Beautiful! Sarah, you are a part of God's work that is so important I can feel it in my bones. Babies are one of his most precious gifts. Thanks for all you are doing to protect them! You and Brent are reminding the world of our spiritual heritage. It brings me great comfort to know we can align our hearts with our Father in Heaven through the restored gospel of Jesus Christ. I have felt the presence of heavenly messengers and leaned upon the gifts of the spirit throughout my life. I love the knowledge that we each have unique assignments and missions to fulfill that help guide each other safely home. I am so very touched by your words tonight. Love your family so much. Biggest hugs to you guys.
What destroys me is the costs involved in being able to experience these things. In the Country where I live, if I want to get involved in seeing these things or reading books written by people, I have to take the dollar price and multiply it by 17 to get the price in my local currency. Where I live this is an extraordinary amount of money. Not everyone has the privilege of transacting with the US Dollar and so I and my fellow travellers lose out.
I feel uncomfortable when people share detailed accounts of unusual sacred experiences. I am sure the General Authorities of the church have had many sacred experiences, but they do not often share the details of these experiences because they are so sacred. They do share their experiences and testimonies to strengthen us, but they don't generally speak of detailed grand visions they have had. In sharing so much detail about something that was given privately, there is also a danger of sensationalizing personal, sacred experiences. I have also been unable to accept some of the details in the many books that have become popular in bookstores around the country in the last several years regarding near death experiences. Some of them clearly contradict gospel principles. I think these accounts need to be read with caution and with the discernment of the Spirit. I have a testimony of our premortal life because the Lord has taught me this doctrine through the scriptures and the words of modern day Prophets.
What a wonderful topic and I hope to get to see it when it is finished!
Sometimes before my neices and nephews are born I would have dreams about them. They are always around age two and they look exactly how they do in my dreams when they get to that age. I always know when one of my siblings is going to announce a pregnancy.
Terrific! I look forward to seeing this.
So eager to see this, Sarah!
Just read your excellent and inspiring story. My daughter just had a still-birth at 31 weeks. It has become a very spiritual experience for the whole family. I dreamed of this baby about the time he was conceived.That being said, there is a god who is so small he can dwell in our pockets and so large, he (or it) fills the universe and we almost all worship it universally. We call it the internet.
I was very excited to read about this documentary. From the time I was a young child I have had spiritual longings and have come to realize that I was homesick for heaven.My fifth child appeared to me in the temple and let me know that he was anxious to come to Earth. I saw him wrapped in a blue shawl that I had used for each of my other children.it was a beautiful and humbling experience for me.
