Laugh It Up!
Why do we laugh? What makes you laugh? Why do some people laugh at something when others don’t? Why is it that sometimes you just can’t stop laughing? Are there situations when we shouldn’t laugh? (If you’ve ever seen anyone with milk spraying out the nose, you know very well that sometimes laughing just isn’t a very good idea!) What do the scriptures say about laughing? D&C 88:121 says we should “cease from all . . . light speeches [and] from all laughter.” But then Ecclesiastes 3:1, 4 tells us, “To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven. . . . A time to weep, and a time to laugh.” Using his own trademark sense of humor, popular speaker Andrew Horton shows us that there may be times when humor and laughter might not be appropriate. But he also points out the real physical and emotional benefits of laughter, especially when we learn to laugh at ourselves — times when laughter truly is the best medicine. So if you need an escape from the more serious side of life or if your funny bone could use a little tickling, get ready to Laugh It Up! with Andrew Horton!
