I was asked at my church to be the addiction specialist for this area. I am honored, yet humbled by this. Many who know me, know that this is an area that I study, this is something that I have had some experiences in, and is one that I feel strongly about. But at the same time I am a little overwhelmed. I am actually being faced with some of the desires of my heart, and I pray that I may be an instrument in the Lords hands in helping others overcome their addictions for it is through Him that change and repentance come.
I look forward to this experience, yet know that it will be a challenge. One that will require much faith, and LOTS of guidance. Man has the power to change with the help of the Lord. I hope that I can accurately show them the path and hope they choose to walk it.
Doctrine and Covenants 18:15 And if it so be that you should labor all your days in crying repentance unto this people, and bring, save it be one soul unto me, how great shall be your joy with him in the kingdom of my Father!
