BLOGS

I draw inspiration from others in recovery, so I have put together a list of other blogs I follow. They are sometimes fun and bubbly and sometimes dark and deep. But, the main thing is that it is a person in recovery writing from the heart about their personal journey through recovery.

JOHN PAVLOVITZ

John Pavolivtz is a Christian ally. He fights for the rights of all and fights against the injustice that can be so prevalent in the Christian religion. He speaks on things most others would like to sweep under the rug. John believes ALL people have the potential to go to Heaven.

UNFUNDAMENTALIST CHRISTIANS

Unfundamentalist is a great blog that detaches itself from the fundies and the right and opens up Christianity to all, not just a select few. They commonly speak on topics of equality, acceptance, and truth.

UNPICKLED

UnPickled is written by a woman named Jean. She has a similar goal in mind; to reach people with her story in the hopes it helps other people in their journey through sobriety. She has a very raw recognition that her story isn’t just hers, it is everyone who reads it as well as hers.

RECOVERY REFLECTIONS

Recovery Reflections is a blog dedicated to quotes about recovery. As you know, I am a collector of quotes, and many of these end up in my quote journal. It is a great read to find many sobering (pun intended) quotes about recovery, sobriety, and everything related. They apply to regular life as well.

MY JOURNEY FROM AN ADDICT

My Journey from an Addict, with the tagline of “It’s not always Crystal clear,” is one that I relate to on certain levels. Mary Beth speaks about addiction and relationships in her blog posts. Dealing with my recovery and my relationship is a hard one, and to see someone else speaking on that close-to-home situation, I really enjoy reading her posts.

DISCOVERING BEAUTIFUL

Discovering Beautiful is similar to my posts, in that it is interspersed with faith based recovery methods. I love that she speaks about her faith, how God provided her this second chance, and how she shares scriptures that apply to her recovery. I have been following her on Facebook for some time now and am always one to read her posts.

HIP SOBRIETY

Hip Sobriety is a little different from the rest. Holly couldn’t find a recovery path that worked for her when she wanted to go sober, so she created her own program. She now uses that journey as a path to guide others through recovery. Her blog is full of great stories and accounts from her personal life and recovery.

SOBER COURAGE

Magz tagline describes all of us in our journeys, “from liquid courage to sober courage.” She relates to the readers on a personal level that all of us can find similarities in. She talks about not only common struggles among people living in recovery, but also her personal and unique journey through sobriety. She also has many resources for people living in recovery sprinkled all throughout her blog.

THE UNRUFFLED

Where art and recovery meet. The Unruffled is a collective of sober people living their lives in recovery and telling their stories of recovery and art along the way. It puts recovery into a more visual frame of mind that is refreshing to see in a world that can be so hard to look at.

THE MIGHTY

The Mighty is a user contributed blog site that touches on many different afflictions, including alcoholism, mental illness, depression, and more. It allows people to share their experiences and voices on topics that affect nearly everyone. It works to break the stigma attached to illnesses people live with daily.

INTERNATIONAL BIPOLAR FOUNDATION

The International Bipolar Foundation is a force in the bipolar advocacy world. Their blog is a user contributed, curated, topic specific feed. It is all written by people who either live with bipolar disorder or are in the medical field who actively work to help people who have bipolar disorder.

DAVE WISE MATTERS

In this blog Dave writes about affirmations. His stories, and those who share their stories on his page, are threaded with faith, life, and hope. He speaks about how to live a life with bipolar disorder and also be healthy in your faith.

QUEER THEOLOGY

Queer Theology puts Christianity into the perspective of being part of the LGBT community and having faith. They work towards breaking that ridiculous barrier that a lot of the Christian right have put up against anyone different than them.

THE GOOD MEN PROJECT

The Good Men Project puts things in a male perspective. They have a dedicated blog section highlighting gay men and topics ranging from taboo to main stream.

THE GAYLY

From its name alone you can guess this site is all things “gay.” There are topics ranging from religion, advocacy, addiction, and more. The articles are user submitted so you get a good look at issues that face the LGBT community.

Disclaimer : None of the blogs listed are sponsored. And though I have made friends with a few of the bloggers, they are not affiliated with my blog, nor are they being given special listings here. They are listed simply because I have found inspiration in them. The opinions in the blogs may not 100% reflect my own, but they provide inspiration in some way that I see beneficial to Christianity, recovery, homosexuality, and/or mental health.
