I was mesmorized listening to the stories of other Mormons this morning. My church has done an amazing job with their site Mormon.org. I really love this page that features small videos of different Mormons and how they define themselves.
Here is a video to a mom named Rochelle that really touched me. I loved how she ended her 30 seconds. "I'm Rochelle. I'm a redhead. I'm a Texan. I'm a mother, and I'm a Mormon."
Being a mom is so wonderful, but I have always had a soft spot in my heart for the mom's of special needs kids. I am almost jealous of them. No, I AM jealous of them. God has given them a great gift. A special reminder that stays with them constantly that God is love.
Check out this video of Jane Clayson. You remember her from her job as a Network Journalist. You know, the one she gave up to be home with her kids.
Go and check out the videos. They are amazing. I love hearing people's life stories. I will be watching videos the rest of the day. So far I have been introduced to a guy who works at the Library of Congress, a successful brilliant singer in England (who happens to be black and was left by his mother who went back to Nigeria when he was 11), a professional surfer, a Harley Davidson sculptor, and a several other professional artists.
I love Mormons. They are all so amazing. But, you know what? All people are amazing. Everyone has a story. I wish I could learn the story of each and every person I come in contact with.
If any of you ever want to meet some Mormons. Come to church with me anytime.
