"Because He Lives" by President Russell M. Nelson
“Like those angelic messengers in the meridian of time, we also declare, ‘He is not here: for he is risen.’ He lives. And because He lives we, too, can know ‘peace in this world, and eternal life in the world to come.’”
Special guest for the upcoming Come Follow Up discussion is Jeff Olsen, a bestselling author who inspires audiences internationally with his story of perseverance and inner strength. After a horrific automobile accident took the lives of his wife and youngest son and inflicted multiple life-threatening injuries on Jeff, resulting in the amputation of his left leg, Jeff found the courage to survive over 18 surgeries, eventually healing, both physically and emotionally, and thriving in his career and community. Olsen’s incredible near-death experience as a result of the accident brings him gifts not common in today’s world.
Jeff appears on many national and international television and radio programs, sharing his insights. His latest book, Knowing, is a compilation of his earlier books with deeper insights and extended chapters. Olsen’s personal platform, Awaken to Oneness includes one-on-one mentoring and group gatherings both physically and virtually around the world.
Among Jeff’s many accomplishments, he is most fulfilled by simply being a husband, father and friend.
