“In the struggles of mortality, we are never left alone to accomplish our work, to fight our battles, to face adversity or unanswered questions.” —Carol F. McConkie
After Jill Thomas lost her daughter Penny in a tragic accident, her world seemed to crumble. Her husband was having a crisis of faith in God, her little girl was gone, and hope seemed all but vanished.
“I felt nothing. I believed that the ‘answers’ to read your scriptures, say your prayers, and go to church were inspired and true. Yet I was doing those things—I was doing those things very earnestly—and I was feeling nothing. I had a sense that a critical aspect of spirituality was missing, but I didn’t know how to be inspired or guided anymore. I was lost.”
Join Jill in the Hope Works presentation below as she explores the creative thought process that taught her to have faith, hope, and joy even in the midst of her suffering.
