face2face

I’ve been searching for interesting and uplifting things to listen to while I’m treading or eliptical-ing. Every single week while I study for gospel doctrine, I listen to the BYU discussions on the Book of Mormon and then the Mormon Interpreter listing for the weekly reading assignment. Lately I’ve added the Sisters in the Scriptures pod that Tracy reminded me about. But because I’m totally up to date on my gospel doctrine lesson extra curricular study, I wanted to find something else. Somebody suggested TJEd podcasts, another recommended The Red Headed Hostess pods. I remembered I had signed up for Connie Sokol pods, but at the last minute I thought about these amazing Face2Face interviews of famous LDS people. And I have to say, I’m a fan!

In the last 36 hours or so, I’ve listened to all five of them:

Face2Face with Elder and Sister Bednar
Face2Face with Elder Rasband, Sister Oscarson and Brother Owen
Face2Face with the Piano Guys
Face2Face with Lindsey Sterling
Face2Face with David Archuleta

Oh my gosh! I love them! They are fun, inspiring, uplifting, clean, enlarging, encouraging, and delightful.

What an amazing conglomeration of technology and inspiration! “Face to Face events present marvelous opportunities for youth from around the world to gather together electronically and participate in uplifting conversations about topics of current and relevant interest to them.” 

I was reading the purpose on Lindsey Sterling’s and David Archuletta’s pages: To increase your confidence in your self-worth and in your ability to contribute good things to the world. To be inspired to serve the Lord even when it requires a significant sacrifice.

My life is so so good right now, and I have to say that adding great things to my listening library are right at the top of the list of good things. Exercising, eating better and reading are right there, too. My only regret is that it took so long to get here. I feel like I wallowed a whole dang year away!
