My testimony has been strengthened

On Friday, June 27th, the brother of one of Ryan's old friends (Rachel Mellor) had a baby boy who was still born. I was extremely saddened when I saw this on her blog. I don't even know her brother and sister in law, but felt so terrible for them. I've thought a lot about this since that time. I haven't really questioned why and that has kind of surprised me. I've actually felt a great sense of peace. This little baby and his parents have taught me so much. My testimony of the gospel of Jesus Christ and the Plan of Salvation has grown and been strengthened so much, and like I said I don't even know them. This is something that I can't even imagine going through, but I know that the gospel is true and that my Heavenly Father loves me. We are all children of God and he has a plan for each of us. His aunt had a very beautiful post on her blog about this that I think is worth any one's time to read.

That is so heartbreaking! This happened to Tamara and David a few years ago and it was just devastating, we'll keep them in our prayers.

Thanks for sharing Christa. It strengthens my testimony to read and hear others. I'll pray that they will feel comforted. I can't imagine the pain!!!

What a beautiful tribute! It reminds me so much of my dear friends (more like family) Ryan and Angie. They had a beautiful slideshow of little Hattie and as hard as it was to watch it was amazingly spiritual. When I watched this slideshow this morning my heart was full and my tears flowed freely. This little family will be in my prayers. Thank you for sharing!

I was also crying over this earlier today. What an amazing testimony of the gospel this family has. It was not really smart of me to read it today because that is one of my fears and a trial I don't know if I could handle. How great it is that they have the gospel in their lives, knowing that with the plan of salvation this isn't an end to their relationship with their baby would make it a little easier to get through than if they didn't have that knowledge.
