The Unbelievable Message God Spoke to Me When I Didn't Believe in Him

After her mother's suicide, a young Albanian girl felt God couldn't exist. However, soon she learned this experience softened her heart to Heavenly Father's love, helping her accept the gospel when she found the Church later in her life.

It was an early morning in 2008 when my mother woke me up to go to school. I was really happy that morning, but I didn’t know that it would turn into the worst day of my life or the last time I would be with her. I didn’t finish all my classes that day because a friend of our family had to pick me up and tell me that my mom had killed herself. I was only 12 years old.

I thought, “How can I live without my mother?” She was my best friend.

I cried for months. I didn’t like going to school because the other children treated me differently and felt sorry for me. I had no clue what I was supposed to do; I only knew I had to be strong for everyone else.
