Did you all know Pres. Monson still living in his modest brick home? He decided not to move to the presidential apartment downtown in Salt Lake City where Church Presidents usually live. He also shows up to Utah Jazz basketball games and continue fishing as it's one of his passions. One thing I read that I really liked (and hope leaders can follow):
|"He has made it clear to the bishops of the church that people come before programs. If there must be a choice between helping those in need and maintaining a program, the people in need are always to be helped, even if it means disrupting programs."|
I love him a lot. Pres. Monson always tells good stories that are easy for my children to understand. I think its cool that he wants to liv in his own home, and why not its his home!

Kimball - while others were multi-word phrases, such as "do your best" from President Gordon B. Hinckley and "be in tune with and be responsive to the whisperings of the spirit" from President Harold B. Lee. Ref. Source 1
I just love Pres. Monson. He shares these amazing stories that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside and I am glad that he is our Prophet for today.
I saw him personally in one of the temple dedications and yes most folks love him because he's always in a good mood, tell stories and wiggles his ears I guess it appeals to some you know what am I saying? It doesnt to me but you can well see he seems to be a good man.
