Whatever You Choose to Be (Hardback) *
Author - Ann Romney
For today's graduates, the possibilities and opportunities are exhilarating and endless. But while there is adventure ahead, the next steps are not set out in a predetermined course—perhaps for the first time in a graduate's life. In this delightful gift book, inspired by a 2014 commencement speech she gave, the former first lady of Massachusetts and wife of 2012 presidential candidate Mitt Romney offers eight practical (and surprising) tips for the road ahead—pieces of advice she wishes someone had given her at her own graduation.
With stories and examples gathered from decades of life experience, Ann Romney shares candid, inspirational lessons learned from both adversity and success. (Her husband, Mitt, adds a little perspective of his own in the book's Foreword.) For those just beginning their journey, this hopeful, encouraging book provides bite-sized tips—personal and professional—for any walk of life, whatever you choose to be.
ANN ROMNEY received a bachelor of arts degree in French from Brigham Young University and was awarded an honorary doctorate from Souther Utah University in 2014. As the first lady of Massachusetts, she worked to focus attention on the challenges facing at-risk youth and served as the Governor's Liaison to the White House Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives. Diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 1998, she has volunteered much of her time to raise awareness of the disease and founded the Ann Romney Center for Neurological Diseases at Brigham and Women's Hospital. She places primary importance on being a wife, a mother of five sons, and a grandmother.
I've read it TWICE!

Because her points are well written and informative. I've been out of high school for 4 years now. I cannot believe it, but her principles or advice, even guidelines are for every one. I believe that and I know it. I recommend this book to my friend and soon to be sister missionary of the Lord, Octavea. Life is an incredible journey, and a fun one. Take Ann Romney's lessons and tips with you for a lifetime.
Great book for anyone who needs a recharge on life!!

This book completely filled up my spiritual meter. I totally needed this book to reassure me of my path in life. I highly recommend this book for everyone...especially women. This would make a great graduation and mother's day gift.
