Liz Lemon Swindle: "One of the Greatest Things God Did Was Let Me Be Sick as I Painted the Atonement"


In this powerful video created by Seth Adam Smith, LDS artist Liz Lemon Swindle shares how becoming terribly ill while painting Jesus Christ's suffering in Gethsemane deepened her understanding of our Heavenly Father and Savior's love. In addition, she recounts a discussion she had with Elder Neal A. Maxwell, who was then diagnosed with cancer, that changed her understanding of the Atonement.
