It was so nice to have had this past week off to be able to just CHILLAX with family and friends and catch up on some reading and faith-promoting literature & talks. I ran across an especially interesting TED Talks given by an amazing guy who just happens to be my nephew. He is my brother Merrill's son Justin who has a special way of teaching how we can turn our disabilities into abilities, challenges into opportunities and discouragements into inspiration. 

Just like my eldest brothers Virl and Tom, my sweet nephew was born hearing impaired. I think you too will be touched by his humble practice of embracing his limitations as he brings hope, love and encouragement to others, despite his own personal challenges. He's a great example to all that no matter what we face in life... with a positive outlook, we can overcome most obstacles, particularly, with a lot of patience and persistence. I think you'll enjoy it!

“Behold, I have refined thee, but not with silver; I have chosen thee in the furnace of affliction.” (Isaiah 48:10)

This Sunday let's ponder if we are ignoring our inner-passions and think about opening up those roadblocks... so that we may achieve our dreams and goals with full faith, passion and vigor. 

Enjoy this super day and Happy Sunday!
