These books are a series, which are published to be used in Sunday School in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. It's pretty cool that we kind of sum up the words of these prophets into these manuals. Pres. Grant was prophet between WWI and WWII. He knew that a lot of people don't accept Christ as a literal God and Son of God, but he said that "others with clearer insight, begotten by experience, behold Him as the originator of a system that promotes industry, honesty, truth, purity ...more

If there was one word to describe President Grant, it would be "persistence". He effort to become a local pitching sensation, a celebrated 'scribbler', a respectable singer, and an honored businessman all attest to his strength of character and not to some in-born talent. Reading of his life and teachings have strengthened my resolve to work harder and longer towards my worthy goals.

This served as a good manual to study for priesthood. Heber J. Grant was the president of the Church when my Mom was growing up. He died in 1945. He was president during the Great Depression.
I read every lesson in an attempt to gain as much knowledge from this program as possible.

I really read the one on Gordon B. Hinckley but could not figure out how to add it to Goodreads. There is no one like President Hinckley! Chapters on Learning, Atonement, and Reaching out to others were my favorites.

Kudos to the editors of this book because the chapters flow so well with the talks from which the quotes are derived. I enjoyed the personal stories that President Grant related.

I actually need to read the last few chapters. I was called into YW at that time and didn't have the opportunity to participate in those lessons. And I think everyone could benefit from Chapter 18.

“We sing and have done so constantly, "We thank Thee, O God, for a Prophet to guide us in these latter days." [Hymns, no. 19.]

There are a great many who . . . put a postscript to that and say: "Provided he guides us to suit our own fancies and our own whims."

The prophets of God, from Joseph Smith to the present day, have guided us and they have guided us aright, when we have listened to that guidance. The mistakes which have been made have been because of our failure to listen to the prophet whose right it is to guide the people of God. . . .

I know that the path of safety for the Latter-day Saints is not only to sing, "We thank Thee, O God, for a Prophet, to guide us in these latter days," but to be ready and willing and anxious to be guided.”
