    Episode #225 - Love Me

    Episode #225 - Love Me

    We all wonder at times whether the Lord loves us.  We wonder if our relationship is growing.  Many times we desperately seek and hope to feel that love.  I hope this message helps you to see just how loved you are.

    Episode #224 - Unclean

    Episode #224 - Unclean

    As the lepers cried out during Christ's day so do others whose fate is similar to the lepers.  Addiction affects more than the person who is suffering.  It is a power of mind and body that needs the power of the Savior.

    Episode #222 - Deep Desires - Infertility-Single Life-Divorce

    For many members and individuals blessings such as marriage, children and a loving spouse have not yet materialized.  It can be a deeply painful experience to have righteous desires left unfulfilled without answers.  Trials of righteous desires can be perhaps the most painful in one's life.  Finding peace and joy can be a difficult process fraught with doubt, unworthiness, and sleepless nights.  I hope that this podcast can bring a small measure of peace.

    Episode #220 - Applying the Power of the Atonement

    In preparation for Easter, I would like to return to one of my favorite episodes.  When we better understand the nature of the Atonement of Jesus Christ, we will possess greater power to access the powers of healing, understanding, grace and mercy.

Finally...a fellow traveler on a similar path.

Thank you for this podcast. It had brought hope and grab air back into my life. My first thought after listening to my first episode...finally, someone else on the same path really gets it! Thank you for helping me to keep traveling the covenant path and learning it doesn't have to be filled with guilt and doubt.

There’s a lot of meat here

I’ve been listening to Damon’s podcast off and on for a year maybe. I listen to most new episodes and have gone back to prior ones that sound appealing to my current life status. I’ve never met Damon, this podcast was simply a suggestion and I’ve listened to 3-4 dozen episodes now. My spouse struggles with these issues at a higher level than me and this podcast often fills the gaps in my understanding or provides appreciation for where my partner is coming from. Mental illness is not clear and easy. It requires help, assistance, increased understanding, etc. Damon does a great job! If I met him in person I’d spend 4-5 mins just listing off specific compliments for his work here.

The content here is free. I don’t recall him ever pitching a paid product, he seems to do this out of a true love for his fellow man that may be on a similar journey and he feels he can help and add understanding, and he does it very well!

This podcast has more than meets the eye and I think the author invests more time than we could appreciate, both in his written word and getting in the right headspace to offer insights on so many challenging topics. Definitely give 3-4 episodes a listen and do so while alone and allowing yourself time to think and ponder. And thank you Damon for sharing your gift and insights with me and others, so freely and purposefully. One day I may meet you and I’ll get a chance to thank you in person.
