Share Your Story

We would like to hear your story.

One key ingredient to help people believe that recovery is possible and that our Heavenly Father can restore them to complete spiritual health is to hear the stories and testimonies of others in recovery. These stories are intended to serve a public audience of Church members. 

We accept stories of recovery about:

  • Individuals who have a personal experience of recovery from a substance abuse or pornography addiction.

  • Family and friends who have experienced their own healing as they have worked through the addiction of a loved one.

The following stories are examples:

Surrendering Myself to the Lord

Working Through It Together

Lost, But Now Found
