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!

"Now, my brothers and sisters, let not Jesus’ redemption for us stop at the immortalizing dimension of the Atonement, “the loosing of the bands of death”. Let us grasp the proffered gift of eternal life! We will end up either choosing Christ’s manner of living or His manner of suffering! It is either “suffer even as I”, or overcome “even as [He] … overcame”. His beckoning command is to become “even as I am”. The spiritually settled accept that invitation, and “through the atonement of Christ,” they become and overcome! "

— Neal A. Maxwell
