She was faithful, but overwhelmed. So she wrote a letter to her stake president. He, in turn, read it to his counselors:
"Dear President, I want to do everything the Lord expects of me. I want to do everything the church expects of me. I decided to make a list of the things that I've been asked to do in church in the last six months. Enclosed is a copy of that list …"
One of the counselors in that Tallahassee, Fla., stake was Robert L. Millet, who is now a popular author and professor of ancient scripture at BYU. Millet told a class at BYU's Campus Education Week that the woman's list was "very forbidding" and went on for a number of pages.
At the end of the list, the woman wrote: "I have only one question. HOW?!!!!"
Instead of signing the letter "Sincerely," she signed it "Dejectedly."
