What do YOU do to turn your life over to the Savior's will?

My Friend asked a question to our PASG group last night. We ran out of time. He attends our group by way of Skype, because of medical reasons.

After everyone has had a chance to share, at our meeting, and there is time, we open the meeting up for questions. The rules are the same as regular sharing, all comments are directed to the group (not the individual) and to speak in the I form, and not the you form,so there is no preaching allowed. That way someone can ask a question to the group, and can recieve an answer by listening to others talk about what they have personally learned in their own life. I was wondering if other groups do what we do, or are we totally off the normal grid?.

Back to Dale's question:

It is really hard for him to type, he has to use his mouth on a virtual keyboard, so allow me to thank everyone for sharing their comments in advance. I will leave my 2 cents when I have a little more time

What I try do do    
"I would try to do what the Savior would do if he were put into my shoes. Unable to change the past, with ingrained habits, and a mind full of filth unable to purge, without divine help. My divine nature suppressed with guilt, shame and remorse. Knowing and remembering the lifetime of failure to measure up to divine law.
This was me before I started the PASG program. I have learned so much from my continuing journey. Fist I learned that the more I did not want to do something , the more I needed to do it. Daily prayer, scripture study, recovery learning, church attendance, and every other thing I am supposed to be doing was contrary to my nature. If I waited until I wanted to do it, I never would. I am a firm believer that it is better to do the right things for the wrong reason than not to do them at all. FAKE IT until you MAKE IT. Still is my motto. I hope someday I will do good and abhor evil because of my love for God, instead of my fear and guilt. If I fake it long enough, blessings and a change of heart and soul will happen. I am glad that I can say now, that it is happening a little bit every day.
I believe if the Savior were put into my shoes or evaluate me in my shoes, he would find me a one talent person, ( 5 talents minus 4 talents brain and soul injury) He would want me to use that one talent and with his help plus my best efforts he would make me a two talent person and I would also be a “good and faithful servant”, which is what I want to be.
The short answer is try to do the right thing, and the will, and the ability, and the desire will come later.
Easy to say, hard to do."

"Now brethren, the time has come for any one of us who is so involved to pull himself out of the mire, to stand above this evil thing, to “look to God and live” (Alma 37:47). We do not have to view salacious magazines. We do not have to read books laden with smut. We do not have to watch television that is beneath wholesome standards. We do not have to rent movies that depict that which is filthy. We do not have to sit at the computer and play with ographic material found on the Internet."
