All Mixer-ed Up

All Mixer-ed Up

This month, all the Miracle Mondays are testimonies from the workplace. Today's job-related miracle is from Sister Kathie Perkins.

As part of my job as an elementary school music teacher, I was responsible for presenting programs involving hundreds of kids to a very large audience. The program always required the use of some type of PA system.

Over the years, the technology at our school advanced to the point where I had less and less control over the system, and eventually the media specialist had to set up all the microphones and speakers during the daytime for me so that, at the appointed time for the evening program, I could just turn the system on and everything would work.

At least, that was the plan.

No Bones About It

No Bones About It

Today's Miracle Monday was submitted by Brother Jordan Champine for May's theme on anointing with oil. We hope you feel as blessed as we did when we got to the end and read a 7-year-old boy's simple words — the only logical conclusion to an undeniable miracle like this one.

When I was a young boy, around 7 years old, I went out to eat at a restaurant with my family as we tended to do on Friday nights. My parents had just found the Gospel a few years prior, so we took extra time and pride in joining hands and saying our dinner prayers in our booth. Little did we know what would soon follow.

Scratched Names

Scratched Names

For today's Miracle Monday, we're sharing a military-related experience — remember that theme from May 2014? The late Brother Dick Ackman experienced this miracle, and his grandson, Brother Rich Nath, submitted it.

In early 1952, my grandpa was on leave from the army and had received orders to return to camp. He knew what that meant — he was being shipped to Korea.

There was a significant chance that if he ended up in the warzone he would not return home, as those trained for his duties had a very high casualty rate. The night before he was scheduled to return to base, he had the following experience that he related many times before he passed away. The following excerpt is from his autobiography.

Miraculous Moo-lah

As you know, each month, we introduce a different theme for Miracle Monday. Occasionally, a theme is super popular, and we get a lot of submissions — so many that we can't use them all before the month ends.

What do we do with the extra stories? We save them in hopes that we can share them at a later date. Guess what? That "later date" is now! We're dedicating each Monday during August to publishing beautiful experiences that we've been hanging onto.

Today, we're sharing two stories that Sister Debbie Kyriakakos and Sister Florence Perri sent to us for the money-related Miracle Mondays in November 2014. Enjoy!

Best of Miracle Monday: Miracle of the Stolen Books

Best of Miracle Monday: Miracle of the Stolen Books

For today's Best of Miracle Monday, we're republishing "Miracle of the Stolen Books" from November 5, 2012 submitted by Brother Stephen Kyriakakos.

On January 29, 2012, I went out to my car to go to work. I noticed the driver's side door was open and several items were stolen. Among the missing items were my grandfather Rudy Meo's leather bookcase with his Bible and Book of Mormon inside (pictured here).

This devastated me because he had just passed away a year earlier. For a week, I was torn up at the loss of these books because they were one of only two things given to me that belonged to him — and they were just gone.

Best of Miracle Monday: I Never Heard a Sweeter Song

Best of Miracle Monday: I Never Heard a Sweeter Song

For today's Best of Miracle Monday, we're republishing "I Never Heard a Sweeter Song" from May 7, 2012 submitted by Sister Mandy Griffith.

When our first son, Wesley, was born, he was four weeks premature. As new parents, we naturally had many concerns, but the day after his birth, when his condition was stabilized, we had family come to visit.

As everyone gathered around to see the baby, the gift of tongues came forth, and the interpretation was, "My gift to you, thus saith the Lord." We were so blessed to receive that expression of God's love; it truly comforted us, and we felt reassured that all would be well with our son.

Best of Miracle Monday: Before They Call, I Will Answer

Written by Brother Frank Natoli on Monday, 13 July 2015. Posted in Miracles Hits 749

Best of Miracle Monday: Before They Call, I Will Answer

For today's "Best of Miracle Monday," we're republishing "Before They Call, I Will Answer" from April 16, 2012 submitted by Brother Frank Natoli.

As a newly ordained elder in The Church of Jesus Christ, I was instructed to always carry a small bottle of blessed oil with me, in case someone contacted me and asked to be anointed (James 5:14-16).

One morning, I awoke, got ready for work, ate my breakfast, and got in my car to go to work. Before I walked out the door, I touched the outside of pants to feel for my little bottle of oil, but it wasn't there. I had forgotten it, so I went back to my room, placed it in my pants pocket and left for work.

