Fifth Week Sober

Today marks my fifth week sober. I say that with caution. Whether it is five weeks or five years, the most important thing is that each day I am planning ahead and managing my impulses and staying away from all pathways that may lead me back to sin. Five weeks is great, but I am also striving for quality of those days not just the quantity.

My thoughts and prayers go out to all of you on your personal journey. I know its tough out there but as Pres. Kimball said there is no "royal road" of repentance but we are promised the Lord is with us every step of the way.


Woo hoo!

"I need not define your specific problem to help you overcome it. It doesn’t matter what it is. If it violates the commandments of the Lord, it comes from Satan, and the Lord can overcome all of Satan’s influence through your application of righteous principles. Please understand that the way back is not as hard as it seems to you now. Satan wants you to think that it is impossible. That is not true. The Savior gave His life so that you can completely overcome the challenges you face. "
