  1. Sidreis!!! Love your blog! Is there any way you can link to an online playlist so we can play these awesome songs?

    Love you sweetie, so brave! :-)

    1. I'm not sure! It's something I will definitly look into because I think that's a great idea. I'll work on it. Thanks! Love you back!


  2. Here's one for your list...
    "Free" by John Mandeville

    1. Thank you so much Dale for that song! I love it! I've never heard of that artist but I'm adding him to my aresenal of music. Thanks again:-)

  3. I'm going to add brightly beams our father's mercy (the Lower lights version) to this list. Amazing recovery in that. It heals me whenever I listen to it.

  6. Sidreis - thanks for this blog and this recovery music. I was in need of some recovery music today and I knew just where to come! :) -MM

    1. Thanks! Let me know if you have any songs to add! I haven't added any in a while and I'm always looking for new tunes!:-)

  7. "It's all right" By Brandon Heath
    (Brandon Heath is REALLY a good singer, his songs are gold for heartbreaks)

    "Beautiful Heartbreak" By Hilary Weeks

    1. Thank you for these suggestions! They are great. I've added them to the list:-)

  8. Can you check this one? (already in the list) Jar of Hearts – Christina Perri (equate the guy with addiction)

    1. I'm not sure what you mean by "check it?" - I did look at it and it's working?

  9. Hey I just watched a video on youtube called Broken by Kenneth Cope and bawled and bawled. It's up on my site or you can check it out to add to your list. IT's amazing!!!

  10. "His Hands" By Kenneth Cope
    Cause His Hands clean us

  11. Ok This is what I want you to do!!! Go to and sign up for a free account. It's just a free streaming mp3 website. I have a few playlists that I have made with LDS music, my favorites, one for my kids, etc. I JUST discovered that you can share your playlists via "embed". You can copy the html and import it into your BLOGGER template under the "Layout" option. Add a gadget on the right side of your website, and choose the HTML gadget. Paste the HTML you got from Grooveshark, and your playlist will show up in a little player on your website for all to choose songs and listen to. Just a suggestion. I did it on MY blogger website to test it out, and it does work. That way, when you update your playlist, the playlist is updated. I am guessing you SHOULD be able to find most of these songs on there. Maybe not, but I just thought I would offer a suggestion...

  12. Absolutely LOVING working my way through the list :)

  13. Gentle saviour -Daniel beck is one I completely love :) thank you for everything you do :)


    Let Him Heal Your Heart by Tyler Castleton. This song is my all-time favorite and has helped me in my recovery so much! So if you're still adding to your wonderful list, I would suggest you add this one to it! Thanks!
