Mormon Tabernacle Choir: Patriotic Flash Mob

The Mormon Tabernacle Choir decided to get a bit patriotic – flash mob style. Colonial Williamsburg visitors were treated to a flash mob performance by the 400 member Mormon Tabernacle Choir.

Marty Mears, a lifelong resident of the area, heard news of a special event and showed up.

“It was just a thrill to be among them,” she said. “I didn’t know it was the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. These people started singing. It was so beautiful. Now that I know who they were, I keep thinking, ‘Who would have thought I’d be surrounded by the Mormon Tabernacle Choir?’ What a thrill.”

Moments That Matter Most

It’s so hard to take time to do the things that matter most. . . . but the little things that matter most make the biggest difference.

For those who don’t know, I’m currently going to college while raising three small children. It’s often hard to balance the busy life of the kids’  school functions, homework, church, sports,while helping my husband with his business (every now and then), keeping up with my schooling and homework and so forth. I know you all understand this because you have super busy lives too. I try to do my stuff on my own time (homework, house chores, etc) but it’s often the case that I fall short of that and neglect the kids to do the other. On such occasions I quickly notice that arguing, crying, and sad children seem to live in my house.  I’ve found that if I just take a little time from what I’m doing to do the things that matter most – play and laugh with them – that things quickly turn around.

I’ve never regretted putting my stuff aside to be with them. Doing so not only makes them happy, but me as well. Taking the time to love them is a lot more effective than getting mad at them for interrupting me or being loud. If I just play with them for a moment, their spirits brighten and they can go on happily for quite awhile. They just need to know that they’re important to me . . . and that I’d put anything aside to be with them. My children are the moments that matter most.

What are the moments that matter most to you?

Enjoy this touching video from “Mormon Messages” – the LDS Youtube Channel. You’ll find a link to more videos like it in the sidebar. My favorite part of the video starts at 2:43, but you have to see the beginning to understand why it’s so special.

Live your Best Self today

Trying something new. . . . but seriously – why does the video image have to choose such a lovely freeze?  Let me know what you think and be sure to post what living one day as the best you is like!

Take the challenge to live your best self just for one day!

Things to Consider when tackling your day:

  • Think about what your best self would look like.  How would you respond to challenges?  How would you treat others?  What things/tasks would you make sure to do?
  • Start your day with a prayer that you will be mindful of what you’re trying to accomplish with this task.
  • What’s one thing you can do during this challenge that will help you improve yourself or get closer to a goal that will help magnify your potential?
  • Record your thoughts and experiences in your journal (and here in the comments section – I want to read all about it!).

Oh, and I have a new Youtube channel for these vids.  The URL is http://www.youtube.com/user/AtypicalMormonChick
