I made it early to church today and stayed for all three hours. It was the first time going to all three meetings in a long time. I forgot that we switched schedules and I even went to an hour of the other ward to;-)

I am going to attend an SA meeting tonight. I have been looking back at myself an realizes just how far away from the gospel I have gotten over the last 6 years.

Recovery has become a part of my life now. It is a positive work I can accomplish daily. It use to be purely shame but now I see it differently. It is a part of my life. It is a work that creates opportunities for service and a chance to get closer to my father in heaven.

Have a great night everyone.

"hey man, congrats on going to church - that's a great step. hopefully you experienced love and acceptance from them, I always have. Keep up the good decisions and be patient. Remember that recovery is like planting and nourishing a seed and will take time, effort, hope, and patience. Good luck!"

Thank you!    
"I appreciate the kind words. Yes one step at a time and keep making good decisions. They were nice and it was good to be there. It's tough in some ways and great in others. No matter what though its where I need to be."

"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. "
