Recovery is a Journey…Enjoy the Trip

Recovery is a Journey...Enjoy the Trip. So how does your recover-strategy-goal-setting prepare you to enter into the journey of recovery?

WOMEN in RECOVERY – Celebrate RECOVERY

Faith in Action ...a Message from Bella... Recently I received an email from a reader who lived in a rural area. She wanted to know if I could offer her any ideas as to a meeting agenda for Women in Recovery. A couple of the women, herself included, were in AA but there were women with other addictions who had no where to go. May you walk your Journey in Peace and Harmony.
