The story of Brian Thom’s marriage proposal was recently broadcast on Boise State Public Radio:
Four years ago, Brian Thom, the Episcopal Bishop of Idaho, came up with a plan to ask Ardele Hanson to marry him. He wanted to recreate a special moment by kayaking up the Snake River to a lush, green island they had visited that summer.
In his pocket was an engagement gift, a heart-shaped necklace. The couple sat down in the StoryCorps booth in Boise to talk about that day.
