    I love having these little gems handy. I use it for FHE a lot. It is dated, 365 quotes. I like going to todays date and it seems like the quote is written for that specific day in my life. I also love the way this book feels. It is small and chubby with a padded cover. It make s a great gift, also....

    I started reading this 365 day devotional at the beginning of the year to start off my day with something inspirational. Ironically, President Hinckley just passed away, but he'll still be with me each day before I leave my home.

    It was a Christmas gift when I met the prophet while on my mission. I love daily scripture and spiritual thought, perfect for days when you don't have time to read as much scripture as you like.

    You can always count on Gordon B. Hinckley for some guided self improvement. I could read this book a hundred times and still learn something from him.

    What an uplifting compilation of Gordon B. Hinckley quotes. I intended to read it a bit at a time, but ended up going through it in just a few days because it was so full of soul-feeding optimism and hope.

    This is a short devotional-type book. My husband and I would read a little of it before we went to bed. Every day has a scripture and then a short quote from President Hinckley. Not a scripture-reading replacement, obviously, but a nice little book to have. It was given to us as a gift (I think). I'm not much into books that you have to read page-by-page throughout the whole year. I just forget to read it and then it's "Oh, it's June now and my bookmark is in March. I'm a loser."

    I've decided recently to try this book again. I have no issue with it, or its contents. I love Gordon Hinckley. It's a great little book with great little thoughts. My rating is more an indictment of the style. I have never been one that loves the 365 day inspirational message type book. It feels like it should be in calendar form, and I'd flip through it as eagerly as a Far Side or Most Amazing Facial Hair calendar. I just wish this book was in narrative form, and a tad more substantive. We'll I've decided recently to try this book again. I have no issue with it, or its contents. I love Gordon Hinckley.

    I LOVED this book! This book is filled with uplifting and ispirational quotes to get us though for EVERY day of the year. We read it as a family, each quote in the morning BEFORE we would pray. Again, I know the prophets are called of God. Everyone should read this book! I am not quite sure when I actually started to read the book but as a family we have read it over and over again! Love this book!

    Hi Friends! I really liked this little daily thought book. The thoughts are very positive and uplifting, just like President Hinckley was...and I am sure still is! I read it at a time when a lot of things were going very well in my life (things are still fine), and it was an inspiration to start each day with a thought. You can actually start at anytime because it just goes throughout the whole year, and then you can start over! I highly recommend it, he is a great teacher! Thanks! Kathy

    Daily reader. Each day has a small scripture plus a quote from the Prophet. Some of the quotes I found had nothing to do with the scripture, IMO, which is really just a reflection of the editor. I like a little more in-depth study, but overall, a decent book if you just want to skim the surface. I wouldn't buy it again in hindsight. I got much more from "Teachings of Gordon B. Hinckley" in 2 volumes. Daily reader. Each day has a small scripture plus a quote from the Prophet.

    I didn't exactly read this book "on schedule" (it has one thought for each day of the year) but I still thoroughly enjoyed all the quotes by the Prophet Gordon B. Hinckley and corresponding scriptures. I loved reading all the simple reminders about how to improve and focus on what's really important.

    I read this book a long time ago. I need to dig it out and re-read it as a positive thought for the day. I am putting this on my list of things to do so I won't forget to do it!

    I read this book back in 2005 and I distinctly remember sitting in an airport in Salt Lake City waiting for my flight and just feeling like this was the most profound book. I was totally prepared to hand my copy to any person who asked what it was. I think I gave away several copies of it for Christmas that year. Highly highly recommend.

    The Flipped Page (Susan K)

    Loved this book! Read it ages ago, but so worth all the information, thoughts and quotes. Truly if you self-examine yourself, and are a thoughtful person, it really is for anyone like that. The challenge to become better, to help others can be so meaningful and this will inspire you to do that! One of my favorite books!

    How could you not love this book. The daily messages an inspiration are wonderful and thought provoking. I continually use this book for whenever I need inspiration for myself or others. I carried it around with me for years.

    What a wonderful way to begin each new day. Every day president Hinckley gives some of his own words of wisdom along with a scripture. It takes 60 seconds out of your day and keeps the rest of it focused on the Savior. Who needs the morning cup of coffee?

    This is the type of book where you read a little snipit each day and I am bad at doing that. I really like this book overall, but I don't typically like books like this because they are too labor intensive. I only read it because it is counsel from the Prophet.

    Gordon B. Hinckley wrote it - do I really need to say more? Okay, well, I LOVE his wit and wisdom. No matter what he's talking about or who he's talking to you can tell that he truly cares!!

    I love this little book; I can pick it up at any time, find today's date and get a little nugget of wisdom, hope and encouragement. When I miss President Hinckley, especially during General Conference, I pull out this little volume and give myself a dose. Lovely.

    James Here! Read this book too. It is not a novel but more like a daily quote book for each day of the year. I first started reading it in the mission field and have returned for some daily reminders that the Gospel of Jesus Christ really is the only thing that matters.

    This is a great book for a daily thought that our family likes to read along with our daily scripture study. Or sometimes if we don't get to scriptures until the evening then this is a good quick thought for the morning to start the day.

    These quotes have been very inspirational for me! I love having a new quote for each day of the year! Once I get done with year, I just re-read the quotes all over again, and they correspond with scriptures!

    This is a fun little book of scripture with commentary by President hinkley. I love his comments. It is a great way to spend just a few minutes inviting the spirit into your day and learning a little something about the gospel.

    This is set up to be a daily read. I started to do that but went ahead and just read it through. I got alot of insight from this book. I can see the benefit that comes from starting the day with a good thought. I will probably use it as it was intended starting next year.
