The Celebrate Recovery booklet is a 28-day booklet perfect to share with someone you know who is on the road to recovery. These devotional readings provide encouragement and reinforcement that can be invaluable when the struggle feels overwhelming.
Celebrate Recovery is not just a program, but a means toward lasting life change, and the key to recovery is to keep the eight Christ-centered Life Principles alive. As readers engage with the devotions, they will discover the principles more firmly cemented in their daily thinking and actions and will find ongoing support and hope for the road ahead. Each powerful devotion is a reminder of God’s goodness, grace, and redemption and will be an inspiration to anyone struggling with old hurts, habits, and hang-ups. Start where you are. Begin today.
