After surviving a near-death experience, Jane's dreams turned to the divine. New LDS non-fiction book: VISIONS OF HEAVEN" WHAT MY NEAR-DEATH EXPERIENCE TAUGHT ME ABOUT ETERNITY." Available everywhere!!!
I just have to share this quote from Joseph F. Smith:
“Sometimes the Lord expands our vision from this point of view and this side of the veil, that we feel and seem to realize that we can look beyond the thin veil which separates us from that other sphere. . . . [And we would understand that] those who have passed beyond, can see more clearly through the veil back here to us than it is possible for us to see them from our sphere of action. I believe we move and have our being in the presence of heavenly messengers and of heavenly beings. We are not separate from them. We begin to realize more and more fully, as we become acquainted with the principles of the Gospel, as they have been revealed anew in this dispensation, that we are closely related to our kindred, to our ancestors, to our friends and associates and co-laborers who have preceded us into the spirit world. We can not forget them; we do not cease to love them; we always hold them in our hearts, in memory, and thus are associated and united to them by ties that we cannot break, that we cannot dissolve or free ourselves from. . . . And therefore, I claim that we live in their presence, they see us, they are solicitous for our welfare, they love us now more than ever. For now they see the dangers that beset us; they can comprehend better than ever before, the weaknesses that are liable to mislead us into dark and forbidden paths. They see the temptations and evils that beset us in life and the proneness of mortal beings to yield to temptation and wrong doing; hence their solicitude for us and their love for us and their desire for our well being must be greater than that which we feel for ourselves.” (Joseph F. Smith, in Conference Report, April 1916, 2–3.)
My heart, my soul, and my faith has total belief in this teaching from my LDS Church. If you read my new book, “Visions of Heaven: What My Near-Death Experience Taught Me About Eternity,” written by Jane Moe with Suzy Bills, (available EVERYWHERE May 8, 2018) you will see why I LOVE this quote.
I love you,
I LOVE our Savior, Jesus Christ. Jesus has saved me from myself, and He has lead me to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. (His true church bears His name.)
Since I joined this LDS faith, I have learned to live and love so that Jesus will be proud of me. My whole life has changed since I joined the LDS church, and I have accepted His Gospel.
I have also learned to pray in a manner that reflects Heavenly Father is my spiritual and eternal Father, and Jesus Christ is my brother, Savior, and best friend.
Now my prayers sound like I know who I am talking to. And I have to admit, this has been a learning process for me. One that I embrace, enjoy, look forward to, and depend upon. I have learned that my prayers are heard. Always. The divine answer might be, “no.” but sometimes it is, “yes”!!!! And I always know that I am talking directly to my Lord and my God because I feel him. How? From a quiet, still voice that speaks through the Holy Spirit and gives me goosebumps, chills, and tears.
And I always close with,”In the name of Jesus Christ.”
Amen. Do you have goosebumps all over? I do.
