. His voice was definitely present in this book and I enjoyed the personal stories that not only uplifted me but helped me see the important principle(s) being taught. Eyring is extraordinary and I enjoyed reading his testimony over and over again. I definitely recommend this book to everyone. It makes a great gift for Mother's Day or Father's Day as well!
