Henry B. Eyring is a prominent member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. He has served for decades and his life is a beautiful example of faithfulness.  Today I'm sharing a new biography about Eyring.

I included the page count on this book because it is massive! I think this is such a neat book because Henry B. Eyring has shared his personal journal entries and given a personal snapshot of his life. He has had a very interesting life! I haven't finished reading this one because my husband actually snagged it and started reading it too. It definitely has a place on any Mormon bookshelf. I think this is a wonderful reminder to all of us on the value of keeping a journal.

Summary: 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.
