President M. Russell Ballard, Acting President of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, said the best thing that ever happened to him was meeting and marrying his wife, Sister Barbara Bowen Ballard.

Two years after her death on Oct. 1, 2018, President Ballard speaks of her love and influence — and of his loneliness without her — in a Church News video, titled “Simply Beautiful.”
