In this national bestseller, the president of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Gordon B.

Drawing on anecdotes from his much-admired life of faith and service, as well as examples from American culture today, he examines ten virtues that have always illuminated the path to a better world: love, honesty, morality, civility, learning, forgiveness and mercy, thrift and industry, gratitude, optimism, and faith. He then shows how the two guardians of virtue–marriage and the family–can keep us on that path, even in difficult times. Standing for Something is an inspiring blueprint for what we all can do–as individuals, as a nation, and as a world community–to rediscover the values and virtues that have historically made us strong and that will lead us to a brighter future.
