A Missionary Unknowingly Prayed for My Deviled Eggs and Yams…And It Was Answered

By February 15, 2017 One Comment

In this video, I share an experience I had recently when I was speaking and running errands in Logan, Utah, which is about an hour from my own home. I was trying to hurry but, as is the way it goes sometimes, the Spirit kept guiding me in different directions. As I followed I became discouraged that I’d never get home in time to make yams and deviled eggs…I was hosting Thanksgiving at my house the next day (and that was totally stressing me out). But after a special prayer from a missionary I met on the road, I had the courage to continue to follow the promptings of the Spirit and when I returned home late that night, my own to-do list was made possible by a couple of very unexpected guests.

This is a longer story, for sure, but if you have the time (and if part of your heart belongs to a missionary serving somewhere) you’ll love the little details and surprising twist at the end that shows how the Lord is in the details of His work.

    Thank you so much for sharing this beautiful story! It was a tender mercy to me today! I hope and pray I can be more obedient to promptings. I have been doing a lot of pondering and praying about knowing the will of my Father in Heaven for me.
