Faith overcomes

The greatest enemy to one's sobriety and recovery is this: Fear of our inadequacies to overcome obstacles and challenges we may face. Our greatest ally is faith in our higher power where we draw confidence and strength to face our obstacles and challenges. 

Restoring the temple of the soul

Each religious movement in human history has established a sacred place of worship; except for Christianity. For many Christians, the temple is our physical body.

Stand a little taller in recovery

Growing up in the Mormon faith, one of my favorite hymns were Put your shoulder to the wheel. Not quite a typical hymnal of worship.
