“Check the Boys” shares a personal experience written Mary Rich Goodwin for the July 2006 Ensign (pp. 68-69). What happens in this story illustrates a principle so commonly experienced in the Church: a miracle of timing, of being in the right place at the right time, through responding to a simple prompting of the Spirit. In her case, the repeated prompting, “Check the boys,” allowed a mother to walk into her boys’ room in the middle of the night just in time to save a child’s life.
I think the story is worth pondering.
