And another Legacy is born.

My Grandparents joined the church nearly 100 years ago in the deep South.

Their families reacted the same way - not speaking or having anything to do with them (ostersizing).

After a few years it, they finally prayed and decided to move to Utah as well.

5 generations, and over 300 descendants later...

It all started with the "one" who listened....

I'd also like to add --
Great story, and very well written.

Mount Pleasant, UT

What a wonderful and uplifting story and what a delight this young girl is. She made the right choice and her future holds many blessings.

Had this young lady address our YM YW the other night. Even the knucklehead deacons were riveted. Could have heard a pin drop. Not a dry eye in the place.

I joined at age 18 and my parents weren't exactly pleased. That was 34 years ago. I never regretted that decision as the spirit was so strong when I joined. Good article.

This is a great story. Al made an inspired decision, and has touched many lives in doing so. How neat that it had such an impact on her sister and the "boyfriend" (now spouse) too. The story is well written, and a lovely change from much of the news we have to read.

South Jordan, Utah

Reading an uplifting article like this gives me hope that maybe one day my son will have a similar experience . . .

@Twin Lights, RE: When I got gift of the Holy Ghost. The same Greek word(pneuma) used for Holy Ghost and Holy Spirit.
Don’t you know that you yourselves are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit dwells in your midst?.(1 Cor 3:16)
What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?(1 Cor 6:19)

Pocatello, ID

Thank you for that inspiring testimony. It's so wonderful how the spirit of the Holy Ghost can make such a difference.

Beverly Hills, CA

I hope the people around her continue to fellowship her. By living her life and not being judgmental to her family, they will see the difference it makes in her life and that different points of view of faith can coexist in one family. I wish her the best.

Cottonwood Heights, UT

@JJJHS, You and I can stand on common ground. What a great story, and I also wish her the very best.


Her sister and brother in law spoke at stake conference in Rochester a year ago!


Be sure to go to her blog. The link is on page 2 of the article above. Send it out to your friends. It is very inspiring. What a mission she has created. Very special way to share.
