Those are choices people make. Some of us make different choices, but by no
means are they any less correct or valid than those of brad mills.
When we have accomplished nothing in our lives by our choices, it's easy
to be critical of others positive and rewarding accomplishments based on their
Great story! I had to quit my drinking habit of 30 years to join the Church 13
years ago. Yes, Lord have a plan for you. Go, Mills!
I find it so interesting that so many people have the same type of experience
and yet others can't find the light. I think that it was best said that he
wasn't being sincere in his reading of the Book of Mormon and then praying
about it. That is the key and some just don't want to admit that they are
not sincere.Very good article with some good steps in finding truth.
It is always rewarding to find out what life is really all about.
@ Eddie. I agree with you. I think the Lord knows our hearts and if any person
isn't willing to act on the spiritual knowledge we insincerely ask for, we
won't get it! If the Lord gives us this converting knowledge and we
don't act on it (change), it will lead to our condemnation. Either way it
is another example of the tender mercies of God and his respect for our agency.
Thanks for a wonderful article and story. Good luck Brad Mills, on and off the
ice! A very inspirational story. I hope your mom and siblings are someday able
to feel the same joy you are experiencing in the gospel!
Cool story, especially when he felt such a physical improvement after he stopped
drinking. I admire his father for staying active. What a payoff! There are
many LDS folks in Alberta but few hockey players because of the Sunday
committment in the kids' youth. We will be following Brad's career
@Hutterite,I love it when all things LDS bother people. It makes me
so happy when people are so anti LDS that any time they hear or see any church,
temple, BYU sticker, Mormon person, or even green jello their thoughs are
consumed by the Mormons.Thanks for being bothered. It makes me
Thanks for the story. I really enjoyed it. I am a convert of 20 years. Many good
things happened in my life because of the choices I made that were dictated by
Great Story. We can always choose our options, but we can't choose our
consquences. Some consquences are better than others. Some consquences can be
devastating. It is good to see this young man turn things around as did his
@Hutterite"Some of us make different choices, but by no means
are they any less correct or valid than those of brad mills."I
must say I disagree wholeheartedly with the above statement. Some of us do make
different choices, that is true. However, some choices ARE less correct than
others. Take alcohol, for instance. Given the story, I think it is an
appropriate example. I know first hand that the path of drunkenness is one that
has a very bad ending. Some of my closest friends and family, myself included,
have absolutely ruined their lives because of the very poor choice to drink. It
is NOT a correct or valid lifestyle choice. I hope you aren't telling
anyone that it is. If you are, I hope with all of my heart they do not listen.
Great story. So proud of Brad Mills' father, Craig, for being such a
stalwart and example the past 22 years. I'm sure he prays for the day the
rest of his family will join him & Brad in the Church as well. Press on good
Great story. When he sincerely asked God about the BofM, his answer came. Like
so many other people in the church, when the Spirit testifies of the
truthfulness of the BoM, you have a strong conviction that it is true.
