So here I sit tempted as I decided to listen to on the radio about people catching their boyfriends/ husbands m~serbating on the radio. then it reminded me how to m~asterbate feels so good. BUt I know in the end it will hinder my progress to eternal life and it will hurt my wife again and I really want to enter in the temple again + my son needs to know that I really belief that all facets of the LDS religion are true and how can I show my son this if I do not live it. So I choose eternal life and not the pleasure for a small moment + my wife might be pregnant agian so if I do not continue to abstain then I can't bless my little baby(ies) to come if she is pregnant. SO once aain I choose eternal life and the blessing of a happy family on earth


"I hope you have been strengthened by the Lord since your last blog. I hear with your post, and I hope you are open to it, a certain type of holding on for dear life. I don't know if you are but it seems there is very little joy in holding on. Have you began working the steps? I don't know if they are for you right now but I have found that as i work through them I find a release beyond the temporary. I know that if I am just holding back form temtation I am only winning half the battle and most of the time am very miserable. If this finds you strong in your program then this intended to cheer you on, if it finds you "white knuckling" please allow me to get some information out to you that works for me as a Latter Day Saint. I will pray for you and your amazing gift as a father and a husband."

"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. "
