My friend shared with me we were going to have two passengers with us.
Our two passengers was a lovely shy mother and her daughter.
It was a wonderful Sabbath and my new friend shared with the branch how one simple act of kindness had touched her heart so deeply.
That simple act was a simple wave of a hand, a smile and an excited "Hey how are you? Good to see you!"
I shared with my friend and new friend what I had learned in my home Branch about a 12 step program the Church had introduced and how I was thinking about doing it.
They were both on board, so I gave my new friend my quad and each of them a copy of the 12 steps and our parting words were "let the journey begin."
As I share my 12 step journey here I am in hopes it will be a testimony to others who are struggling with their own inner struggles.
At LDS.org they have 12 video stories that follow each step,
I would highly encourage one to check them out and listen to the stories shared.
I tried to paste and copy but I couldn't get the link to work.
In the search box type in "12 steps to change" and they should pop right up for you
"LET GO OF PRIDE AND SEEK HUMILITY
I have always tried my best to be honest with those around me.
I was not willing to let go of that piece, if I let go of that one piece I would become vulnerable with no walls to protect me.
Running is so much easier than admitting you were in the wrong.
