A retired Kentucky nurse said that she 'met God' in a coma, and has shared her heart-warming story.
Penny Wittbrodt, 52, narrowly escaped death after going into anaphylactic shock back in 2014.
Now, she's spoken out about her experience, urging people to enjoy their time on earth.
When Penny started struggling to breathe, her son quickly rushed her to the hospital.
It was a terrifying experience, and as the dedicated mother struggled to breathe in the oxygen provided to her, she started to slip away into a coma.
As she faded out of consciousness, Penny explained that she saw a bright light and her grandmother's spirit, who told her to remain calm.
She then said that she came close to God and asked why her family had endured so much suffering.
One such thing she asked about was why her children's father left: "Watching those kids talk to him on the telephone and then go to the mailbox every day to check for a gift that he said he was going to send," were among the heart-wrenching experiences she recalled.
Still, when she 'met God' things started to shift. According to Penny, it was here that she learned the meaning of life and now urges others that: "Time here [on Earth] is so structured, and time there really gets away from you."
Penny was comforted by God's answers to her questions and heard her son's voice say, "Mum I'm going to be the dad to him that I deserved,” about his son.
Just a year later, Penny would hear her son utter those words and took great comfort in having a 'confirmation' of her experience.
Her perspective on life's hardships has now changed, as the dedicated mum explained: "We're meant to move forward, meet challenges, and share kindness."
She went on to add that before people are born they pick their parents and the traumas they face in this lifetime, adding: "I try to remind people that because before you came, you knew what traumas you were going to face."
Wittbrodt asked God if she'd be allowed to remember her experience, and what she took away from it was that "it's the hardships and struggles that bear fruit" in life.
