Create



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.

Thank you so much for your comments - they make my day! I try to respond to as many as my 'mommy' time allows, but life sometimes gets in the way. Please know how much I appreciate each of them.

I apologize for the current comment settings that require a registered user account. They are the only way that I don't get tons of gross spam. I'm hoping Blogger will make a way where people who are not registered users, but would like to leave a comment can do so. Please, Blogger! In the mean time, thanks for your patience.

I also love to respond to questions. If you are a no-reply blogger, please leave an email address so I can get back to you. Or you can email me directly: amy @ diaryofaquilter.com. Thanks!
