I dropped to my knees and prayed in earnest. It happened that special feelings came for people I did not know. The thought came to create an entire month’s worth of meals for a family of four with lactose intolerance and gluten allergies, preservative free with optimal nutrient content. And I felt it important to take content from missionary guideline materials. This food would be available for anyone if my Bishop needed some help in feeding people.
I went and did as the Lord commanded and was filled with joy in this task!
Months later, when taking my cellulite for a jog around our small country town in upstate NY, I came upon a young man, 28 or so, who was obviously distraught, raking a lawn in front of a small in-need-of-repair home.
I jogged right on by and then felt an overwhelming urge and a great peace in returning to help him.
