Overview

When Marjorie Pay stepped into the Salt Lake Temple in 1937 to be married to Gordon B. Hinckley, she little knew what dramatic turns her life would take. How could any newlywed envision that she might someday be the eternal companion of the prophet and President of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints?
In Glimpses into the Life and Heart of Marjorie Pay Hinckley, dozens of family members and friends share experiences and feelings that demonstrate the character of a quietly remarkable woman. These vignettes combine with the words of Sister Hinckley herself, gleaned from talks, letters, and conversations, to create a portrait that is engaging and inspiring. From her profound yet simple faith to her optimism and sense of humor, from her love of mothering and grandmothering to her enthusiasm for learning, Sister Hinckley's personality traits are perfectly suited to her mission. She goes through life with a smile in her heart and a gift for loving that reaches out to embrace everyone she meets. As you meet her in these pages, you'll fall under the spell of her warmth, her genuineness, and her testimony.
"This book is not a recipe for others to follow, but just one more example of the gospel in action in the life of a fellow sojourner," writes her daughter Virginia H. Pearce. But in sharing this example, she expresses the hope that "maybe, just maybe, we who read it will be inspired to try a little harder to be a little better - to become the people the Lord knows we can be."

    One of my favorite books

    This is the book I reach for when I start feeling discouraged. This is the best parenting, self-help, and motivational book, all rolled into one, that I have ever read. It makes me wish that I had known Marjorie Hinckley.

    Marvelous

    I adore this book. Marjorie Hinckley's life and character are such inspirations. Everything about this book is wonderful, but I especially like the appendix at the end with several of the talks she delivered during her life. This is a book that I am proud to have on my bookshelf.

    If you don't have someone to turn to - turn to this book.

    Everyone needs a role model and every women can find one in Marjorie Pay Hinckley. This book offers the best advice you can find - it is heartwarming and endearing. If you don't have someone to turn to, you can turn to this book. I love to use it for graduation gifts to give young women an inspiration for their lives. I love this quote, 'We each do the best we can. My best may not be as good as your best, but it's my best. The fact is that we know when we are doing our best and when we are not. If we are not doing our best, it leaves us with a gnawing hunger and frustration But when we do our level best, we experience a peace.' Just one little gem in a gold mine.

    Phenominal!

    This book is amazing! What a great lady Marjorie Hinckley was - she truly fits what her daughter said about her, 'She is as practical as Dr. Spock, and a lot more accessible.' Her book is witty, thoughtful, and in some parts downright hillarious with her comments and quips. Marjorie Hinckley truly was an amazing woman, and will be sorely missed on this earth!
