"Mommy Doesn't Drink Here Anymore"
"Mommy Doesn't Drink Here Anymore", by Rachael Brownell is a sincere, heartfelt story of a alcoholic who like many of us, is a wife, mother, daughter and friend. Read this review and I am sure you will be anxious to follow her journey as you recall your own.
"When Man Listens"
We in recovery sometimes forget that the 12 Steps started long before Bill and Dr. Bob. This is a review of a book published in 1937 that is timeless and for everyone.
'I WILL NOT BE BROKEN
Every single person in the universe will probably face a crisis sometime in their lives. We can't know the future but we can be a little more prepared for it. This is a great book for anyone who wants to live a full, happy life no matter what!
12 Steps That Could Save Your Life
"12 steps that can save your life" by Barb Rogers is not just another book about the 12 steps. It is an opportunity to see the steps in action. This book is great for anyone who wants to refresh their sobriety and for newcomers who still aren't sure what the steps are all about.
An Awakening - A Book Review
When the self-help books are long gone, there is a desire to read about "us". After a period of time, we may want to step out of that recovery mode and read/meditate on the bigger picture of who we are today. "The Book of Awakening" by Mark Nepo may be exactly what you need.
BROKEN – A Book Review
BROKEN by William Cope Moyers with Katherine Ketcham is an account of one man's battle with addiction, relapse, and recovery. It's real, honest, and leaves us with very important questions about our own recovery. This should be a definite addition to your library.
Codependency and Detachment - A Book Review
The Twelve Steps of any recovery program are almost identical but the way we personalize them are different. This book helped me look at codependency and boundaries in a fresh, new way.
God is at the Meeting - A Book Review
A wonderful publication that focuses on alcoholism and Maurice C's journey through spirituality and the Twelve Steps. A treat for anyone in recovery!
How To STOP Screwing Up - A Book Review
An up-front, honest review of "How to STOP Screwing Up". Author, Martha Woodroof, uses the 12 Steps to help anyone confront their evil urges in an offbeat, sometimes humorous way. But is this book for everyone?
Lovingkindness - A Book Appreciation
There are so many books out there for us to read that awaken our conscious contact with God. This book, though, has become my favorite because it speaks to me not as a woman in recovery but as a person who wants to find peace in life.
The Intervention Book
I have talked about my book before but have never actually written about what it is all about. Someone else has and I am delighted to have you read his review.
The Stories in the Big Book
The Big Book is the blueprint and the textbook for most of us in recovery. Don't overlook the forty-two stories. These personalize the steps, show how the program works and proves there is a solution.
