Good morning! My name is Lauren, and I'm a grateful, recovering alcoholic/addict. This quote is very true for me right now, and I believe by helping others when I am struggling is makes me stronger. If we were to give up when we were struggling, it would just get worse. But I believe, mentally and spiritually I am getting stronger. It also gets me out myself. It makes me stop thinking and worrying about my own problems for a while. Worrying gets me nowhere anyway. I feel better about helping someone, and they need it. They need my time and it helps me too in some situations. My husband hasn't been working in over a month, so it's been hard financially. When before we were living paycheck to paycheck and now we are living on only my income. But God will provide. I truly belive that. God knows the future and has a job in store for him, in His time. We just have to trust in Him. We also have a friend staying with us for a little while. She needed somewhere to stay, so yeah I'm there. Friends help friends. So no matter how bad things can get, you can still help someone if they need it. You may be in their situation someday, and need help from someone else. Remember that. That's all I have for today! Have a great one! Don't forget to check out my store. Also see more photography at my website www.laurenyoderphotography.com. I have some great photography and books!

Keep your chin down and your guard up (spiritually). You got this!
