Learning to love and accept who our Higher Power is and relate this to the fantastic detail that Dawn has shown us really made the journey throughout this book very powerful and uplifting. Dr. Dawn V. Obrecht has given us the tools to reach deep within ourselves and to relate to so many people in recovery through their own stories. I recommend this book to anyone looking to understand the frustration or resentment of finding a power greater than themselves in order to find their happiness and peace within themselves. Dr. Obrecht shows us how to relate and embrace recovery through a higher power without the fear that so many of us grew up with. I highly recommend this book to anyone in recovery, and even to those that are not in recovery but are looking for peace within.

A moving, honest and insightful read. This is a subject of great importance in the process of recovery. Many in recovery struggle with the notion of becoming comfortable with God. We are asked to be willing and honest and yet sometimes the honest integration of a higher power into our lives seems insurmountable. This book offers a well balanced discussion, based on real life experiences, on processes that have worked for a cross section of people in recovery. Dr. Obrecht does a wonderful job coming full circle with examples of personal stories of people building a higher power in their recovery. We all have our own story and our own process. I am very grateful that Dr. Obrecht included a section on real results of recovery without a higher power and just as important, the hope that it is never too late.

Most people who come into recovery programs come loaded with a well established anger towards religion and any kind of God. I came into recovery with exactly that emotion. As a result, I struggled making progress in my early recovery. I had many years of being in AA, before I was able to grasp that "something" had kept me sober. Once I accepted my higher power's role in my recovery, my mind opened up to all the other benefits of recovery. I became a better person and a happier person. The world did not revolve around me! I wish I would have had this book at the time, because I spent a number of years in recovery before I accepted my higher power's role in my life. I am now using this with the people I sponsor, and find it a useful tool!

Thanks Dawn for sharing your experience, strength and hope.

"Who's Your Higher Power?" is a powerful read for anyone in recovery or new to recovery. How I wish this book was available to me when I was just embarking on this remarkable journey. The stories are are authentic as are the people behind them. If you feel you are alone in your experiences with addiction, this book proves you are not.
When starting out on my recovery, 18 years ago, l had a real issue with a "Higher Power". The stories in this book show in a very real way how God is working in our lives.
Thank you Dr. Obrecht for a moving and enlightening read!

28 years ago when I started my journey, I had no connection to any sort of higher power. During this amazing period of my life (sobriety) I have witnessed and experienced literally hundreds of miracles. I never believed these could happen and I want to offer encouragement to people who are still struggling to find their higher power. The stories in this book are true and I believe we can all find a higher power if we ask.

I am not someone who is in recovery but this was a very inspirational book to me. I guess I didn't realize how far down people can find themselves and are still able to recover and lead productive lives. I so enjoyed reading all the personal stories. Thank goodness for people like Dawn to help them find their worth again and realize life really is worth living. I have worked with her briefly a few times and know what a wonderful person she is.

While I have not suffered with addiction I have know many who have. This book
is a wonderful read for all of us who endeavor to build, day by day, a more meaningful relationship
with our Higher Power.
The book flows very well and looks at the "God Issue" from many points of view.
It would be a good book group/Sunday School discussion starter.

I like the flexibility of the authors definition of a "higher power" in this book because everyone's interpretation of a "God" is a little different. But what the author makes clear is that having a "higher power" in helping us through challenging times is very important in seeing us through many situations.
