Hello I want to thank you for this. I’ve just relocated where family is and a very sick mother. Family is less supportive than hoped for. My job I moved with is not been very helpful. It appears my struggle at hand is only to rely on God due to they are bigger than me! Somedays I just don’t have the strength. But if you take time to notice, you’ll see small miracles and tender mercies. This has given me strength. Thank you!

What an inspiring and thought-provoking article. Just what I needed at a very critical time in my long life. Thank you sooooo.. much.

As a recovering addict, I love your article. Grace is the only power by which recovery is possible, and I have learned that we are all in recovery, whether we recognize it or not. 12 step meetings are the "workshop of the atonement", as humble people rely on the Savior for help. His grace is sufficient, not "after" all we can do, but rather, as we do all we can do. It is a daily partnership with the Savior, and it works!

One of my favorite experiences in life is that moment when a slight shift of perspective completely expands my view. This article has been one of those for me today. Welcome to mortality! It was designed to be hard. I am not a disappointing failure, I am climbing the mountain home to heaven and learning so much on this journey. I CAN do hard things and God is here helping me. I can feel his presence when I keep my heart turned to him. Thank you so much for the reminder Maureen.

You're article was a little answer to a prayer for me this week. I would also like to add that we do receive the help , but it is in the Lord's time and often we expect it to happen right away Because we may feel so at the end of our limits physically ,spiritually, or mentally, and when it doesn't we feel frustrated or that we somehow lacked something in our ability to ask for help, or to feel worthy of it. It is during these times of hanging on, so to speak, with one finger, that we learn so very much.Thank you so much again for your wonderful article.
