We never know when the Lord is going to need us to serve. This article put
tears in my eyes. I have been a life long member of the church, and am so
grateful for my experiences as a Stake Missionary at the age of 77. The years
have quickly passed and even though I am now 88 years old, I can still help
anyone to understand the gospel, an inactive member or a non member, with the
Wow. This is completely relevant to my personal life experience investigating
the church and how beautiful it is to learn about this wonderful gospel. Does
anyone if there's any chance I could get in contact with her? I'm an
18 year old learning more and more about this church. Basically, in the same
situations she was in. I can definitively say Heavenly Father had this message
of inspiration for me.
Best wishes Sister Denison. You have touched many hearts today. I wish you a
great mission, along with many others.
wow stunning beauty and great story
Inspiring, thank you.
Great story! I have ties to Virginia as my favorite mission
companion and dear friend is from the DC area and my youngest son served in the
Virginia Richmond Mission just south of this one. Mark Albright and Charles
Clawson were also my former Stake President and high council speaking companion,
respectively. Wonderful men and examples to me in my life. This
young woman will no doubt touch many lives. All the best to her as she does so!
Great story! Reminds me of my journey back into the church. It's called
inspirations and promptings.
what an awesome story, thanks for sharing
Such a wonderful story! This young sister has not only changes her own life, but
the lives of her posterity. What an amazing gift.
I saw similar miracles happen in my own life as I earnestly sought to know if
the missionaries were sharing the truth. It is amazing to me how much Heavenly
Father loves us and what can happen when we are willing to act on spiritual
promptings! Woo hoo on going out to serve! I'm a Pacific
NWerner, and we need great missionaries out here. Welcome Sister Denison, and
bring rain gear!
This reminds me so much of 46 years ago when I investogated the Gospel and was
baptized. Little over a year later I, too, was on the mission field. I had left,
as a lone member in my family, but kept loving them and keeping them as if they
had been always LDS. While I was gone both of my sisters joined and my mom was
teaching Relief Society even as she was not a member. Four years later she, too,
was baptized.This 46 years have been absolutely great ... Just like YOU, I
did not seek to become a Mormon, but I culd not lie to myself and deny the
feelings of comfort and peace and the answers to my prayers.
Miracles happen every day here in Virginia! The Union Mill Ward has since moved
to the Annandale Virginia Stake and is now called the Braddock Ward. It's
a wonderful change to bless the lives of Young Adults living in the area making
that all important, and difficult, transition from youth to adulthood. Many of
those who blessed Sister Denison's life are still here, and they are a
blessing to everyone.
Wish there was a way that I could tell Sister Denison how much I appreciate her
sharing this! What a wonderful experience, made better by her willingness to
share it with us through media, and even better by her desire to serve a
mission! Thank you, Sister Denison, and best wishes to you and to your
wonderful family that raised you in such a supportive way! You're a
wonderful example to me, a member of the LDS church since birth!
This is as good as it gets. Congratulations Sister Denison. You will be a
Awesome! This sister was sincerely looking for happiness and truth. She can
use her life leasons from her own pursuit to help those whom she will server in
her own mission. Very inspiring.
