Doug Tales 3: Only One That Would Believe a Ten-Year-Old

This experience of Doug Mendenhall and his daughter Denise is written on page 18 of Possibilities: Lessons From the Spirit (2002):

I remember sitting with Denise once discussing the preexistence. Though she offered very little in the way of things I wanted to know, the conversation was still interesting.

“Denise,” I asked, “why am I your dad? Did we decide that before we came here?”

“Yes, Dad, I chose you,” she said while patting my head.

“Why?” I asked.

“Because,” she said, “you were the only one that would believe a ten-year-old.”
