How President Gordon B. Hinckley's Grandson Is "Lighting the World" As He Helps Build Temples


What an incredible way this man has continued his grandfather's legacy.

Former LDS Church President Gordon B. Hinckley created a temple building program unprecedented in the history of his faith. Now his grandson is following in his footsteps.

David Hinckley, the grandson of the man known as the "temple building" leader of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, helps build temples for a living. He works as an electrical engineer for Spectrum Engineers and his company, which has many clients, has been hired to design lighting for temples around the world, both exterior and interior.

"To have an opportunity to work on temples was something I was very excited about," David said.
