President Russell M. Nelson, the 17th President of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, will celebrate his 96th birthday on Wednesday, Sept. 9, 2020.

A birthday, “Is just another day for me,” he said last year while visiting Brasilia, Brazil. “I hope I will be busy.”

“Celebrating 96 years,” a new Church News video honoring President Nelson’s 96th birthday and filmed before the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic, offers a small glimpse into his fast-paced ministry and historic leadership.

“It is wonderful though to be able to look back and see the various stages of life,” said President Nelson.

“But you know I really don’t spend any time at all looking back. I did the best I could in each one of those phases. And I am just looking forward to the many challenges that lie ahead.”

The other day a family friend asked my wife, Wendy, what it has been like to have the sacrament in our home. Wendy wrote the following in response: “Knowing that our dining table will become the sacrament table on Sunday, both of us take special care on Saturday to make sure our home is clean and tidy. My husband finds such JOY as he folds the laundry and vacuums. And I am happy to find joy in his joy!

Hey husbands! President Nelson vacuums and folds the laundry. What does that tell you? ?
