Church Releases Startling, Emotional Video: Overcoming Abuse, Addiction Through Forgiveness


In honor of National Addiction Recovery Month, the Mormon Channel is releasing a series of powerful and raw videos, which focus on the struggles and triumphs of those overcoming various addictions. Watch the first seven videos here.

The 12-part seriesfocuses on the personal experience of 12 former addicts who share startlingly honest and real experiences of their fights to overcome drug, alcohol, food, sex, and pornography addictions.

Each video in the series, titled "12 Steps to Change," aligns with one of the 12 steps in the Church's addiction recovery program

This video is the eighth in the series, which focuses on the story of Larry, whose childhood of abuse and disconnect led him to a life of drug abuse. When Larry finally finds the strength to change his life, he discovers he can only forgive himself if he too forgives those who hurt him in the past.

 Follow us on facebook for regular updates on the rest of the videos.
