    About Author

    1. Gordon B. Hinckley says:
      President Hinckley was known, even at the age of 95, as a tireless leader who always put in a full day at the office and traveled extensively around the world to mix with Church members, now numbering nearly 13 million in 171 nations.His quick wit and humor, combined with an eloquent style at the pulpit, made him one of the most loved of modern Church leaders A profoundly spiritual man, he had a great fondness for history and often peppered his sermons with stories from the Church s pioneer past.He was a popular interview subject with journalists, appearing on 60 Minutes with Mike Wallace and on CNN s Larry King Live, as well as being quoted and featured in hundreds of newspapers and magazines over the years During the Salt Lake Olympics of 2002, his request that the Church refrain from proselytizing visitors was credited by media with generating much of the goodwill that flowed to the Church from the international event.In recent years, a number of major developments in the Church reflected President Hinckley s personal drive and direction In calling for 100 temples to be in operation before the end of the year 2000, the Church president committed the Church to a massive temple building program.In 1999 169 years after the Church was organized by its founder, Joseph Smith the Church had 56 operating temples Three years later that number had doubled, largely because of a smaller, highly practical temple architectural plan that delivered these sacred buildings to Church members in far flung parts of the world Many Church members can now experience the sacred ceremonies that occur only in temples, including marriages for eternity and the sealing of families in eternal units.President Hinckley was the most traveled president in the Church s history His duties took him around the world many times to meet with Latter day Saints in than 60 countries He was the first Church president to travel to Spain, where in 1996 he broke ground for a temple in Madrid and to the African nations of Nigeria, Ghana, Kenya, Zimbabwe and Cape Verde, where he met with thousands of Latter day Saints in 1998 In 2005, he traveled nearly 25,000 miles on a seven nation, nine day tour to Russia, South Korea, China, Taiwan, India, Kenya, and Nigeria.At a general conference of Church members in April 2001, President Hinckley initiated the Perpetual Education Fund an ambitious program to help young members of the Church mainly returning missionaries from developing countries receive higher education and work related training that they would otherwise likely never receive.Closer to his Salt Lake City home, President Hinckley announced the construction of a new Conference Center in 1996 and dedicated it four years later Seating 21,000 people, it is believed to be the largest religious and theater auditorium in the world and has become the hub for the Church s general conference messages to the world, broadcast in 54 languages.Even before his term as president, President Hinckley s extensive Church service included 14 years as a counselor in the First Presidency, the highest presiding body in the government of the Church, and 20 years before that as a member of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles.President Hinckley was born 23 June 1910 in Salt Lake City, a son of Bryant Stringham and Ada Bitner Hinckley One of his forebears, Stephen Hopkins, came to America on the Mayflower Another, Thomas Hinckley, served as governor of the Plymouth Colony from 1680 to 1692.President Hinckley s first job was as a newspaper carrier for the Deseret News, a Salt Lake City daily After attending public schools in Salt Lake City, he earned a bachelor of arts degree at the University of Utah and then served two years as a full time missionary for the Church in Great Britain He served with distinction and ultimately was appointed as an assistant to the Church apostle who presided over all the Europe

      I love President Hinckley I think one of the legacies he left with me is all the encouragement he gave the women of the church He always shared that he knew we were doing a great job as mothers, wives, and sisters, but asked if we could strive to be a little better The quotes are taken from talks he has given over the years and are paired with beautiful photos on each page A book that could be easily read over and over A gem of a book

      Shocking for an LDS person to not rate highly a book by a former President of their Church, but I do not like these kind of books which string together some pretty thoughts but really do not take you anywhere new It feels exploitive, to me Lovely pictures, but not a strong message that will change me because I have picked up this book.