Best of Miracle Monday: The Lost Lens Miracle

Best of Miracle Monday: The Lost Lens Miracle

Today, we're kicking off the "Best of Miracle Monday" series. We're digging back in our archives for special experiences that we shared in the blog's early days so that those of you who weren't with us back then can experience them. Today, we're republishing "The Lost Lens Miracle" from April 2, 2012 submitted by Sister Melanie Suska.

One winter day in school, when I was around 10 years old, the bell rang at the end of the day, and I rushed outside to get to my mom's car.

Nothing to Fear

Nothing to Fear

Today, we're wrapping up the month with two beautiful anointing-related testimonies.

Submitted by Sister Rosanne Champine

In 2011, I discovered — and my doctor confirmed — a large tumor in my body. I was facing further tests, which caused me great concern. On a Sunday morning, I went before the ministry of the branch to be anointed. That day, a sister shared the following vision:

The Healing Power of Holy Oil

The Healing Power of Holy Oil

Today, we're bringing you two Miracle Monday experiences that display the power of anointing. Enjoy!

Submitted by Brother Fred Bartuccio

As a young boy of about 8 or 9 years old, I used to get tonsillitis very often, so much so that I was scheduled for surgery. The surgery date had been set and canceled a few times because every time it was set, my tonsils would become infected, and they couldn't proceed.

I Can't Find Anything

Written by Sister Carmela Gray on Monday, 15 June 2015. Posted in Miracles Hits 1049

I Can't Find Anything

Just a reminder, this month's Miracle Monday theme is "anointing with oil." We hope this testimony by Sister Carmela Gray encourages you and increases your faith in God's healing power.

This account happened some 15 years ago or so. I had a mammogram on a Monday. Tuesday evening, I got a call from my doctor saying something showed up on the film, and he made an appointment for a biopsy on Thursday morning. He was very concerned.

Nothing to Shrug At

Nothing to Shrug At

We're continuing our June theme for Miracle Monday: anointing miracles. Today, we're sharing a testimony submitted by Sister Brianne Gehly.

The current job the Lord provided for me (see this blog article for the details) is a very physical job for a "short" woman. Although I may be a little on the short side, I consider myself a healthy and strong person, and I rarely get injured. My daily physical skills include cranking an X-ray machine into the back of a Chevy HHR, lifting heavy patients regularly, holding open doors while pushing and pulling heavy equipment, and dodging elderly people in wheelchairs.

Hey, It Works

Written by Brother Jerry Valenti on Monday, 01 June 2015. Posted in Miracles Hits 1238

Hey, It Works

Today is our first anointing-related Miracle Monday, and Brother Jerry Valenti submitted this testimony about the first time he ever anointed someone. Enjoy!

I was ordained into the ministry on September 7, 1986. The following weekend was our Area MBA Campout, which my wife Pat and I were planning to attend.

However, Pat had her four wisdom teeth extracted that Tuesday (at 9 a.m. — the receptionist said she was waiting all day to assign that appointment on 9/9 at 9!). Unfortunately, her recovery did not go as expected the next few days.

Bread of Heaven

Bread of Heaven

Today is our last communion-related Miracle Monday. A big thank you to Sister Dianne Maddox for sharing this one.

A few months ago on a Sunday morning at our branch in Lake Worth, Florida, another deaconess and I were confused over whose turn it was to bring the bread for communion that day. Neither of us had brought it.

As we stood in the kitchen of the church building, we looked at each other in panic and disbelief. The communion table was supposed to be set within the next 15 minutes. Within a few moments, a brother came into the kitchen and asked us what was wrong. We explained the situation.

Kasey the Kinderbot

Written by Brother Jerry Valenti on Tuesday, 19 May 2015. Posted in Miracles Hits 1088

Kasey the Kinderbot

My daughter Maria has a best friend — her toy robot Kasey the Kinderbot. Many a night in our house is filled with Kasey's beeps and boops and the sound of Maria singing along with Kasey.

I should point out that Maria is autistic and also mentally challenged, so even though she is now a teenager, she is very much like a child, and she still enjoys many of the same toys she's had since she was a small child, many of which — like Kasey — are no longer even sold in stores.

In the summer, Maria's favorite thing to do is to go in our swimming pool. She loves it so much that we have to remember to keep the back door locked or else she'll run outside and jump in the pool, clothes and all. One day last summer, we forgot to lock the door, and when I saw the door standing open, I knew where I would find Maria.
