In a day and age where American exceptionalism
is generally scorned and trodden upon,
I love that Utah still loves and celebrates
the most free nation ever to be established on this great earth.
Last week, Will participated in a program called Hope of America, where dozens of schools around the state sent their 5th graders to perform, sometimes cheesy, but always inspiring, patriotic songs.
The Marriot Center was filled to the rafters.
There was a wonderful feeling of love and
enthusiasm for what we have.

Remind yourself why this country is not only great,
but divinely founded for God's purposes.
No matter who leads this country,
He is always in charge.
