Hope through Others’ Experiences

Thank you for the article “My Husband’s Addiction” (August 2006). As a wife with this struggle in my life, I’m grateful for the hope I can see in others’ experiences and triumphs. I have learned that I have to help with his recovery, and that has helped us grow together. Hopefully one day, it will help us overcome the addiction.

Lifting Words

Thank you for giving us the devotional address by Elder Dieter F. Uchtdorf in the July 2006 Ensign. It lifts and inspires the spirit the whole way through. Indeed, he took us through the clouds into “that endless blue sky, feeling free, safe, and home.”

Thank you also for that fine artwork, which is a delight to the eye and enhances the written word most beautifully.

Comfort via the Mail

A couple of days ago we found out that the pregnancy with our conjoined twins had ended in miscarriage. The day we went to the hospital, our Ensign came in the mail. While waiting in the hospital, we pulled it out and noticed an article titled “Bending My Will to His” (August 2006). Even though the article did not apply to us directly, it gave comfort to our souls. We appreciate the time and effort put into making the Ensign and the Liahona.
