I’m experimenting with ways to share Spiritually Defining Memories as defined by Elder Neil A. Andersen in his message with the same title. This is a first attempt, that I’ll probably modify, but I’ve got to start somewhere! LOL
What are Spiritually Defining Memories? According to his message, Elder Andersen explains: “Along with the peaceful direction we receive from the Holy Ghost, from time to time, God powerfully and very personally assures each of us that He knows us and loves us and that He is blessing us specifically and openly. Then, in our moments of difficulty, the Savior brings these experiences back into our mind.”
The spirit has brought this moment and others back to my mind. They’ve reminded me that I’m loved, known, and needed. These moments are treasures I want to remember.
I’m a bit self-conscious about this video, but I’m glad I’ve done it. I might add some music and definitely practice reading it a little more, but I knew I needed to at least finish it to see what I had to work with and then I could figure out from there what I might want to change. I’m excited to figure out a format and make more short videos of Spiritually Defining Memories in my life for me to remember better and to share with my posterity.
I hope this inspires you to find ways to preserve your own Spiritually Defining Memories. Remember, God loves you!
