Marc and I just watched "Meet the Mormons." I hardly know where to begin. If you haven't heard about it or seen it, this is what you might find on a flier or imdb.
"Meet the Mormons examines the very diverse lives of six devout members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Filmed on location and across the globe, Meet the Mormons takes viewers on t journey into the day-to-day realities of individuals living in the U.S., Costa Rica, Nepal and beyond. From their individual passions to their daily struggles, each story paints a picture as rich and unique as the next while challenging the stereotypes that surround the Mormon faith."
On a more personal level, this was a powerful and inspirational film that was thought-provoking and reminded me of how much I have to be grateful for. You can't help but be touched by the stories of these 6 individuals who teach a variety of lessons--one person can make a difference; we can rise above any challenges that we face and receive strength beyond our own; families are high priority; service is everything; there's always hope--to name just a few.
Ultimately we are all children of a loving Father in Heaven, and He is involved in our lives. He sent His Son, Jesus Christ, our Savior and Redeemer, our Brother and Friend. He lived and died and was resurrected to make all of this possible. The Gospel of Jesus Christ makes the connection between the realities of here and now to what will be if we can endure to the end.
