You GO Hank Smith From Utah!!

We all love inspirational stuff - we, as L.D.S. people also love for our children to learn how to look inward, and behave in a manner that would be pleasing to the Lord.  Well, Hank Smith is a E.F.Y. speaker, a seminary teacher, an RM, and many other things.  He's also very funny and has put out several CD's with his talks.

The talks are mainly meant for teens and youth - we originally got them for Kennedy, but decided that we would listen to them with all of the kids around. Darrell, it turns out, LOVES Hank Smith and his talks.  He has 2 of the CD's memorized at this point.  So, naturally, when Hank was coming to Celebrating Sisterhood at Rick's store, we decided that we would take the kids down there to meet him. 

It was a GREAT Experience - Darrell was simply enthralled with Hank.  Darrell even Quoted Hank's own CD to him.  As we were leaving Darrell said "Mom! He's just so AWESOME!!" - I would have to agree with Darrell on that one.  Hank Smith is - well - SO AWESOME.  And though he may never read it, I would tell him Thank You for having these great, inspiring talks for Youth.  I would also recommend that if you have teens, or even Tweens - these cd's and talks are Fantastic!!

If you want to ever look them up - they are:
Be Who You Are (His most recent one)
Thou Shalt Be Nice
Real Life

He has 2 more coming out between now and February of next year - we can't wait!
