    Thank you for being open and honest in your journey to wholeness. You inspire me and I am not even addicted to anything! But I can see how many of your goals and helpful ideas will work in my everyday life. Thank you.

    Keep up the good work! I’m going on 20 yrs. alcohol free. Don’t need it, and honestly don’t even think about it anymore. But, can’t get too cocky. There may come a day….. and I pray I’ll know what to do if that day comes. I’ve been lucky to have a lot of support with friends and family. And, my life has improved ten fold. I don’t mind being around people who drink, because there are a lot of them. But, I prefer to focus on actually accomplishing something or just staying active as opposed to sitting around watching people get drunk. Maybe I’m a sobriety snob? Life is too good, why do everything in your power to avoid it. Stay sober, stay strong & live a great life!!!!

    As an adult daughter of an alcoholic…who sadly could not beat this demon…I somewhat understand how difficult the fight must be. Congratulations on overcoming it and continuing to work on yourself and inspire many thousands of people on a daily basis!!!!

    I admire your courage and humility in sharing your journey. God knows we are not perfect, that is why He gave us His grace, which is undeserved forgiveness. Understanding that none of us are perfect, allows us to extend grace to others. Well done Rob, you are an inspiration

  • Theresa Rausch

    Rob, you are an amazing example of all things good in this world. You played a hand that wasn’t right for you and found a way to make things right. Your continued pursuit of the path you were meant to follow is a testament of the strong man you are today. All this shows thru your quilt art. Stay strong and CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!

  • Ann Powell Grimes

    That is a great thing Rob. Congrats, high five, handshake and hug! My grandfather was a recovering alcoholic when I was born and I still remember going to AA meetings with him as a tiny got bc he passed when I was 6. One of my most treasured possessions is his 24 hours a day book and the plaquard he penned with the serenity prayer

  • Wanda B

    I am so Blessed that you shared your story with me. My dad was a recovering alcoholic and I say recovering because it will always be a battle within yourself. He passed away in 2009 but he was many years sober and I am thankful for that. Congratulations on making it this far and may God give you the strength to keep going. Sharing your story is a great thing and the way you put it into words is so beautifully done. God Bless you and everyone you touch!

  • Mary D

    Keep striving to stay free, keep believing that you can make, keep pressing towards the positive energy, remember that there is a higher purpose for your life, be encouraged in your spirit, keep your resources very near and handy and know that with sharing your story you have a lot more people rooting and praying for your success.

    Congratulations on your anniversary. I was directed to your site through a Pinterest pin about Free Motion quilting, but checked on your blog, which I normally don’t do. Your writing here is inspirational to me, and very applicable to my life as I entered this year trying to better myself, but found myself last week in the hospital in the throes of depression. After reading this I am reminded that God is at the wheel, and I just need to take a step back from trying to over control my own life. Thank you!
