Bad Day, Great Life

Brother Richards fireside “Bad Day, Great Life!” is an exceptional talk about choosing the good even when you have hard times in your life. He draws from his personal experiences that make his message relatable and easy to understand. During his talk Brother Richards includes funny and entertaining examples but always ties it in with his spiritual message and invites the Spirit with touching words that struck a cord with me.
I enjoyed listening to every minute of this talk! The time went by so fast because I was so taken with his message. I recommend this talk not just to youth who are struggling but to all of my friends and family. I feel that anyone listening could take a personal message away; after all, every one of us at some point has trials and feelings of hopelessness. Brother Richards makes it easy to see that even during the times of struggle and wanting to give up we have a choice to see the positive and know that our Heavenly Father and Savior love us.
His departing invitation to ask ourselves, “How can my suffering become a blessing?” has helped me tremendously.
I’m striving to see the good in all my various situations which has now led to greater happiness in my own life.

I really loved this whole CD recording! I loved the way Eric D Richards speaks, he's easy to listen to and he uses amazing stories to get his points across. It's very easy to see why he's a popular EFY speaker. I know that our youth loved him a few years ago when he was the speaker at her session.
I loved his honesty, telling the kids that he himself has had some of the same struggles that they have and how he's risen above those struggles to become the person he is today. I was especially touched by the story of how he and his mom came to join the Church.
This is a great CD for the youth of the Church to listen too...I know that I'm way older than a youth, but I loved it as well and I can't wait for more from Eric D Richards!
