Comments on "My New Life"

This Mormon Messages video, "My New Life" has changed me. I had never seen it before, maybe you have, but there was something incredibly special and humbling about it. How often do I take everything in my life for granted? How often do I go throughout life just day to day without stopping to look at the beauties that are around me, including my family? Life can change in less than a second, and if we're not careful, we may miss the big picture. We may miss that everything we have is on loan to us from a loving Heavenly Father who loves us more than we could ever imagine.

Next time you see or talk to a family member or good friend, tell them you love them. How often do we forget to do that. I know I do. There are so many opportunities to look beyond ourselves, to see farther than we think we can. This week, I am going to try to look for the little blessings, and thank Heavenly Father every night for them. Join me?

  1. I love this video. Her name is Stephanie Nelson and they live in Provo, near where David lives. She writes a blog that is very popular and inspiring. I read it everyday and I feel like I know her. It's amazing the testimony she has despite what has happened to her.

    You're doing a great job Sister!
