After Many Days

Impatience is something I fight constantly. I’m the sort of person that once I know what I want, I expect to be able to obtain it as soon as possible, usually by doing some small task and then being done with it. I find it difficult to wait. 2 people like this post. Like Unlike

Heart and Soil

In a Sunday School lesson I attended, the question was asked, “How do we overcome the influence of Satan in our lives?” Though I didn’t specifically hear any wrong answers, I was frustrated that they all had the same basic tone: just decide you are going to not do what he wants you to. 1 […]

His Long-Suffering

Over the years I’ve operated LDSR.org, I’ve seen a lot of people come to our support forums and often go as quickly as they came. Some post, get what they feel they need, and disappear.

Happy Mother’s Day

On this day, when we in America celebrate mothers, I want to wish all mothers who visit this site a very happy Mother’s Day. It may seem like a strange place for such a greeting, considering the focus of this site. However, it seems to me that mothers here, whether dealing with addiction or with […]

Shafts in the Whirlwind

I remember seeing a documentary on one of those cable channels about what a tornado can do with just a few sticks. The force of the wind is so strong that it can force a small piece of wood through a wall. A larger projectile does all the more damage, impaled in solid structures with […]

Weary in Well-Doing

The Lord advises: Wherefore, be not weary in well-doing, for ye are laying the foundation of a great work. And out of small things proceedeth that which is great (D&C 64:33). 1 person likes this post. Like Unlike

What You Really Want

When I meet someone who is at a crossroads about changing something in their life, I ask what I think is a fairly pertinent question. “What do you want?” 1 person likes this post. Like Unlike
