What Is Death? [Audio]
Ben Franklin once said:
Our friend and we were invited abroad…. His chair was ready first, and he is gone before us. We could not conveniently start together; and why should you and I be grieved at this, since we are soon to follow, and know where to find him.
When a loved one departs and leaves our view, they open to heaven’s–their mortal ship sails out of the view of our horizon to a more glorious world where others awaiting them at heaven’s horizon greet them.
I hope you’ll listen to this I Believe Podcast, in which we address questions about the plan of happiness designed for us, the nature of death, and the life beyond. Death is the ‘birthday of eternal life.’ In this video episode, What Is Death?, you’ll hear what the Lord says about the nature of our spirits, our bodies, our future bodies, our future glory, and life immediately after we die. This cast offers hope and answers to those wondering if they have death to fear, fret about, or faithfully look forward to as the doorway to life and a return to our heavenly home.

Living out a great season of my life, thanks to Jesus Christ, and two wonderful daughters, a great life's work. Loving this opportunity to share faith online... I'm a single Mom, convert to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, second-gen Italian, from the East coast originally. Love the fine arts, dance, frozen yogurt, temples, scriptures, writing, jazz, helping others reach their potential, king salmon, ....and not in that order. God is good. I feel it deeply when people have a misconception of Heavenly Father or Jesus Christ, His Son, that lessens or cheapens Them and blinds one's ability to feel His presence or to trust in an ultimately good eternal end to life's circumstances.
