I loved this talk! The story about the cow and the fence is so great because often we aren’t any smarter than that cow.
It’s good to think about what we are doing with our names. In the course of my work, I’ve met people who know different members of my family. It has been so nice to hear all of the kind things they say about them. I’ve never been embarassed to admit that I’m related. I hope my kids will grow up feeling the same way about their family legacy.
“You STUPID cow!”
Our family’s favorite line! 🙂
This talk reminded me of being a teenager and anytime before I left the house my parents would say “Remember your a Nelson, and a daughter of God, act accordingly.” It was such a great reminder that no matter where we go or what we do Satan is going to try and tempt us, but by remembering who we are and what our name represents we are prepared to face the temptations as they arise. I never wanted to do anything that would disappoint my parents or the family name. Loved the story of the cow, what a great visual representation!
