The burdens we choose to bear alone (when we don’t have to)

More often than not we choose not to leverage the power of the Gospel in our lives.  We make the choice to let go of the Iron Rod, and stumble in the dark.  This life is about gaining our mortal bodies, and learning through our own experiences and choices.  Through our strife, our troubles, our … Continue reading The burdens we choose to bear alone (when we don’t have to)

One minute of patience

The last year has taught me a lot about myself.  I’m learning how much I didn’t allow myself to understand about myself.  I spent three decades trying to hide part of myself from anyone else, but more importantly from myself.  I would binge amidst feelings and desires I didn’t understand, and then be ashamed of … Continue reading One minute of patience

Heart to Heart, Principle 2 – I Glory in My Jesus (part 2)

Life changing behavior is often brought about by life-changing events, or crisis.  We are seldom able to push ourselves in the right direction without a rather abrupt and urgent push for change.  We enjoy the comfort of our current situations, even when they are bad ones, to want to change. Change, even GOOD change, is … Continue reading Heart to Heart, Principle 2 – I Glory in My Jesus (part 2)

A Journal for Diapers, gathering data 

While replying to an email to another ABDL blogger (recoveringdl) I brought up the point about perhaps keeping a journal of sorts so I could track how often I wear.  We had been discussing frequency of wearing, and the differences of having a set schedule of when to wear and wearing when you “need” or … Continue reading A Journal for Diapers, gathering data 

Heart to Heart, a series – Introduction

While in Church a previous Sunday it was announced that a Heart To Heart class would be starting at the ward, or congregational level, in the coming months.  I think I let the announcement float over me the first time. Then again, it was discussed more, and my wife and I both talked about attending … Continue reading Heart to Heart, a series – Introduction
