Life is Good!

We Thank Thee, O God, for a Prophet!

On Sunday January 27th "Our Prophet" passed on to the other side of the veil. He will be missed greatly. I will always remember "My Prophet" who has guided me through my adolescence and helped me to follow the Savior. I am profoundly grateful for his life and example.

At his passing, some of the members of the Quorum of the 12 said of President Hinckley: “We will miss his wit and his wisdom, his leadership and his love. However, we cannot but rejoice in his reunion with his beloved Marjorie, with his parents and other family members who have gone before, and with the prophets of God, both ancient and modern, among whose eternal ranks he now stands. As the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles we echo the voice of the Master, ‘Well done, thou good and faithful servant. … Enter into the joy of thy Lord.’ ” I second their statements.

This is a Video tribute to him. It contains some of my favorite memories of President Hinckley. His testimony of the savior given in his conference talk titled "My Testimony" and it also contains the video clip from the time I went to General conference in October 2006 and everyone stood in reverenced awe as we cried our way through the hymn "We Thank Thee O God for a Prophet."
