Family on TV: My Dad and Step-Mom - the Shackelfords

A few weeks ago, my dad called me all excited saying "We're going to be on TV!" 
KSL, a news channel in Utah, has a segment called "Mormon Times" which aires on TV each Sunday. They interviewed my dad and step-mother, Barbara, along with a young man who has been taking dictation for my dad over the course of the last year. Dad's a quadriplegic, and can't write down his own story really, so that's where Brandon comes in. He's typed up everything and sent it to me in a file to sort through and edit into a book. My dad and Barbara hope to publish their story to help inspire others sometime in the next while.
I thought it was really nice to see my dad and Barbara on the show, and I'm really glad they had the opportunity! I've embedded their video below, but if you can't see it, click here to go to the video on YouTube.
