Gratitude and Confidence
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. Ticket sales and proceeds from the auctioning of the Hope Chests will benefit the Provo Food and Care Coalition. Tickets are only $10 each. You can purchase them on line at www.foodandcare.org. Hope to see you there.
