Grat­i­tude and Con­fi­dence

Serve Daily - - NEWS - By Lyle Had­lock

I’ve been for­tu­nate enough to in­sti­gate a pro­gram that now in­volves around 100 peo­ple. The sin­gle strand that I am, has now be­come a strong cord with many strands, com­prised of all the peo­ple who have a de­sire to give back to hu­man­ity with the gifts that they’ve been blessed with.

I have learned first hand, the power of fol­low­ing through with a de­sire and stay­ing with it, un­til it’s ac­com­plished. I’m speak­ing as if the “Hope For To­mor­row” con­cert has al­ready taken place.

The se­cret for the suc­cess of this event is re­la­tion­ships. There were many times I wanted to give up on the con­cert and hope chest build­ing. I had all the per­fect ex­cuses to give up. How­ever, I con­fided in enough peo­ple about what I wanted to do, so it would make it hard to back out this time as they all en­cour­aged me and asked for pe­ri­od­i­cal up­dates on the event.

I thank Chris Baird, who kept en­cour­ag­ing and in­spir­ing me in dis­cour­ag­ing mo­ments. Brent Crane, for see­ing the vi­sion and dream I had and com­ing on board whole heart­edly. For all my mu­si­cian friends who be­lieved in me enough to share their God given tal­ents. To Rich Lewis, a master Builder, who was one of the first on board in cre­at­ing “Build For Hope” and “Hope For To­mor­row”. For Camille Brimhall, who has deep in­sight and has so un­selfishly given of her time and tal­ents for this event.

Thank you Susan Ju­lianna, Re­bekah, Paige, David and Sam for all the time you’ve given to sing with your Heav­enly voices. And Art Young, who is bril­liant and amaz­ing in tak­ing on a mu­si­cal project and mold­ing it into some­thing words have a hard time de­scrib­ing. Too many peo­ple to name, but just know I love and ap­pre­ci­ate you.

Hey read­ers of Serve Daily, as you have fol­lowed th­ese ar­ti­cles for the past three months, now come and see where they all lead to on Dec 6th at 7 P.M. in the NuSkin In­no­va­tions build­ing in Provo.
