    Serious damage to someone's most important relationships is not uncommon during active addiction.  It can take months, years and even a lifetime to repair broken relationships after trust has been broken and harm has been done.  In this heartfelt episode, Kelly and Jessica talk about their different relationship experiences since coming into recovery.  They discuss what it means to make a living amends, how they navigate severely damaged relationships and some beautiful experiences of healing through the atonement of Jesus Christ.

Cannonaf ,

An important glimpse into recovery for two amazing women!

Having seen so many people who haven’t been able to beat addiction and find lasting recovery, I love hearing stories from the lives of those who DO find lasting recovery! Jessica and Kelly are both inspiring examples of how to find recovery despite the ongoing challenges every day life throws at them. I have no doubt there are people who will choose to change their lives because of how willingly Jessica and Kelly share theirs!
