As an addict I can’t count the number of times in which I’ve needed more faith… more trust in God and in His plan for me, more hope that I can still be rescued from my addictions, even just a flicker of a desire to believe that I am not completely lost. Many times I have found such faith and hope by listening to others share their own in LDS addiction recovery group meetings, Alcoholics Anonymous group meetings, personal recovery blogs, and speakers in church.
“So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God” (The Holy Bible, New Testament, Romans 10:17).
Every six months the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints holds a live conference of faith and hope. It’s broadcast to the world via satellite, cable, TV, and Internet. It’s translated into hundreds of languages. Every time I watch this conference and listen for what God wants me to hear, I am lifted and I find faith and hope that God will help me through my challenges, trials, and weaknesses. I feel a belief deep in my heart that He is there and mindful of me, and that He loves me.
I invite you to participate in this conference. You can even do it from the comfort of your home or via the mobility of a device connected to the Internet. Watch the video for more information. May you find faith and hope in Jesus Christ as you watch and listen to the words of those who’ve felt His love and hope in their own lives.

Wonderful Post! I think we can use more “Recovery Miracles”! I have been blessed with many in my 7yr Recovery! :-)
Do you know about http://intherooms.com and the Recovery 2.0 conference live stream in MAY??

I hadn’t heard of that site. It looks great! What a wonderful idea to network with fellow recovering addicts like that. Thanks for sharing!
A friend of mine mentioned the 2.0 conference and I’m planning on watching it. Are the 2.0 conference and intherooms.com parts of the same entity?
Yes….In The Rooms is the Recovery Website that “Hosts” the Conference each year. They also are a wonderful place for info, help and support from all types of addictions. They have chats, online 12-step meetings and more! You’ll love the site. *Cat*
