This is a beautiful little video about our inherent need to create - whether it's something small like quilts or something even more amazing like human life, and the fulfillment that results. Doesn't that ring true? Why else would we spend time cutting something up and sewing those pieces back together, if not for the gratifying fulfillment that we feel with the end product.

Or why would we spend our time making endless amounts of food, cleaning-up bodily fluids, reading the same children's books over and over, etc., if not for the goal of creating happy, productive human beings one day?

The speech is from one of the most amazing talks specifically addressed towards women that I've ever heard, given by one of the leaders of my faith, Dieter Uchtdorf. (He's German. Don't you love the accent?)

Prepare to be inspired.

My all time favorite talk. Well next to one given by dear Joseph Wirthlin.
