Does tragedy bring you closer to God or push you away from Him? Elizabeth Smart was kidnapped and was repeatedly sexually abused by a horrible man. She went on to serve as a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (Mormons). She will start working for ABC news as early as next week. Others who have experienced such horrific things turn angry against God and question His existence and ask how He can allow such things to happen.
Can we choose how we respond to tragedy? Can we choose to take the negative experience and turn to God for support, or choose to turn against God in anger?
