A Young Man Named Logan

By Cindy Beck

Some of you may have heard about a young man named Logan Henderson, who called into a radio talk show to share an experience he'd had. Although I don't believe he's a writer, or that he's LDS, I do believe he's a young man of great faith and spiritual understanding.

As LDS writers we work toward those qualities ... we know they'll improve our writings. What we sometimes forget is how much they also improve our ability to cope with the sting of rejection and how they help us move forward when, like Logan, we don't understand the whys of life.

I love this video. I've seen it before but every time I see it or listen to it, I'm amazed by the kind of truth such a young man already knows. Thank you for sharing it.

I agree. It just blows me away that a thirteen-year-old boy came up with those thoughts. If you think about it, though, it shows what some young boys are capable of, and is a testament to Joseph Smith's first vision, since he was just a year older.
