My New Life

I love this message. I love that it is real, that it is personal. I saw Stephanie Nielson (the woman in this video) when we were out getting ice cream the other day. And as I watched this video again just now it occurred to me again that she's a real person, just like me, and remembering how close and how real we all are made me want to try to be more like her, to share more of who I am. I hope you all know how real you are to me. I think of you as I take pictures for the tutorials I write. I wonder where you live. I laugh at all the funny comments you leave for me. I find joy in connecting with you, whether you live ten feet away or across the world. Some of you I may never meet. Some of you I may never even know that you read the things I share. But I know you are there. So does Heavenly Father. May that peace carry you though the trials of a new school year and all the new or continuing bumps in the road that surely lie ahead.

Love,
Katie

Katie, Thanks for sharing that. I love the end quote from Elder Holland as well. I adore the Mormon Messages. They are so beautifully done and always touch my heart.

Thanks, Katie. Stephanie's story and her thoughts have been inspiring to me today. A good fit with the Sunday school lesson on Job.
