Reflections of a Scientist

I walked through the doors of the Henry Eyring chemistry building many times as a student at the University of Utah. I learned inorganic chemistry from Ted Eyring. Organic chemistry was also fascinating. Science became more than just memorizing laws and equations, but rather a way to learn the mysteries of the Universe. I have been humbled by it. As I struggled in my personal life, science became an anchor for me. I happened to read “Reflections of a Scientist” at a point in my life when I doubted the importance or relevance of faith. Looking back, I recognize the important role Dr. Eyring played in my decision not to ignore certain truths because of certain unknowns. I have found greater understanding and deeper love for the universe because of such books as “Reflections of a Scientist” and “Mormon Scientist”
