Way To Be!

This is a gem of a book that can be read in a weekend. Written by Gordon B. Hinckley, it offers up "nine suggestions gleaned from more than nine decades of living, that will help you achieve happiness and success." And who doesn't want more happiness and success in their lives? Here are his nine ways to be:

Be Grateful
Be Smart
Be Involved
Be Clean
Be True
Be Positive
Be Humble
Be Still
Be Prayerful

"It is not enough just to be good. You must be good for something. You must contribute good to the world. The world must be a better place for your presence....The better way to Be is the way of these nine Be's."
--Gordon B. Hinckley

I couldn't agree more.
Here's to BE-ing!


  1. Do we need to be reminded to be clean?? Well, maybe some days...but hopefully we know we should shower from time to time. :)

    But really, it sounds like it has some great points. I'm glad you enjoyed it!

  2. This is a great book. Probably time for me to read it again.

  3. Lots of wisdom in this little book! It is good for teens and adults alike. Thanks for sharing!
