This story starts with my brother Bryan, a tough-questions seminary student.
She had had brain surgery a year and a half before.She had an indentation in her head from the surgery.I had always been taught that those miracles went away and they either don’t exist anymore, or at least never happen “on command.” And Bryan’s cutting to the chase; he’s like, “Well, I don’t see any reason why they shouldn’t.” And I knew he was right.
