Here are the top ten articles for the 12 Step Recovery Site! These rankings are live and get reset at the beginning of each month, so check back often to see what your fellow visitors are most interested in!
1. Independence Through Step Three
When we let go and let God we are practicing Step Three. Think of the angst you suffered in the past by trying to do it all by yourself. In sobriety we never have to bear a burden alone. We turn it over to a Higher Power and feel a freedom that gives us peace.
2. The Dime Story
This is one of the articles I publish annually. There are times when we turn our lives over to our Higher Power but we lack the absolute trust He hears us. This is not just a story but an "activity" for anyone who is feeling spiritually alone. If you are sincere, you will be truly amazed! Try it!
3. How to Make Amends - Step 8
Every August (8th month), I republish this article. It is one of my most read and I hope one of my most helpful.
Your ability to make amends with confidence and sincerity depends on how well you prepare. Don't believe that you can go this route alone.
4. Step 1 - Managing the Chaos
A New Year requires a look at Step One. We all understand the powerless part of it but are we still able to manage our lives in recovery.
5. The God Box
I've resurrected this article because I have had to remind myself lately about turning it over. Life's problems and concerns are challenging. Those of us in recovery do not have a corner on this market. The God Box is for everyone and anyone who wants to feel peace within themselves.
6. Spirituality-Back from Hell
Religion and spirituality are very different not only for people in recovery but for everyone. Spirituality is the lifeline that keeps us connected to our Higher Power and to our own recovery.
7. Our Primary Purpose
Responsibility and purpose...two important elements to maintain sobriety. Are we willing to give back to everyone in need or do we only help those within our comfort zone?
8. Mother/Daughter Day
Mother's Day is one of the most celebrated days of the year. Not every woman is a mother but we are all daughters. Examine your own relationship, past or present, with your mom. Are/were you the best daughter you could be?
9. Amends and Recovery
We are in recovery and yet we are still human. Every now and then we revert back to old behaviors. Are we focusing on recovery or just letting life happen?
10. 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.
