The Sweet Message One Couple Heard from Their Unborn Daughter in the Temple


It was a few days before we found out that she had died. . . .

A couple of days before, everything was fine. My husband Leroy and I were sitting quietly in the celestial room holding hands when both of us were suddenly filled with the Spirit. We were happily looking forward to the arrival of our first child. I had asked Leroy to pray for us because I was feeling quite emotional. I cannot adequately express how strong the Spirit was during that sweet prayer.

At the conclusion, my husband held me close and asked me if I had heard anything. I had not. I asked what he meant; he said he’d heard a soft voice saying, “She loves you and she misses you.”
