Scott Mitchell gets personal with this story about his father's end of life struggles. The retired NFL quarterback recalls what it was like to pray for his dad's suffering to end and to receive guidance from heaven about the situation. The elder Mitchell recovered from that close call, only to face health struggles again later, and Scott wanted to know, what was the point? Eventually, the former Utah football standout remembers telling his father dying was like being a caterpillar - the process is hard but on the other side, you get to be a butterfly. Those words came back to inspire Scott later to keep going as a contestant on the Biggest Loser.
