While struggling through one of the darkest moments in her life, Amelia went to her room and opened the Book of Mormon, turning to Mosiah 24: 14: "And I will also ease the burdens which are put upon your shoulders, that even you cannot feel them upon your backs, even while you are in bondage; and this will I do that ye may stand as witnesses for me hereafter, and that ye may know of a surety that I, the Lord God, do visit my people in their afflictions."
"After that happened and I had read that scripture I just felt the pure love of Christ," Amelia says in a new Church video. "It teaches me that God is there always."
