For those of you who have asked for information,
"Footprints of Faith"
will air at 1:30 pm MST,
just prior to the second session of LDS General Conference.
There will be 3 stories featured in the program.
We were told that Bronson's story will be the middle segment.
.
Post Script-
In reply to some of the questions and comments left in response to this post,
I am not aware of a link to view the "Footprints of Faith" program online.
However, KSL has announced that it will re-air on Sunday, May 2.
I am not sure what time.

Oh that's great! I just stopped by before I fell asleep and I am so happy I did. I wasn't sure when it would air and I hoped I hadn't already missed it.

Oh, and by the way...I thought it was so cute/funny that you and your sweet hubby invited our family over for breakfast on Easter morning *on accident* I am sure we will hold you to it another time :)

This was a beautiful and uplifting segment! I just caught it and although I have been following the story fromt the beginning, it still touches my heart. What a great blessing that your son is here with you. Thank you for sharing your testimony and story as it has helped to build my faith in Christ.

I watched conference online and was hoping it would be on there, but I missed it. If you have a link, I would love to view it!

You and your family are amazing and a great example of Christ. All the opposition you have been receiving is only more of a testament of that! Keep holding your head high!

Even though I have followed your story from the beginning, and have watched every news and video you have done, I cried just as much watching this as I have the others!
Your family has such a spirit about them and I feel that spirit every time I watch or read about you!
I am so thankful that you have continued to share your story! I truly believe that what happened to Bronson was SUPPOSED to happen!
You have touched so many people around the world and who knows how many people you have, and will save, from this exact thing happening to them!
Please don't let the negative comments get to you! The number of people who stand behind you definitely out numbers the few people who don't!
Thank you for changing me as a mother for the better!

I too am thankful for your blog and the spirit with which it is written and shared with all of us. Your testimony is felt and heard here, thank you for that. You truly are an inspiration. I just read your "Leftovers" blog and am wondering if you would allow me to use it in a Relief Society lesson I would like to give? I would appreciate sharing it in your own words as they are so poignant and touching. I can be reached at deanna123calvin@hotmail.com

Just wanted to apologize for interrupting your dinner last night at the Pizza Factory. It was probably rude of me but I have followed your blog and your story and loved watching it again Sunday during the conference break. I was so surprised to actually see you sitting in a restaurant in St. George so I had to come and tell you personally how much I appreciate you staring your story with others. You will never understand the the impact you have made. I just wanted to see the little miracle with my own eyes. You have such a beautiful family. Please forgive me if you thought I was out of place.

I just stumbled upon your blog today after reading an article about Branson on MSN.com. The first thing I thought of when I read his story was...Thank the Lord for his infinite mercy and grace and for sending a miricle to save Branson's life. Praise God that we serve a RISEN Savior, Jesus Christ! So often in today's world we forget about all the miracles Jesus performed back in bible times, but he is still ALIVE and living today ready to help us when we need Him. What a testimony to others! We will continue to pray for the recovery of Branson.

Hi...I have been so moved by your story after hearing about it on Meridian Magazine...I read your blog and was very touched by that. I saw this post after conference but when I went to the byutv website I could not find this program in their programming so that I could see it. Could you please let me know how I can watch it? Thank you so much for taking your time to answer me!

Mom said...

The Carlston family was all there to watch the segment on TV Sunday. I thought it was well done and emphasized all the talks we had heard at Conference on having faith, miracles, and knowing there is a Christ that lives today. Thanks for your example to the world. You have all handled the exposure with grace and a deep testimony. Love you guys!

TARA WARTHEN MADSEN said...

Sara - I, too, unfortunately missed the segment. Any chance you could put a link on your blog?

Amy said...

Saw this on the today show and thought you guys might want to read/watch. http://today.msnbc.msn.com/id/36190954/ns/today-today_people/

I, too, am looking for a link! I would love to see it!

Tracy~

I could not find another way to respond to you from your blogger profile, so I am leaving a message for you here in hopes that you may find it...

Please, PLEASE do not worry about approaching us at the Pizza Factory the other night. We did not feel that you "interrupted our dinner" at all. We absolutely appreciated your words of kindness and support. We did not feel that you were "rude" or in any way inappropriate. We are just real people and are never bothered by the opportunity to meet a new friend. I am obviously an open person and am not shy or intimidated by strangers. In fact, I don't believe there is such a thing... We are all brothers and sisters in spirit and knew each other well and loved each other much before this life, even if we do not remember it...

So in fact, I am grateful that you left a blog comment because it gives me the chance to tell YOU that I AM sorry that I did not take more time to talk to YOU! It was just a wild, crazy dinner with all four of my restless boys and three of my little siblings... quite a handful at our table! So sorry if I seemed frazzled!

And if it seemed to catch me off guard at all, it was just that the timing was... well... sort of funny to us! Just prior to you approaching and introducing yourself, we'd had a conversation with my parents about that very thing. They were asking if I've been recognized in public and I was telling them, surprisingly, yes and how strange it is to me. They had JUST told me that it probably wouldn't happen this week since we were out of town and then you walked up and said hello. HA! So if we were shooting glances around the table, that was why!

But please, PLEASE don't apologize. It is true that I am sometimes still taken aback by all of the momentum Bronson's story has gathered. There are just so many who have followed our blog or are now aware of it. We could never, ever have forseen that at the time! We thought we were keeping a personal record that our family, friends and neighbors could turn to for updates. We never could or would have imagined how many people would come across it or become interested. But after coming home we actually made a conscious decision as a family to remain open and honest about our experience. This has been in an effort to help raise whatever awareness we could, DESPITE the notoriety and disrepute we knew we would bring upon ourselves by doing so. There are some who have seen this as a negative thing... As us trying to get attention or exploit the circumstances of Bronson's recovery. We knew this would probably be misunderstood by some, but felt that the possible benefits outweighed the probable risks. If we could help just one mother to understand the possible danger of allowing herself to become distracted and encourage her to be a little more focused... If just one family could be a little more diligent after hearing our story... If one parent could avoid the same mistake, or one like it... Or one more family could become more fully committed... Or more faithful... Or feel even a portion of the spirit we have felt... Well, then THAT would be worth a few daggers, wouldn't it? Because surely, like all things, they too will pass.

But it is the good people like YOU who help to remind us why we chose to do so. We have promised ourselves to try our hardest to NOT be motivated by what anyone else says to or even about us... Be it good or bad. But expressions of love, kindness and support are always welcome. Even more so are the statements of faith and increased commitment. We can all use a little more of both along our path can't we? I wish everyone felt comfortable, confident and uninhibited enough to compliment and encourage others more openly. As the sweet Sister Camilla Kimball taught us so perfectly, we should "Never suppress a kind or a generous impulse." I love that... Just love it!

So keep saying kind words Tracy. Even if they are in the middle of someone's family dinner! I am sure they will always be welcomed! Goodness and love should always be shared. Any time! They have no bounds of propriety!

Warmly~
Sara & Matt

I hope you will update us on Bronson and your whole family! An idea...what if you removed the comment feature? That way people can read and enjoy what you share still. Your story is so important and I have personally gained so much from it.

Thank you!

Jen said...

Your family truly is an inspiration to us all. Thank you for sharing with openess, authenticity and with out fear. You have given much to those of us who "happened" upon your blog for one reason or another. Keep doing what your doing, you are making a difference in the world that I truly believe you won't understand until you have moved on to the next life. Then you will see how much you served and gave us all.
