So i have gone one day with out p&m. It was a good day. I am going to talk with the bishop tonight and start the recovery steps. I have gone over the questions and answered them. Wow it was hard to be honest about all of it. Just lots of things i wanted to forget about. I know that i need to let the bishop know everything its just so hard. I have always thought that bishops would judge me for making the same mistake over and over. They dont they only want what is best for me. I cant make it to the meetings on saturday becuase of work so i asked my bishop to go through them with me. Send your prayers please. I am afraid it is going to be very hard but with you guys on here my bishop and the Lord i know i can best this.


Keep strong    
"Hey Josh, you're going to do great. I found the initial talk with my bishop was great if for no other reason than to tell SOMEONE about my struggle. Keep it up and you'll have us all here praying for you."

"It went awesome. I have a new desire to do this. We talked for an hour or more. This will work. Thanks for the prayers."

Keeping it Celestial    
"Way to go! Keep the faith, and never let Satan convince you anything less than what is celestial is worth it. Meeting with your bishop really helps, so it's great that you're taking that step. Best of luck to you!"

"Hey Josh,
How have things gone the last 3 weeks? Hope ok - if you slipped up again, don't get discouraged, it's going to happen to almost everyone that embarks on the journey of recovery. If you're still good, then congrats! Keep up the good work, and keep reaching out to people around you. Whatever you do, don't let yourself slip back into secrecy where these things thrive. Good luck!"

"Freedom from your transgression will come through sincere faith, true repentance, willing obedience, and the giving of self. Why the giving of self? Because selfishness is at the root of your problem. Where selfishness and transgression flourish, the Spirit of the Lord can’t enter your life to bless you. To succeed, you must conquer your selfishness. When your beacon is focused on self, it does little more than blind your vision. When turned outward through acts of kindness and love, it will light your path to happiness and peace. "
