And I thought four was a happy crowd

I watched this and it trumped anything I might have to say for the day. Wow. From designing for Christian Dior, dressing Jackie Kennedy to Gwen Stefani, to building an orphanage in Nepal where Mother Teresa asked her to go and staying and raising 154 children.

I guess sometimes Mormons do have big families after all.

Such an inspirational video! I had to watch it twice, once for the subtitles and again to see the joy in her eyes.

I keep telling my daughter that her smile to strangers changes their life for the better, that just by being, she is a source of joy. I forget that I can be that as well…

Thank you for sharing this! I’ll forward this so as to inspire more people to do good around them, small as the gesture might be.

Wow! It’s worth the effort just to see the smiles on the kid’s faces.

Yes! Thank you for sharing. A good reminder to DO what we can, and maybe even what we first think we can’t.

This woman presented one year at the BYU/ Relief Society Women’s Conference, and she not only sold her house, she had to quit her job to go. Every business in France basically shuts down for vacation in August, but she was told that if she left they didn’t guarantee to take her back; she went anyway, and went through the same thing the following year(s) just trusting that it would work out. It was a huge leap of faith. It’s wonderful to see what has come of that, a reminder that there is something each of us can do if we decide not to be afraid.
