Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Realize I'm not God. I admit that I am powerless to control my tendency to do the wrong thing and that my life is unmanageable. "Happy are those who know they are spiritually poor." Earnestly believe that God exists, that I matter to Him, and that He has the power to help me recover. "Happy are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted." Consciously choose to commit all my life and will to Christ's care and control. "Happy are the meek." Openly examine and confess my faults to God, to myself, and to someone I trust. "Happy are the pure in heart." Voluntarily submit to every change God wants to make in my life and humbly ask Him to remove my character defects. "Happy are those whose greatest desire is to do what God requires." Evaluate all my relationships. Offer forgiveness to those who have hurt me and make amends for harm I've done to others, except when to do so would harm them or others. "Happy are the merciful." "Happy are the peacemakers." Reserve a daily time with God for self-examination, Bible reading, and prayer in order to know God and His will for my life and gain the power to follow His will. Yield myself to be used by God to bring this Good News to others, both by my example and by my words. "Happy are those who are persecuted because they do what God requires." --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Wow! Sometimes we have to take a look back into our past to get a clear view of where we are heading...if we took a wrong turn somewhere along the way it will effect the outcome of our ultimate destination. This participant guide, two in series of four, will guide you through your past to ensure a healthier future. Taking an honest look at the causes, effects, and personal responsibility of sin done to you and by you will help you tremendously in your journey to wholeness. I highly recommend this to all who need help and hope with life's hurts, habits and hangups.

I've tried many self help books and they didn't have the end result I had hoped for! Taking an Honest Spiritual Inventory has really made an impact! I feel like a load has been lifted and my relationship with God is so much stronger!

Format: Paperback
This title is the second in a series of 4 participants guides for a healing ministry known as Celebrate Recovery. Celebrate Recovery is a ministry for Christian sinners who are struggling with hurts, habits and hang-ups. It builds on the fundamental thinking of "Anything Anonymous" by claiming the Trinune God as the Higher Power that we are seeking and uses the Beatitudes as the basis for discovery and healing.

I really like the Celebrate Recovery aspect of these studies. I'm a Christian and like to know what Jesus would have to say to me about not being so patient. It helps me to also understand that I have feelings of my own. That what I feel others feel too. Its nice to know I'm not alone.
