Whipped Cream and Miracles

I went to high school with Nate Sharp, who is now an LDS bishop and a professor at Texas A&M. He emailed me recently and asked if I would write something about my faith. When people ask if I will talk about a) my life and b) God, I’m like “Duh. Yes.” Writing about hard things and the things I learn from God about the hard things is my thang. The resulting  piece is featured here: http://www.aggielandmormons.org/2016/05/the-works-of-god-are-manifest-sometimes.html?m=1

    It’s so funny that you mention God speaking to you in a language you understand, which is chocolate. As I’ve often felt–more than once–that God was speaking to me through music–rock music, not hymns (to clarify.) Also, I too was hung up for a long time on Jesus healing everyone He ever came across in the New Testament, but why it doesn’t seem to happen now? Like you, I felt it was possible to heal my daughter but that it wasn’t going to happen. I even asked people I knew about Jesus healing everyone and not until I read your passage today did I know there was someone He met who He didn’t heal. For me, though my prayers were answered a while ago in the form of the word Grace and learning about the healing power of the atonement (which is what we usually think of and all want) vs. the ENABLING power of the Atonement…otherwise known as Grace. Anyway, good, good thoughts today. I love reading your posts.

    I read your article and cried. I am the mother of two special needs children. We missed church on Easter sunday because my 8 year old autistic son was upset I wanted to take a picture of him in his fancy clothes. He spent the ride to church throwing anything he could find at my husbands head. I sometimes feel when I tell people he is autistic that I just get blank looks from people and few understand the stresses of daily life. Hearing your answers to prayers helped me feel my saviors love for my family, and my special boys. It gave me a moment of peaceful reflection about our future life together

    A friend sent me a link to this article, saying it made her think of me. I have 3 kids. The first 2 have moderate and severe autism and my 3rd is possibly my most difficult child… 😉 But THANK YOU for your inspired words! I have a BIG GUSHY BROWNIE made out of my family, my ward family, school, doctors and community! My family blog is a bit neglected but I need to share more these personal/difficult moments that end in revelations of love and awareness from HF. Can’t wait to read more from you. I’m your newest stalker!
