Over the next 8 weeks I plan to release a blog post each week that talks about the RECOVERY path from the Celebrate Recovery Bible and workbooks that go with it. It is a very inspirational path that takes from some well known recovery programs and ideas and puts them into a Christian perspective. I encourage you if you are new to your recovery, or already in it, to read through this. It put a new light on some old ways.
If you have any songs you think would fit with the individual topics below, let me know in the comments section.
