Stephanie Neilson of the NieNie Dialogues - Saturday Keynote #2

Saturday is the third and last day of the RootsTech 2014 Conference.

The second Keynote speaker on Saturday was Stephanie Nielson, who suffered the results of a plane crash that burned her over 80% of her body in 2008.  Here's a photo of Stephanie at the podium:

What a beautiful and strong person she is!  Her talk was the story of her recovery and resuming her life as a wife, a mother of four children, and a noted blogger.  They had another child two years ago, and showed a video of Stephanie loving her baby. 

Stephanie has written a book Heaven is Here.  She was interviewed by several media people in the Media Center, and signed her book for many other people. 

She told us that "It's how we deal with hard times that matters," and "Everyone has a story that needs to be told."

This presentation were inspiring and heartwarming - please watch the RootsTech video when it is available.
