Oh how easy it is to Judge others….. Most of the time we really have no idea what is going on in their lives… I have shared today’s video before… I feel it is that important to share it again. Most of the time we are so concerned about our own situations we assume to know and think others should conform to us. We think as Dave Blanchard says “systemically”.. Meaning that it is either black or white, win or lose, my way or no way….and so forth. Take time to watch this short clip. Become resolved to try harder to understand the people around you. Try to understand what they might be going through, instead of judging them. This takes a much higher thought process. The “intrinsic” worth of another person is far more important in the end.

Every 40 seconds someone takes their life in this world. The obvious question is WHY? Why have things gotten so bad, or their perception of things gotten so bad? How can we address this horrible statistic. In today’s echo Elder Jeffrey R. Holland talks about mental illness and his own personal experience with it. Understanding that mental illness is a real illness is the first step. Knowing you are not broken and you have tremendous value is vital to moving out of the fog. Finally and probably the most important thing is allowing our Heavenly Father and Savior into our lives to help. Having HOPE is what allows us to continue to get up and eventually we can be free from that despair. Take time to watch this wonderful video today and share it with those you love.

One of my favorite movies of all time is the documentary “Happy”. I highly suggest you watch it and share it with others. Our ultimate drive in life is to be HAPPY…. Far too often we think “things” will bring us that HAPPINESS we covet… What we find is quite the opposite. It seems the more we focus on ourselves and our own happiness the lonelier we get and the unhappier we get. In today’s episode we show one of the drivers of happiness in our lives. Take time to watch today’s clip and begin to adapt this into your own lives..

The Daily Echo: My favorite title of all is “Father”…… June 19, 2016

As I sit and reflect on this wonderful day, Father’s Day 2016….I can’t help but see my father before me, along with my journey as a father, and now looking at my son as a father. Today’s video is a very special video to me. The first time I saw this video I identified with every part of it. I get emotional every time I watch this young father take on each day with one goal in mind…..Take care of your family…You see all I ever wanted to be in life was a Husband and Father. It seems like yesterday that I was blessed with my first child… How time has flied almost 27 years later… I wouldn’t trade any of those days. Now that my fatherhood has taken me into grand fatherhood it’s only gets better. How fortunate I am to have had the example of a father who lived by every word of this video. How blessed I have been to have married an angel who’s patience is shown everyday with me. How thankful I am for my 5 children who have taught me continually since the days they were born. And finally how thankful I am for a Heavenly Father that has given me a very brief glimpse into what he experiences everyday. I can think of no greater title in this life…… What a blessing it is to be a father. Happy Fathers day to my Dad who is the “worlds greatest Dad”, and now my son who I know would sacrifice all he has for his precious wife and little angel girl Linnea. Happy Father’s Day to every father out there who has taken that title and magnified it. For those of you who have not, there is still time to make a difference. Take the time before it’s too late to reconcile any differences you may have had with your children. They love you and want above all else….Dad back in their lives…
