In March of 2011, Stacie Crimm cried with joy upon learning that she was finally pregnant at the age of 41. It was a happy, miraculous moment, as doctors had previously told her that she would never be able to have a child. However, the elation was short lived. A few months into the pregnancy, Stacie began experiencing severe headaches and double vision. A medical scan revealed that she had an aggressive cancer spreading through her head and neck.

Our faith, prayers, fasting, pondering, and asking are all important tools to helping us understand the temple.
