Keep Coming Back! Coming Back Works!

I think it was Winston Churchill who said something like, Never, never, ever give up. That's the whole message for today from the Truth to me. I'm sharing it. I know He want's me to share it. Heart to Heart's been hanging in there since about 1990, by the grace of the Lord. Our forums were down for ...

Re: We're Back

Yes! I didn't know how much we had going for us in the forum(s) until they were shut down for repair. I am so excited to get back here and reach out to other LDS fellows and friends. I am committing to checking in here every day and sharing for at least 5-10 minutes. I pray with all my heart that ev...

I know this is a very long, drawn-out, extended (for years) thread (conversation) :!: but I still need to (if I want to tell the truth) pop in here and thank Heavenly Father for you all (Jeff, Tricia, and Stephen) and thank you all for coming here to share. This morning, as I began my morning medita...

Writing: Such a Tool of Sanity and Personal Guidance

Personal: Sharing at the online Heart t’ Heart meeting this morning. June 13, 2016 I would like to share on the tool of writing and how it has become such a tool of sanity and even personal revelation over the years. In my years before being led to the 12 Steps and 12 Traditions based program of O...

THE ONLY DEGREE OF PEACE THAT BRINGS ME GENUINE SANITY

The following sharing was an entry in my July 2003 journal. It is even truer for me today in the face of world and national events as well as aging and watching the challenges of my 11 children who are in their 30s and 40s. I mean, truly, mortality just keeps piling up and piling on. Let's thank God...

June 6 online meeting notes

Today in the online HtH meeting, our leader posted an excerpt from the AA Big Book that included the following thoughts (in bold). I opened my ...

dddd Nope, it doesn't kick in automatically. That means that after you've selected the font size you want, you have to put your cursor in between the two sets of brackets to get it to appear bigger in your post. As far as the size it appears in this little window where you type in your thoughts, I ...

Dear Judy, How glad I am to come, this morning, and find you here, being so brave! You are such a trooper, girl! I think there's a little place at the top of the window where you type in your text that says, "Font size." And there's an arrow that drops down. Let's see, I'm going to try it right now ...

My Sharing - Sat. 7/11/15

Hi, Colleen here, in Cache Valley, N. Utah. I am a beloved daughter of God here on earth to learn by my own experience what works to bring peace and sanity (closeness to God) and what does not. I deal with addictive and compulsive eating as my most deeply entrenched form of idolatry--where I am alwa...

Will-power or Higher Power?

This little essay was originally written in January, 1990 for the local OA news letter in Utah Valley, UT. SO LONG AGO!! Found it when I was gleaning through my January, 1990 journal pages. Will-power or Higher Power? Living in a society that places such a high premium on being self-sufficient, make...

Phil, Thanks so much for your humility in sharing these thoughts. I am reminded of the hymn that says, "It requires a constant effort," . . . I see that the "constant effort" required of me is not to be perfect, without temptation, but to surrender continually to my Savior's power to deliver me from...

I recently heard from someone else who admitted that unhealthy forms of carbohydrate are their "alcohol" too. I am so grateful for their sharing that truth. I know when I stay away from those forms that are my "alcohol," or in other words my "trigger-foods," I eventually have my cravings for them dr...
