Interesting Experience

This past week, when we were on vacation, we felt the distinct impression that we were going to

be blessed financially to be able to pay for our pills and bills. We were excited when Larry

received a call from a man named Gary just a couple of days ago, who was interested in working

for our company. He told us that he has had years of experience in the floor business doing

commercial jobs. He has a lot of contacts and was looking to partner up with a small business

and help it to grow and earn some money as well. So, Larry and I met with him in our home and

we were very hopeful that this man was sent to us as a means of blessings us financially. We sat

down together and from the very beginning, the Spirit whispered "Do not hire this man." As the

conversation continued, we were more and more impressed with him and his experience. He

told us that he randomly felt that he should call us. Again, the Spirit whispered, "don't hire

him." Then, we felt an over pouring feeling to share the gospel with him. We showed him

Thomas' large temple painting with was hanging on the wall and asked him if he had ever seen

it. He said he hadn't and that he had never heard of the Mormons or the Church of Jesus Christ

of Latter-day Saints. We were very surprized. Words just poured out of our mouths and

together we told him about the great apostasy and the restoration of the gospel, modern day

prophets and temple marriage. We invited him to go to the visitors center where he could feel

greater peace and receive more direction in his life. Then, he opened up to us and told us about

his past and his business breakup with his partner last weekend... and other problems with the

law. We realized that he was suppose to call us, but not to be hired to work for us. I know the

Lord cares about all of his children and desires to bless us with the righteous desires of our

hearts. We will continue to try to do our best and move forward as we anxiously await the

promised financial blessings to be able to pay for our pills and bills.


  1. Hi Margaret-
    I've been sitting here reading your amazing story. You are an ispiration to me... and many others. I'm anxcious to come to your son's reception and see you again. I think he might be marrying into the Stapley family that we know. I think her father's father might be Richard Stapley from Glendale, if so, we know them.

    Glad to hear that things are going in the right direction for you. The Lord is truly blessing you.
