A Woman to Admire
Sister Hinckley is one of the woman whom I most admire and respect. She exemplified what it is to be a disciple of Christ. She showed true love and compassion in every aspect of her life.
She was blessed to be the wife of the late Prophet and President of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, Gordon B. Hinckley. He expressed on numerous occasions his devotion and love for her.
I love the story when they had been dating for some time. He wanted to propose marriage, but he only had $100.00 to his name. Marjorie came from a well to do family. But, he summoned all his courage and proposed. I loved her response, "You mean I will be your wife plus I get $100.00! Of course I'll marry you."
