Selfless Acts of Love...

I stumbled upon a beautiful video which I think clearly defines what love is, and how to find joy in family life.

I especially love the words of Elder Eyring... about joy coming from putting others welfare above our own, ending with the statement, "that is love."

Love is an act of selflessness.

It is doing what is best for others...

and it usually requires sacrifice.

Showing love for others isn't always easy to accomplish; but in the end those selfless acts of love DO BRING JOY. These small but consistent acts of putting others before ourselves make it possible for us to be families forever. :D And I think they contribute to helping the people we love to find joy, too.

I hope you enjoy the video. :) But more important... I hope you enjoy the joys that can and will come to you, as you perform small acts of selflessness for your family, friends, and even strangers.

There is a ripple effect in all that we do; what you do touches me, what I do touches you...
