Say Yes!

This youth celebration was exciting, uplifting and motivating! I was so thrilled to see the church make such an effort to collaborate the talents and testimonies of our amazing youth to share with youth around the world! Since I watched a few weeks ago it has become a part of me and my family-we have downloaded all the songs and find ourselves bursting out in song and dance (and occassionally tears). ;) I had to post about it when this morning I overheard my precious Addy singing enthusiastically to herself: "If you feel like all you say is no, don't let go...o o oh, you will eat insactly what you sowt (you will reap exactly what you sow), don't let go... So we say Yes! Yes! Yes to Happiness! Yes, we're livin stronger!" ...then later... " there's a choice, a choice to be grateful a choice to gain knowledge, a choice to be clean!"

And my eyes swelled again.

I've heard some say it's cheesy... but if cheesy can bring an enlightenment of the spirit, motivation to be better, and pure sweet joy, bring on the cheese! The more I listen to it and reflect on the words, the closer I feel to Heaven. Enjoy


Go HERE to see and hear more!

Love it! I so wish that I was there...I loved the boy in the begining that they zoomed in on who was like rocking out! I'm sitting here trying to do my midterm on line but instead I'm crying like a big boob over a silly little song. Maybe now I'll say "yes" and go finish my homework! :)

Amen. Love it, Sara. I loved watching my (sometimes surly)teenager come home from the stake fireside totally pumped about the spirit he felt while watching this with other youth.

After you told me about it at Playgroup, I went home and watched it online, and I too was just bawling like a baby. Still am, after watching it again!

With all the yucky stuff out there, it so great to see youth choose the right!

I just LOVE the positive, good, energy, and happiness that radiates from this! That song just captures all that is good about the Spirit and choosing the right kind of "happiness". I love the strength of the youth who choose to live "after the manner of happiness"(2 Nephi 5:27).

By the way this is Delia. I didn't realize I was logged in under Jared's gmail account.

Very cool. It is pretty cheesy, but it's so catchy and fun. If you're going to have a song stuck in your head, why not have something good there? Thanks for sharing!

Cheesy? Yes. But look at how much fun they're having. I love it. Thanks so much for sharing. I'm headed to watch more.

Sara,
Apparently you know Tara Sheidi/Bowen who lives in our basement apartment. She worked with you at the MTC. I love the new family photos. I miss you! Are you going to come back to Provo?
