I WILL LEAD YOU ALONG the Life of Henry B Eyring--Book Review

I WILL LEAD YOU ALONG THE LIFE OF HENRY B EYRING by Robert I. Eaton and Henry J. Eyring. I have talked about this for several weeks now. Biographies are not my thing, but I love President Eyring and thought it would be fun to read about him. I am amazed by his background, his parents, everything that has shaped him into the man he is today. This is such an incredible book. I highly recommend this to everyone not only to learn about Presiden Eyring, but to learn your own life lessons.

Henry Bennion Eyring was born on May 31, 1933, in Princeton, New Jersey, bearing the first name of his father, who was fast building a reputation as a brilliant scientist, and the family name of his mother, who didn't care for the name "Henry" and insisted that he be called Hal.
In 1970, Hal received an impression to make a daily record of his activities. Years of journals form the backbone of this personal biography, a candid look at his walk through life with his beloved companion, Kathy. "The journal shows how a good-but-imperfect man works each day to win divine approval," write the authors, and this window into his past provides unforgettable insights about the man the Lord has shaped him to become.
Readers will love these richly designed pages, filled with photographs, sketches from the pen of President Eyring himself, and scores of entries straight from his journals woven into an engaging depiction of his life's journey.
President Henry B. Eyring's professional, academic, and personal experiences have all combined to make him uniquely qualified for his responsibilities as a member of the First Presidency of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. His life story vividly demonstrates the power of the Lord and the example set by one who strives to follow His commands.
