Because He Lives

Happy Good Friday, my friends.
Have you seen this video yet? Travis' company The Good Line contributed to some of the amazing shots in this video (not the one's of Jesus, FYI, mostly shots of people in other countries) and I love it so much. It's a good way to get in the Easter spirit.

Another beautiful Easter video is this short Bible video. Our family has watched this several times over the last few weeks as we try to explain to our children what this beautiful Easter holiday is about. It isn't about the death of Christ- not really! The death of Christ wouldn't be any different than any other death before it or after it if it weren't for what happened afterward. Easter is the celebration of Christ's resurrection.  His return, His life, and the redemption that came for each of us because of Him!

Today, in addition to being the day before Easter weekend, is also the day before General Conference for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.
Twice a year (in April and October), all members of the Mormon faith try to gather together (even just in families or as friends) and watch or listen to the prophets, apostles, and leaders of the church. There are two days of uplifting talks and speeches about the simple doctrine of Christ, how to love your family and others better, how to be your best self, and always- how to grow closer to God. I encourage everyone to tune in, even if you only have enough time to listen to a single talk, even if you're not Christian or Mormon.
