My New Life

A friend of mine posted this video on her blog.
I guess I live in my own world, never really reading the news. It just makes me sad and I like to watch tv that makes me laugh.

This woman has lived through a nightmare. Yet I can't seem to get her story out of my mind. So I have decided to share it wih all of you to hope that her amazing story will impact your lives as well.

Stephanie Nielson was in a plane crash with her husband and their flight instructor. The instructor was killed, her husband had burns on 30% of his body, but she suffered burns on 80% of her body and its a miracle she is alive. She is an active LDS woman who now lives in Provo.

This video really moved me. I have thought about it and her every day since I first watched it. How grateful I am to know of her, and grateful that her trials are not mine.

I have started to follow her blog, and if you would like to after watching this video, go to or click on the button on my side bar. She is truly inspiring

Amazing how her story just gets in your head. She really makes me want to be a better mother and enjoy every minute though.

Truly inspiring. It makes you drink in the goodness in your own life and love your trials for the gift they truly are. Stephanie and her husband, and family have the faith most people will only wish to have. Hopefully someday we can all feel that.
