Sacred Spaces

Many of my LDS “Friends in Recovery” tell me that they have given up on the online/call-in versions of our Addiction Recovery Program meetings because it’s harder to feel the spirit. I had the same experience. Although we were discussing the same lessons and sharing the same testimonies, it just didn’t FEEL the same. I missed the smiles, the handshakes and hugs, and the personal interaction. But most distressing, I wasn’t feeling the same Spirit. Recently, I had an epiphany that made ALL THE DIFFERENCE. Join me today as I share this “secret” as we talk about creating our own SACRED SPACES.

Christ’s Atonement–Solving the Puzzle

The statistics are shocking…One in ten Americans is addicted to drugs and/or alcohol. And even more shocking is that only one in one hundred addicts will ever attain full life-long sobriety! I am living proof that even among members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, substance abuse and addiction is a VERY SEROUS problem. Join me now as I attempt to bring a little more public awareness to what has been a very private problem…and offer some solutions to help ALL of us overcome our weaknesses and shortcomings.

LDS Addiction Recovery Support During COVID-19

A few weeks ago, most of us had never heard of COVID-19. As a recovering alcoholic, I can tell you from my own experience… stay-at-home mandates, temporary business closures, and “social distancing” suggestions are almost enough to drive a guy to drink! Starting this week, the Ogden-area LDS Addiction Recovery Program started providing Phone-in/Video Chat group meetings. Find out how to join our group HERE.

What are the 12 steps to recovery?

The LDS Addiction Recovery Program (ARP) is not just 12 steps to addiction recovery…it is much, much more: It is step-by-step instruction on how to partake of the full power of Christ’s Atonement. Taking full advantage of the Atonement is the ultimate goal of EVERY sincere follower of Christ.
