In my junior season I needed to make a decision that was beyond my earthly capabilities. Was I going to finish out my season or have the surgery on my thumb that I so desperately needed. It was not going to injure my hand worse to continue the season but the pain was making it very difficult to play and contribute positively for my teammates. Brother J was there when I needed him most. In the middle of practice the tape job on my hand was just not cutting it. I went to Brother J in tears not knowing what I should do. I didn't want to bail on my team but felt as though I was not helping but hurting. I asked him to lay his hands on my head and give me a blessing for guidance. That day, through the power of the priesthood held by this amazingly worthy man, I was clearly instructed to end my season and have the surgery. The comfort Brother J gave to me at that moment in my life is something continues to sustain me. Knowing I can turn to my Heavenly Father with anything is a life lesson that will continue to bless my life and I thank Brother J from the bottom of my heart!
