I love this much love, in the simple words.  Go tell my brethren that I have ascended to my Father which is your Father, my God which is your God. (John 20:17)  I think that is my favorite phrase of this clip. 

I am coming to hate, yes I said hate the commercialism of holidays.  It really hit me this holiday, my kids expect gifts, why, have we been giving them that much, too much all these years.  I don't want the easter bunny to visit.  I don't want to color eggs and hide them.  I don't want baskets full of candy.

I want the  simple understanding of what Jesus has done for us.  I want them to feel it as I do the sacrifice that was made so that we can live with our Father in heaven again and with our family.  The purpose of atonement is to correct or overcome the consequences of sin.  Jesus Christ was the only one capable of performing the magnificent Atonement because He was the only perfect man and the Only Begotten Son of God the Father.  Because of him and the choices I've made, I will live with my family eternally.

Here is another similar video with an Apostles thoughts, sometimes I'm not very articulate.  But I feel this deeply.
