For Every Latter-day Saint, May 03, 2004
By Elaine

This is one of the most excellent books I have ever read. I thoroughly recommend it to anyone who is trying to understand life with it's ups and downs, trying to build & repair relationships, or wanting to gain more spirituality. It is my mother's book which has sat in their house for years, and only now have I discovered it - married and two kids later!!! I am purchasing my own copy as it is one of her favourites too!

This is the original from which Covey based all his later 7 Habits books, writings, seminars, etc. Much more powerful than expected, this is not a book for the squeamish. If you're afraid to improve, if you're afraid to make your life enormously successful, then stay away from this book. If you want to know what First Things First means, here's a great place to start.

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Craig L. Adams on May 7, 2002
Format: Paperback
I read this book for the first time back in 1980 when Steven R Covey was not a household name. It helped me to ACT where I had previously only THOUGHT about making changes in my life. I found that for me, it was a life changing event. I read it again in 2001 and it had the same effect. It amazes me that the council and advice offered within would be as applicable today as in 1980. That's the power of this book. It was deeper and wider than imagined and I believe it to be one of the best self-help books of all time when dealing with life in a spiritual realm.

I found this was very applicable Covey-ese in a spiritual setting. It made religious principles that I feel strongly about, more realistic for day-to-day situations. Although sometimes the advice was a little simplistic, it was generally very well thought out, and realistic.

This book has changed my life more than any other non-scriptural book. Covey's views and suggestions are so right and so clear. I wish I had followed his discipline suggestions sooner, now that I know my teenage son has ADHD and OCD. I just thought he wasn't talking to me, with my kind of child. His principles apply to everyone. Kindness, patience and PRACTICE are the key. This is only a drop in the well of knowledge in this book. Everything from communication with God in prayer to teasing is addressed.

As the title indicates, this book is the connection between Covey's Christian/religious thinking and his popular 7 habits books. It draws from his experience as a mission president and has a lot of advice he gave to his missionaries and as in other books his experience with his family members. One of the stories of the missionaries that was in the Ireland mission while Covey was the president there really stuck with me. The missionary was sloppy, unkempt and had an uncontrolled mouth and couldn’t study because he was constantly distracted. He committed to getting up before 6 AM every day and slowly all his other defects followed. Since reading that and because I had time and I tried it and those two hours every morning has become extremely valuable to me. I very much dislike being constantly rushed and being stuck doing endless tasks, and having that two hours in the morning to think and read and ponder and re-center and work on my ongoing sifting through gospel ideas has just really helped my days feel much more purposeful. The book made an important connection because it helped tie spirituality and God back to real life and getting along with people. Before I was living the basics and not breaking any major commandments but I was like this missionary, saying offensive things to people and somewhat sloppy in personal details but not really doing anything completely wrong. Even after serving a mission I never really got in the habit of getting up before 7 AM consistently because I was usually the missionary expected to be enforcing the rules on the Latinos. After a mission I took doing well in school a lot more seriously than personal habits and considered staying up late to study or try an all night-er rather than getting up early because that’s what other students did.Read more ›

If you are LDS, this book is essential for gospel founded principles in your family, social, church and work relationships. If you're not LDS, you cannot go wrong in reading this book. How to win friends and influence people is still the all time classic in people skills, but this book complements it superbly. Covey, after all authored the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. This book is not quite at the same level as the 7 Habits book but nonetheless is an excellent staple in your personal development library.

15 years ago a friend let me a copy which I read, and it had been on my mind ever since to buy my own copy. Which I now have done.I'm looking forward to reading it again.

Before Stephen R. Covey was Stephen R. Covey, he wrote several books that addressed more spiritual issues. Two of them are among the very few books I feel changed my life. One of them was The Divine Center and the other is this book. Spirituality is an important facet of my life and as such, this book is an excellent guide to incorporating it into my relationships with others. It doesn't make me perfect, but it enables me to see my relationships in a very different way. In addition to being a spiritual guidebook, it is also a practical one as well - which is one of the halmarks of Covey's other works. I recommend this book to anyone looking to enhance the quality of their relationships.

This is the one of best books I've ever found on how to live the gospel of Jesus Christ. It helps me to keep an eternal perspective when things
get difficult in life, especially with other people.

Covey is well known for his many books, but this the Celestial one he began with! Covey is first and foremost a true Christian and a Latter-day Saint. If you read his other books, you will see that he takes from this book to teach them the principles they need and are ready for.
