I review these rules for living on a regular basis This has been a great book for my older boys as well A good teaching tool from a loving source.
Our second reading as a family We learn so much in the simple, sweet, and powerful lessons herein I love Gordon B Hinckley and each of his messages This book is short, but not short on wisdom.
AMAZING I LOVED this book Every day now I find myself going over the 9 Be s and saying to myself whether or not I m truly applying them to myself I have so many friends who have than one copy and don t even bother to open it It has helped he put my life into such a place of order it s miraculous Many questions I ve had recently having to do with being a teenager I guess were answered simply and clearly President Hinckley is very concise and to the point and I love it I hate it when people beat [...]
Written by the wisest of men Don t read it once and put it away Keep it out, read from it regularly, then perhaps these things will be ingrained in our lives If only everyone could read it and BE we d all live happily ever after.
Very good outline on things we should work on Even though it was published over 10 years ago, it still has lessons applicable to today.
I loved President Hinckley He was an amazing man, and I will always remember when he first spoke about the Be Attitudes I was a teen when he gave this talk, and I love how simple and straight forward his 9 Bs are I think everyone, not just members of the LDS church, could benefit from living by these Bs I loved reading the personal stories and lessons from President Hinckley s life He had some amazing parents This book is short and sweet, but there is a lot to absorb.
kindly advice from a man I ve always highly respected I wish I d read it sooner.
A great quick read Inspirational and uplifting It s targeted to youth young adults, but the advice in it is certainly applicable for all ages I can t remember if I d read this before when I was younger Some of the stories shared were familiar as I ve read some of President Hinckley s other works.
Another fantastic work by Gordon B Hinckley I love this book so much It is very alike with Standing for Something, great LDS book
A short little book filled with wise words Targeted for youth, but applies to all ages I love Gordon B Hinckley s books and talks, such an upbeat man.
Gordon B Hinckley s 9 rules are powerful, simple, and, if lived authentically, will bring great happiness to anyone s life Even though I m not religious, the ninth rule, Be prayerful, really helped to remind me the power of future orientation and thinking with the end in mind Stephen Covey s 3rd Habit of Highly Effective People The power of prayer, I believe, is not that your wishes will suddenly be granted, it is that you are clarifying exactly what you want in your life and are able to constan [...]
My first semester as BYU undergrad, I had the privilege of hearing President Gordon B Hinckley offer the timeless 6 B s sermon Reprinted here lds ensign 2001 01 a The 6 B s include Be GratefulBe SmartBe CleanBe TrueBe HumbleBe PrayerfulA year later he added 3 additional B s, all now collected in his book, Way To Be Be PositiveBe InvolvedBe StillWhile I recognized President Hinckley s words to be not your run of the mill sermon at the time they were given live, I have appreciated them even now t [...]
Read in 2015 reread in 2017 Simple but wise advice for how to live your life I love President Gordon B Hinckley and his counsel throughout his years of leadership helped guide my life and choices I made I will be forever grateful to him for that.
I loved his wisdom and stories gathered over 9 decades of living Even though it was popular and a must read over a decade ago, this was actually my first time reading it I m hoping to get my teens to read it now PS Can I just say, I love President Hinckley
I love this book I especially love President Hinckley I remember when he gave this talk I was in college at the time, and his words were very influential to many of the big decisions I made I was glad to have a chance to reread this and be reminded of those teachings.
My husband, our teenage son, and I read this one aloud together a chapter at a time over the past several months Hinckley s nine be s are good reminders for all of us, regardless of our age Be GratefulBe SmartBe CleanBe TrueBe HumbleBe PrayerfulBe PositiveBe InvolvedBe Still
President Hinckley is an amazing man with great advice I hope to better apply his 9 B s to my life.
An easy enjoyable read
I was looking in my family s book shelf, and we have some old books on there that haven t been read for a while, so I found this small book by one of our old prophets for the Latter Day Saints, and thought maybe I should read it since the tittle caught my interest, Way to Be 9 Rules For Living the Good Life The book wasn t that long, I just finished last night on the 4th of October, 2017 And I d like to recommend this book to those that aren t, and are members of the Latter Day Saints, because I [...]
It is wonderful to read words of wisdom from one who has spent a lifetime learning the ways to success and happiness It makes me sad to think of the many people who will discount his words because he is old or because he is a prophet of God or because they think he is old fashioned If only they would hearken to his wise advice, how much better their lives would be, and how much better off the world would be It is not too late for me to listen and learn either.
I loved this book I hope all my kids read it as teenagers I love Gordon B Hinckley s optimistic outlook on life and people, while still managing to be realistic I love how much faith he has in future generations and in God, and I love how easily he shares that with the reader I finished this book feeling uplifted, inspired, and wanting to be a better person.
Quick and uplifting read I read it start to finish today I also read this years ago, but it s all still so fitting in today s world He speaks very bluntly I now see it as a good teaching tool as a parent and youth leader Great words of advice and comfort to read and re read.
Definitely a must read for teenagers
Very positive and uplifting
Really good stuff to hear Now to just to integrate it into my life
This book never fails to pick me up and make me want to be a little better You are good But it is not enough just to be good You must be good for something Way to Be pg 8
Another stellar book by Gordon Hinckley
I absolutely am in LOVE with this book Way to Be is written by Gordon B Hinckley, the last prophet the Church of Latter Day Saints had Gordon B Hinckley wrote these 9 Rules For Living the Good Life to help inspire others to change the way they live to be happier and a productive life Gordon B Hinckley wrote this book to help teenagers, or basically all ages, to become He made up something called the 9 Be s Be Grateful, Be Smart, Be Involved, Be Clean, Be True, Be Positive, Be Humble, Be Still, [...]
There is not much I can say about Way to Be as it is the kind of book that leaves me without words I find it both amusing and humbling to have read so many descriptions and reviews of evil things of the world and found within them that the reviewers were left speechless or breathless I have always been able to speak about the evil things I have experienced within media of all kinds I pray that I not be seen as a hypocrite for saying this, but as a human race, as the children of the most high God [...]
