Just wanted to express my gratitude for all I've been blessed with over the past year. Addiction is a funny is so hard regarding many aspects, yet without it I would not be where I am at today with a testimony of the Atonement and the power it can has to heal our lives. I have faith that our Savior stands by me each day, through the good and bad. He has lifted me out of the dumps to higher ground and saved me. He has made me whole again.


I'm grateful too    
"I'm grateful to read such positive words. Sometimes we get stuck in the muck of it all & we forget the healing process that we are going through.
Today, I served at a Temple Open house. All I did was direct traffic in the hallways, but it was still very edifying. I was able to visit with people that I haven't seen in years. Plus I got to visit with my Stake President for a little bit. It felt so good to serve others. It is true, that when you serve, you forget about your own problems, then when you go back to them, your problems don't seem so catastrophic as they did before.
I'm thankful for The Atonement of Jesus Christ & for forgiveness. I'm thankful that I can be made whole again."

"I have come to know that thoughts, like water, will stay on course if we make a place for them to go. Otherwise, our thoughts follow the course of least resistance, always seeking the lower levels. Probably the greatest challenge and the most difficult thing you will face in mortal life is to learn to control your thoughts. In the Bible it says, as a man ‘thinketh in his heart, so is he’ (Prov. 23:7). One who can control his thoughts has conquered himself. As you learn to control your thoughts, you can overcome habits, even degrading personal habits. You can gain courage, conquer fear, and have a happy life. "
