Curtis and Tera -- awesome video -- long version even better than the short. I can see why you two have become sources of healing to many others. You seem to have the big picture in such focus, that you can give hope to those not yet at your level of comprehension of SSA and all the experiences and emotions that go into creation of those feelings. Congrats to you both: Tera, for your willingness to support Curtis and find your own healing along the way; Curtis, for addressing the challenges within you, for seeking help, and finding strength and improvement that's been a blessing to your wife, your family, and many who will watch or hear your story. I am envious of the closeness that you two enjoy, no doubt enhanced by having to walk this walk together over the past several years. Maybe someday, my wife will join me on our path of healing. Your healing is inspiring, and story gives me hope that I'll enjoy the blessings that you two have found, God willing.

It's hard for me to express how much respect and admiration I have for you and Tera. The strength and wisdom of your journey is inspiring. Thanks for allowing yourselves to be vulnerable and help lay the ground work for others struggling with SGA; that can lean on your strengths and follow your example and especially see the love you have for the gospel. You both are an inspiration to me and Louise and our lives are far better for knowing and being your friends. May God continue to bless and give you the courage to complete your journey with honor; fulfilling your role as a worthy son of God, a husband, and father.

You are such wonderful people I've been privileged to get to meet and to become friends with. It's so true that out of challenges we become more empathetic, able to love unconditionally and to be able to understand rather than always judging. "Be nice - everyone you meet is fighting a battle." is a favorite quote of mine. We sometimes never know -- even the people closest to us. Thanks for sharing. You have gained valuable wisdom & compassion. You are great examples & I'm so proud to call you my friends. Carry on this needful service to others and know that you are loved & so respected for you faith, courage and commitment. Joan Bennion 27 Feb. 2014

Wow, this is almost my story to the tee. It is so weird to hear my experience told by someone else. I never imagined that others had done what I had done. This fills me with so much hope, and faith, and I just feel like I know what to do now. Thank you
