Beatrice T. shares her thoughts on this topic:

I am so grateful to know that my Heavenly Father is truly the father of my spirit and that I lived with Him and was loved before I ever left my heavenly home to come to earth. I’m grateful for this opportunity He has given me to come to earth to learn to be obedient to His commandments and to love and serve others.
