Brett Walker - Arise! Breaking Free from Life's Shadows and Facing the Son

How would your life be different if you stopped looking at the shadows life casts on the ground, turned and looked to the sky and saw clearly the light of the Son?  When we look to the light of our Savior, and feel His love warming us, we don't see the shadows that fall behind us.

Where would you stand relative to someone if you were the savior?

Brett Walker has served for many years as a service missionary in the LDS PASAG program, and has gained clear insights over the years of how to win against an addiction to pornography.  He shares in this episode some of the benefits he has seen in attending and participating in a 12 step meeting.  Even though that first meeting may be a challenge to go, and then to open your car door and walk in, it will be worth the effort.

In his recently published book, Arise! Breaking Free from Life's Shadows and Facing the Son, Brett tells the story of a man caught in his addiction and the journey he walks to make a real change for the better in life.  I read the free excerpt download available here, and I immediately bought the book so I can read the rest.

We can never go so far from the savior that he wouldn’t be a light for us and bring us out of that darkness.
