Road to Redemption
By Layne

I am currently in the process of regaining the sanity, normalcy, and piece of mind addiction has slowly and deliberately stolen from me over the past 14 years. As a return missionary, I remember being filled with a zest for life, and a vigorous desire to share the gospel with others. Over time, that seemingly unquenchable fire, was extinguished by addiction. At the precipice of losing everything I valued in this life, I was given a second chance. I now struggle each day to regain the Spirit that once filled my soul. I know the path to redemption is through the precepts of Christ's teachings, and the example of his life. I pray that His strength can endow me with the power I require on road to provident living. I commend all of you who struggle to overcome your challenges. I pray for you, and ask that you do the same for me. God bless you, and know that you are not alone.

"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. "

— Boyd K. Packer
