What a beautiful story of how writing our life story can make a profound impact on the lives of others. Though this family is not LDS, it's clear to see through their story why our prophets have counseled us to write our history and record our story.

A month after losing her teenage daughter in a tragic car crash, a Georgia woman rediscovered a gift that would bring her comfort she never thought she’d find again.

Macy Mathis, 16, was a girl filled with “wisdom, love, and beauty,” her mother, Cindy Mathis, wrote in a Facebook post. Mathis, along with the rest of Macy’s family and friends, was devastated when her daughter was killed in a car crash last November.

Macy’s boyfriend, 18-year-old Adam Sattler, was driving the car and was also killed, according to WALB News.

Several weeks after the accident, a grieving Mathis was cleaning out her car when she stumbled upon a letter in Macy’s handwriting that read, “Open when you can’t sleep.”
