Happy Fourth of July! Please enjoy this beautiful Independence Day video, which Family Share has created to celebrate faith and freedom!
"Liberty and freedom mean having the choice to worship, pray and live whatever religion you believe."

"Freedom of religion is a fundamental human right that protects the conscience of all people. It allows us to think, express and act upon what we deeply believe. But around the world, and in the United States, this freedom is eroding. Churches, religious organizations and individuals face increasing restrictions as they participate in the public square, express their beliefs or serve in society. But there is much good that Church members and people of goodwill can do to preserve and strengthen religious freedom."

Read official statement by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, on Religious Freedom.

Video: Faith and Freedom

From my latest post in honor of Independence Day:

Our job, as covenant members of His Church, is to make sure that we are governed by righteous leadership, ensuring righteous principles prevail - so that individuals are able to freely exercise their God-given agency; critical to Salvation.

It is evident as we observe our current unstable conditions, that it is clearly the result of not having those in office who reverence and respect moral principles, upon which the U.S. Constitution was founded. Daily, we see evil in government. We see an overall lack of morals in society at large, which is reflected right back at us, in our governing officials. Sadly, we are responsible, as a country, for those in power.

Personally, I have a renewed commitment to more fully understand the principles upon which this great country was founded. I have a testimony that God has placed us here, specifically - to be guardians of righteousness. I'm also thankful to those who understand, with spiritual eyes, what is happening in the world today and that they are willing to speak out, regardless of cultural consequences.
