The Miracle Of Hope

It’s only a three minute video clip, but it’s three minutes spoken by a man who is incredibly special to me (I’ll explain why below) that reminds us that what we need right now is RELENTLESS HOPE…it reminds us that WE CAN HOPE…that WE SHOULD HOPE…that WE HAVE EVERY REASON TO HOPE:

So why is the man speaking in the video so special to me? It’s not just because he’s an amazing speaker (he’s definitely one of my absolute favorites), and it’s not just because he’s an Apostle of Jesus Christ. It’s because for years he lived just a few doors down on the same condo floor as my grandparents, Stanley and Helen Rees’, and after my grandfather passed away for the remainder of the years Grandma continued to live there, Elder Holland and his wife would stop and check on Grandma consistently to make sure she was okay. Not just once or twice…I’m talking daily at times. Which may sound like a little thing since they were just a few doors down but if you knew the incredibly taxing schedule the Apostle’s have you’d know there was nothing little about it. That selfless act of repeated service meant the world to my Grandmother, who has since passed away…it meant even more to me…because it gave me a testimony that Elder Holland is not just someone who speaks of loving Jesus Christ at a pulpit speaking to an audience of millions, he’s someone who LIVES loving Jesus Christ in his private acts of service he does for the one. So when he says we have every reason to hope, I trust him.

Faith + hope + charity = miracles.
