Having grown up around the Olympics and with many Olympic athletes as friends, coaches, mentors and associates, I have seen and felt the power that the Games bring into this world. And it is a wonderful thing.
Baron Pierre de Coubertin, the founder of the modern Olympic movement, once noted that the Games are a celebration of the “springtime of humanity.” Every four years (or one "Olympiad") the world comes together in a renewal of hope and dreams to watch our best compete in an athletic spectacle that has no rival, one that is designed to promote one universal goal: peace.
Like you, I have my favorite moments from past Games, from watching these "heroes and gods" compete in cities like Los Angeles, Calgary, Lillehammer, Atlanta, and Sydney. The Games became much more personal when, after beginning bobsled in 1996, I watched friends and associates compete in Nagano, Salt Lake City, Beijing, Vancouver and London. As I let the wonderful spirit of the Games influence my life, I found myself aiming higher, dreaming bigger and hoping more.
With those thoughts in mind, here are (in my opinion) 10 Reasons Why We Love the Games
Like so many Americans I spent this past Sunday, June 16, surrounded by my amazing family, especially the man honored on Father's Day, our Dad (who if you have met him looks like George Bush, Jr.). Now I have to tell you, my family jokingly quips that we are the only functionally-dysfunctional family you'll ever meet. In fact, we often say that we put the FUN in dysfunctional.
Joking aside, I love my family. From my two wonderful parents to my three siblings, plus a wide assortment of cousins, grandparents, aunts, uncles, but as I sat there yesterday thinking how blessed I am I realized that my "family" consists of so much more than bloodlines. There are my incredible bobsled teammates who have meant so much to me on and off the ice. There are classmates who got me through junior high, high school and college. There are the friends who have become as close to me as any blood relative. There are coaches, trainers, church leaders, teachers, neighbors and the list goes on and on.
As an American bobsled competitor and returned missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, beloved speaker Jeremy C. Holm understands what it takes to serve as a Champion of the Lord in His service.
In this inspiring and motivating audio fireside talk, Jeremy utilizes his on-ice experiences and insights from the scriptures to coach future missionaries on how they can confidently reach their highest potential through obedience, study, service, faith, humility, and continual effort.
“The youth of the Church constantly amaze me with their spiritual insights and the strength of their testimonies. The Lord truly has held some of his most powerful champions in reserve to come forth in this time to take His work forward. Their hearts are willing, their spirits are ready. This audio fireside is designed to take their mission preparations to the next level and ‘raise the bar’ in all aspects of their labors.
“In many ways, preparing for a mission requires more discipline than a bobsled competition. Youth today need to have rock-solid testimonies, understand the doctrine and know how to follow the Spirit’s guidance in order to be effective in the Lord’s work.
"The phrase 'Etiam si omnes, ego non' comes from the scripture Mathew 26:33 where Peter declares, 'Though all men shall be offended because of thee, yet will I never be offended.' It means that we will stand as witness of Christ in all time and in all places.
"The Lord requires is a willing heart and mind. Young men and women who want to serve as champions of the Lord will have to dig deep and rely on faith to teach with power. This audio talk is designed to give them the tools and foundations necessary to develop their divine potential as missionaries and to inspire them to a deeper faith."
