LILY Letter 161: Building a Beautiful Life

May 16, 2024

In our latest podcast episode on LILY Pod, we explore the profound journey of building a beautiful life, a path that is uniquely tailored to each individual. We discuss how the reality of our lives often unfolds differently from our initial dreams and plans, and we encourage our listeners to welcome the unexpected blessings that life presents. Throughout our conversation, we emphasize the idea that a beautiful life is not a one-size-fits-all scenario but rather a personal masterpiece that each of us has the power to craft. By embracing the role of an "active creator" in our lives, we invite everyone to seize the opportunity to design their personal narratives, demonstrating that a beautiful life is within reach for all, regardless of one's past or present circumstances.

We also delve into the spiritual dimensions of creating a fulfilling life, highlighting how our connection with the divine profoundly enhances our ability to experience joy and fulfillment. We discuss the vital role of our Savior as a bridge to our heavenly parents, which not only fosters our spiritual growth but also empowers us to love more wholeheartedly. This connection underscores the importance of nurturing our relationships—both divine and earthly—as central elements that enrich the tapestry of our lives. We encourage our listeners to deepen these connections with genuine care and commitment.

We invite you to explore our website: where we have an abundance of resources available as we explore themes of love and personal growth in the later years. Whether you're navigating a new chapter in life or seeking deeper spiritual connections, our new podcast provides valuable insights into finding balance and embracing the beauty of life's journey. Listen to LILY Pod 159. Balance, Bridges, and Building a Beautiful Life.

For additional enrichment, listen to Gary E. Stevenson's talk on Bridging the Two Great Commandments and watch Love at Last with Dan & Emily, an inspiring depth of love and commitment in a later married couple who despite serious setbacks, chose to build a beautiful life together anyway.

This month we celebrate our 6th anniversary of marriage (5/11/18) and our 3rd anniversary of podcasting (5/5/21). As part of the celebrations, we decided to give LILY Pod a new look! Celebrate with us by listening to an episode that sounds intriguing - we have more than 160 to choose from.

Cheers to intentionally building a beautiful life!

Love, Jeff & Cathy Teichert
