Lieutenant Colonel Dusty Smith experienced this truth firsthand. A convert to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and a faithful returned missionary, Dusty was once an ambitious young law student who planned to use his skills to defend the Church. During his studies, however, he discovered anti-Mormon literature that set him on a twenty-six-year path of confusion, resentment, and active animosity. But the persistence of a good friend and a series of obvious miracles from a loving Heavenly Father eventually brought about Dusty’s astonishing reconversion. Elder Dieter F. Uchtdorf shared Dusty’s story during general conference in 2016, and now Dusty reveals the details of his journey from excommunication to rebaptism and the inspiring lessons that he learned along the way about the Church, his testimony, and his own personal relationship with God. Through his experiences, learn to recognize for yourself the love that God holds for his children and the blessings that He has planned for you.
