I’m not sure how long I stayed there. I’m pretty sure people were yelling at me to get up. It felt like hours but was probably only a minute or two. Suddenly, there were hands on my arms, lifting me up, and a kind voice saying, “Trish, you’re okay, go ahead and finish, you’re almost there.”
Then came the sweet merciful impression that my mortal and fallen body, [my vessel] that experienced the great depths of depression, was also NOT designed to fail. I was designed and created in the image of God and my body was meant to successfully take my own soul to the promised land of God’s salvation and exaltation.
By Pam Young – My Heavenly Father has given me a very special gift. I know that He knew that I would need it. I have always known my Heavenly Father loves me and that my Savior is by my side always. I have never doubted this gift. I want to share 3 experiences I have had that have confirmed this gift.
I turned and saw the beauty of the sun setting (as pictured). It took my breath away and brought tears to my eyes. I suddenly felt so grateful for the traffic that made the timing so perfect to witness such beauty. If there would have been no delays or obstacles getting there, I would have missed it.

It is in our moments, days, weeks, and perhaps lifetimes of struggle, sorrow, pain, and other types of adversity, that as we seek him most diligently in quiet moments of desperation, we come to know that He is indeed listening.

I love how throughout the scriptures we are taught through common everyday things. Things, up until about a hundred years ago, most people could relate daily to…..baking, farming, sowing seeds, fishing. This year, Heavenly Father has taught me through something common….sourdough bread.
