Mapleton youth wins Arbor Day tree poster contest

r By Colt Sampson

SPANISH FORK  — This past year has been a true test of the heart. There are some things that just can’t be found in the handbook of life and must be lived and learned through our own experience. As we seek to understand why some things happen, we usually find more questions. This is one of life’s greatest riddles.

The question we can all ask ourselves is, “can I find good in the face of adversity?”rThere is good in all of us and we need to hold to this perspective. Doing good is the only thing constant that we can truly count on.

After losing our son Levi last year a week before his 3rd birthday, our entire world seemed to crumble. Nothing made sense. There was chaos, heartache and misery at every corner. The defining moment came the morning after we had lost him. My wife and I were sitting in our bedroom watching the sunrise after a sleepless night. As we stared at the sunbeams of first light, it was very clear to us that this experience had the power to destroy everything good in our life. The only thing standing between us and miserable torment was the power of choice. We could choose to see the good or choose to see our life unravel.

Our family, our friends, and our community have been the reason we have been able to make it through this first year. We would like to express our gratitude for every prayer, every kind word, and every embrace we have received from so many. You have loved us when we have needed it most and you have inspired us to “Do Good” in the midst of our greatest trial. Thank you for helping us Live for Levi!
