It is ironic that what helped me stop acting out today was finding a photograph. I found a picture taken of my daughter and I at a daddy/daughter date that was sponsored by our Stake. When I saw it it really hit me that what I had been doing would really hurt her if she knew about it.

Up until today I had been sober for a month. I think I will carry that picture around with me -- it really hit me how much she needs me, and needs a father that treats women and womenhood the right way.


"Way to go! Good thoughts."

"Now, my brothers and sisters, let not Jesus’ redemption for us stop at the immortalizing dimension of the Atonement, “the loosing of the bands of death”. Let us grasp the proffered gift of eternal life! We will end up either choosing Christ’s manner of living or His manner of suffering! It is either “suffer even as I”, or overcome “even as [He] … overcame”. His beckoning command is to become “even as I am”. The spiritually settled accept that invitation, and “through the atonement of Christ,” they become and overcome! "
