I Will Lead You Along

A new book about Elder Eyring's life had been published by Deseret Book.
It's called I Will Lead You Along.


It is a BIG book! I admit, I haven't finished reading it yet! I am enjoying it though- I love to get a glimpse into the lives of people- especially someone like this who we look up to!

The book includes parts of Elder Eyring's journal entries, his own sketches from the margins of his journal, and photos from his life. The photos are always my favourite part- I have to skip to that section every time, before I even get to the reading :) But it's the reading that tells me more about the photos- and I am enjoying that part too!

I love to learn about these men who we seem to think of as "larger than life", only to find that they are "real" people with real families and lives. It's inspiring to see the way that their lives are like our own and to allow stories from his own life to influence our own.

I wanted to include this summary of the book:

In 1970, Henry B. Eyring (known to all as “Hal” because his mother didn’t care for the name “Henry”) received an impression to make a daily record of his activities. Years of his journals form the backbone of this intimate 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. Henry B. Eyring’s professional, academic, and personal experiences all combined to make him uniquely qualified for the responsibilities that would become his. And Kathy, always at his side, matching his intellect and spirituality, has influenced him profoundly and contributed to his life mission in unmatchable ways. Their story, told largely in his own words, vividly demonstrates the power of the Lord and the example set by one who strives to follow His commands.

The book is available in hard cover or as a beautiful hardcover book, an ebook, or as a book/ebook combo.

Disclosure: I received this book for review purposes from Deseret Book.  No other compensation was received.
