    What an encouraging and uplifting book. Gordon B. Hinckley has always publically expressed his awe for and appreciation of women and this book puts his words to beautiful art. 'Woman is God's supreme cretion. Only after the earth had been formed, after the day had been separated from the night, after the waters had been divided from the land, after vegetation and animal life had been reated, and after man had been placed on the earth, was woman created; and only then was the work pronounced comp What an encouraging and uplifting book. Gordon B. Hinckley has always publically expressed his awe for and appreciation of women and this book puts his words to beautiful art. 'Woman is God's supreme cretion. Only after the earth had been formed, after the day had been separated from the night, after the waters had been divided from the land, after vegetation and animal life had been reated, and after man had been placed on the earth, was woman created; and only then was the work pronounced complete and good.' In this book he reminds us as women to educate ourselves, encourage our husbands and families, to be happy, not to waste time on trivial things while our babies grow so quickly. He wonders what a different place our world would be if every woman treasured her child as a jewel. If every home had a nurturing and caring mother. I love that he tells young women that they have the potential to become absolutely anything they set their minds to. That with their minds, bodies, and spirits working together, they can walk high roads that lead to achievement and happiness. I also love that he recognizes our desire and instinct to reach out in love to those in distress and need. This is who I am. I care, I love, it makes me happy to take care of and help those that are in need.

    Fantastic!! Leaves you with such a sweet spirit in your heart and soul. I loved the powerful quotes from a prophet of God. You can truly tell just how much President Hinckley loved the women of the church. The artwork was also so beautiful and inspiring. I read it in less than a half hour but I know that I will keep it close to re-read often.

    First of all, this book is beautiful to look at, with breathtaking illustrations. Needless to say, the quotes were inspiring. It was so good to "hear" President Hinckley's voice again.

    Another great Sunday afternoon read. I always loved how President Hinckley encouraged the sisters of the Church. On page one is a quote that I remember hearing President Hinckley say in General Conference. I loved hearing it then and I loved reading it again today. Without you, our Father's plan of happiness would be frustrated and have no real meaning. You are fifty percent of the membership of the Church and mothers of the other fifty percent. No one can dismiss you lightly. --Gordon B. Hinc Another great Sunday afternoon read. I always loved how President Hinckley encouraged the sisters of the Church.

The art is soft and beautiful with gentle, yet powerful, use of light. It is a perfect reflection of what President Hinckley taught the Church about the role of women.

    I read this book periodically. This collection of beautiful quotes and pictures is truly inspiring and shows how much President Hinckley had a deep love and admiration for women. I bought this book for my mom, sisters, and girlfriends for mothers day, although some are not LDS, I felt that they could still appreciate this book and KNOW how important they are in their roles as women; daughters, sisters, mothers, friends, etc. I highly recommend this book to all women, and not just LDS women.

    This little book was like an inspirational picture book for women. It had artwork on one page, and a quote by LDS President Hinckley on the opposite page. I enjoyed it, but my artistic daughter was not impressed by the quality of most of the paintings. I didn't entirely agree with her, but it was a very romantic looking book. I enjoyed reading it, and found a lot of inspiration in the quotes, but I wouldn't buy it.

    I loved President Hinkley and adored sister Hinkley. They were such a wonderful examples to me of what it was to be faithful, service-oriented, and generous with their love. I enjoyed this beautiful quick read. I never tire of hearing their pearls of wisdom, no matter how often I hear those same words, over and over again. A wonderful VT gift or thoughtful gift to a friend. I highly recommend it.

    As always President Hinckley's love, compassion and understanding just jumped off the pages to support, encourage and boost up the women who read this book. Marjory Pay Hinckley also contributed and fast confirmed to me that she was a woman that just knew who she was, what her purpose was and knew her place in the life and heart of our Father in Heaven. Every woman, mother and female NEEDS to read this book.

    This is an inspiring little book filled with quotations from Gordon and Marjorie Hinckley. What makes it really special, though, is that each quote is paired with a beautiful painting from a contemporary LDS artist. Together the artwork and the text reinforce that Heavenly Father loves his daughters, and that we (amidst our busyness in being wives, mothers, and learners in the world) are doing an important work in moving forward the kingdom.

    This was a sweet inspirational book, full of beautiful artwork and uplifting encouraging words for women. As I read I was reminded of how wonderful it is to be a daughter of God and the great responsibility I have in building His kingdom here on earth. It made me want to try harder and be a better daughter, wife, mother, sister, and friend. Thanks Mom!

    How wonderful Pres. Hinckley's final book is for women! Reading his words give me such hope and optimism. He and his wife Marjorie were such an example of a happy loving couple. Its nice to have a book with quotes from both. A beautiful keepsake, one I will keep open and close by!

    I just read this. It was a gift from my sister. It's not a story, but a resource or collection of quotes from President and Sister Hinckley regarding women. It's quite inspiring and appropriate for Mother's Day.

    I was given this book from my in-laws for Mother's Day. What a great tribute to Pres. Hinckley. It is filled with wonderful, uplifting quotes about being a women. It was inspiring to "hear" the words of a beloved prophets as I read this little book.

    Very, very, very beautiful! The art is wonderful and enhances the sweet and comforting and strengthening words from Pres & Sis Hinckley. Very, very worth the few minutes it takes to read. This one will be out where I can see it and be reminded daily! (Thank you Nan & Breck!) Very, very, very beautiful!

    This is more of a book that is advice page by page. The pictures are beautiful as well as the message. You can hear President and Sister Hinckley speaking as you read it. It is a good book to read when you are discouraged in your ability to accomplish everything.

    President Hinckley was "my prophet" growing up. His words really make me feel like I can make it in this world as a stay at home mommy. He always knew how to make the sisters in the church feel special.

    What a surprise, I loved this book. :-) This is my new Prozac book--those days when I am down and need a pick-me-up, these beautiful quotes on womanhood by beloved President Hinckley, paired with exquisite paintings--it'd need to be a dark day indeed that this wouldn't help. Beautiful.

    I loved this book to for women. President Hinckley gave such uplifting expression of love and counsel for women. The art work was so beautiful. I like how he even put select quotes from his wife into the book. So small and so powerful.

    Love this book. It reminds us of the wonderful and sacred blessing it is to be a women. It reminds us of the sacred calling of being a mother and that the Lord holds that in the highest regards. Will read it over and over.

    I loved this book. It spoke to my heart and reminded me of the blessing it is to be a woman, a wife and a mother. I miss President Hinckley. This would make a great birthday gift for the special women in your life that need reminding of their worth sometimes.

    This is really not a "book" per se... more just a collection of quotes, but they are all super inspirational, of course. I will use them for future FHE's with my daughter for sure. Lots of good stuff.

    An inspiring book that reaffirms the love and respect President Gordon B. Hinckley has for women. His expressions of love and council are coupled with beautiful artist rendidtions. A heartwarming book.

    The quotes are good but I deducted one star because the art in this book is horribly ugly. I'm not sure why President Hinckley is listed as the only author; four of the quotes are from his wife, Marjorie.

    This book is a repeat of quotes you find in all of President Hinckley's other books. I loved the art work but was disappointed there was no new quotes.
