I've always felt so blessed to be a member of the The Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter-day Saints and to have a testimony of the restored gospel, much of which was founded upon the teachings of my youth. As a teenager I had the opportunity to attend an early morning scripture study program called seminary held each morning before High School. And as crazy as this might sound, I never missed a day. Not once. For 4 years.
There was even a time during my Senior year when my family decided to take a trip to Hawaii for a week which could have potentially ruined my 4 years of 100% attendance. So to keep the streak going, I made the choice to attend a seminary class every morning in Honolulu. What an awesome experience that was! But what's more awesome, is the testimony I gained of the importance of seminary and always putting the Lord first in my life.
I think that's why I was so touched by this beautiful story of my friend Sean Kimball and his dedication to the seminary program in Laguna Beach. He too had a difficult choice to make, and he choose the Lord. I hope you'll take a moment to read THIS article on lds.org and watch THIS video of his inspiring story. No regrets!
