Show Recap

Alie gives amazing advice on how to best help someone who is grieving. She shares how she overcame feeling angry at God and why this quote by Neal A. Maxwell is so important to her: “Faith in God includes faith in His timing.”

Despite their path not going as planned, Alie and her husband have opened their home to foster babies. Their philosophy is, “If you have more than you need, build a longer table, not a higher fence.” You’ll hear how Alie believes bringing foster children into their home is helping her own children learn to love and understand the gospel of Jesus Christ in action and how it helps her to gain new perspectives on motherhood.

Alie has an amazing determination to thrive despite the trials she has been given in motherhood. If you are struggling, her story will give you practical and spiritual ways to find hope and support.
