PRESIDENT HINCKLEY'S PASSING


I know that my posts are typically light hearted and silly, but I can't pass on the opportunity to post about the beloved Prophet and President of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, President Gordon B. Hinckley. He passed away this evening at 7:00 p.m. and although he was 97 years old and he is able to be rejoined with his wife, I am still a little sad. Although I have never met him, I feel a closeness to him that I cannot explain. He was such a sweet and good man. I love him and I am thankful for the service he gave to our Church and to God. It brings me peace to think of him reunited with his wife and other loved ones and also with God and Jesus Christ. You can read more about President Hinckley and his life here: http://newsroom.lds.org/ldsnewsroom/eng/news-releases-stories/beloved-church-president-gordon-b-hinckley-dies-at-97
If you have questions about the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints you can go to the official church website: http://www.lds.org/ or another website from our church that answers questions about our church: http://www.mormon.org/
If you are not a member of our church and religion, I encourage you to learn more about us through our missionaries who serve throughout the world on a voluntary basis to be able to teach others about the gospel of our Savior, Jesus Christ.
