In primary (the class I attended as child in church) we used to sing a song that started off with the words "Saturday is a special day, it's the day we get ready for Sunday." It's kind of interesting, because the song is really saying that Saturday is only a special day because it precedes Sunday, a more special day. And that's true. Sunday is the day that we strive to focus the most on God, to worship him and to refocus our lives on him and his son Jesus Christ. We strive to make it a day of rest, a day of worship, a day of renewal, a day of family.

Every Sunday I want to start sharing with you something that brings hope to my life. Whether it's a quote from a prophet or apostle, talking to you about a favorite talk from general conference, or sharing one of these amazing videos with you, it'll be something that brings joy to my life and hopefully to yours, too.

Today I want to share this video with you. It's a story told by President Gordon B. Hinckley, who was a living prophet on the earth today and the president of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints until he passed away in 2008. President Hinckley is one of my favorite people of all time. I feel like he is my old friend.

This story he tells makes me happy. The joy of service is incredible; when I serve others, I am filled with love, happiness, and satisfaction, and even hearing stories of service can bring happiness to people generations after they happen. When we learn to love and serve others, our lives are so much fuller, richer, and happier.
