When The Rev. Brendan Powell Smith was found to be pregnant, his girlfriend Lila, being a righteous woman and not wanting to disgrace him, had planned to quietly leave him.  But as she considered this, an angel of the Lord appeared to her in a dream and said, “Do not be afraid to take Brendan as your husband, for the child who has been conceived in him is of the Holy Spirit.  He will bear a daughter and you shall name her Anna, for she will bring people favor and grace.”  As of press time, Lila was still strongly considering dumping Smith.
