I love the stories from the lives of the great men that have led the church in this last dispensation. Pres. McKay was half-Welsh/half-Scottish and played football for the University of Utah. Reading about Pres. McKay made me feel like Nephi in Helamen 7:7. "Oh, that I could have had my days in (those) days".

This served as an excellent text for lessons twice monthly in the Melchizedek Priesthood classes. I enjoyed them very much.
Pres. McKay was the president of the Church from the time I was born until I was 16 years old. Like the assassination of John F.

What an amazing man, and prophet as well. This guy had the whole package--when people met him they could feel he was a prophet, and I love his ideas about our thoughts radiating outward, influencing in some degree the entire world. That is as good a reason as any to think wholesomely. His conviction of the life and Atonement of Jesus Christ are the highlight of his ministry, which is nicely reflected in this book.

It's always inspiring to read the words of former prophets of the church. President McKay served from 1951-1970. There were several lessons in this compilation I enjoyed. A few of my favorites were his thoughts on "The power of prayer," "Priesthood, the Responsibility to Represent God," "Experiencing Happiness in Marriage," and "Agency and Responsibility." President McKay often preached with a softer tone, which I appreciated as I read.

I was able to teach a number of these lessons. I really enjoyed learning more about this prophet who lead the church for quite a long period.

I remember David O. McKay wearing a white suit. As a young girl I was touched by his devotion to his wife. I love this prophet and man!

Shame on me. I didn't follow along with the RS lessons while I was teaching in Young Women. My copy looks veritably new. I'm going to have to change that.
