Learn how to you too can find freedom from your own hurts, hang-up and habits.
on September 26, 2016
This is an awesome book, written by John Baker, the founder of Celebrate Recovery, a 12 Step program based on biblical principles. I ordered three copies of the book, one to keep for myself and the two others went to friends. The full title is actually Life's Healing Choices: Freedom from Your Hurts, Hang-ups, and Habits and includes a forward by Saddleback Church's senior pastor, the author of The Purpose Driven Life, Rick Warren.
John Baker, a former pastor at Saddleback Church, based this book on the eight steps to spiritual freedom (admitting need, getting help, letting go, coming clean, making changes, repairing relationships, maintaining momentum and recycling pain) to help Christians overcome many kinds of addictive behaviors.
This was taken from John Baker’s Biography: "John Baker is the founder of Celebrate Recovery®, a ministry born out of the heart of Saddleback Church. Over the last sixteen years, nearly 10,000 individuals have gone through this Christ-centered recovery program at Saddleback. The Celebrate Recovery program is now being used in 12,000 churches nationwide. Over 500,000 individuals have completed the program.
This book is very well written, easy to understand and follow and can help anyone who wants to make the choices necessary to start on their own personal journey, their own road to recovery, from life's hurts, hang-ups and habits.
