Publisher's Summary

Eight concrete, well-explained choices are the foundation for this life-changing program:

1. Admitting Need - The Reality Step
2. Getting Help - The Hope Step
3. Letting Go - The Commitment Step
4. Coming Clean - The Housecleaning Step
5. Making Changes - The Transformation Step
6. Repairing Relationships - The Relationship Step
7. Maintaining Momentum - The Maintenance Step
8. Recycling Pain - The Sharing Step

Promising freedom from life's hurts, hang-ups, and habits, this life-changing program assures listeners that true happiness can be theirs, if they will chose it; for happiness truly is a choice. This promise of happiness is based on eight statements from the truest of all books - God's Word - and from the most revered Teacher of all time, Jesus Christ. In the well-known and beloved Beatitudes, Jesus shares eight statements that reveal God's pathway to wholeness, growth, spiritual maturity, and happiness. These eight statements are the basis for the eight tried-and-proved choices outlined in Life's Healing Choices.

Rather than wallowing in the past or focusing on painful memories, these eight choices provide listeners with an optimistic view to the future and real hope for lasting change. Emphasizing personal responsibility, listeners are taught how to face up to their poor choices and learn how to distinguish between what is in their control and what is not. They are then equipped to make new choices and take control where they can. Spiritual commitment is fostered and action steps are detailed.

With an encouraging tone, step-by-step guides, and biblically based teaching, listeners will find real answers, real hope, and a real future - one choice at a time.

Great motivation

Although I like the book, I didn't know it was all about addiction to drugs and alcohol. I wish I knew that beforehand.

Rock Solid

This is something that will get under your skin and change your life forever -for the better.

Written to lead into Celebrate Recovery, it is an easy read but by no means shallow. Don't read this if you can't get real with yourself.

A survival guide ...

Would you listen to Life's Healing Choices again? Why?

Absolutely! If you relate to the title and concepts within this book you'll continue to listen to it for months to come.

What did you like best about this story?

I've struggled, like many of us, to learn how to apply God, Jesus and the Holly Spirit to the day-to-day challenges of life. John Baker did a phenomenal job translating scripture to help me break free from the bondage of my past.

What about John Baker’s performance did you like?

He does a great job relating the content of this book in a clear concise manner.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

This book moved me to make a commitment to begin a life long journey to deal with my hurts, hangups and habits.

Any additional comments?

John Baker is the founder of Celebrate Recovery, which is a Christ centered recovery program. If you're looking to make, "Life's Healing Choices" this book and CR could be the answer to your prayers. I recommend listening to this book and learning more about CR.God Bless you on your journey.

My name is Cindy and I'm a Believer

Even though this is basically the same as the sermons that Rick Warren did on the 8 principles of Celebrate Recovery, it's still great information. The "Actions" that accompany each principle are very thought provoking and they alone are worth the money/credit! I have become a huge fan of John Baker, Rick Warren, Saddleback Church, and Celebrate Recovery. I don't know a single soul who wouldn't benefit from the help and information in this book.

Changed my life

This is the second time I have read this book. It helped heal places in my life I didn’t even realize needed healing. This book helped me forgive others and myself. It also helped me release lots of anger and hurt. I highly recommend this book to everyone who seems to be having a difficult time in life.

Power in Healing

What I loved about this book was its ability to convey transparency to me as its audience and speak to the inner being to come forward,

This book should be shared with every and anyone.

Healing is not an easy process; but if those who have and are going thru the process can just hang in there; join energy & forces, the world can be impacted by the motivational examples of the Celebratory Healing process that individuals have to make..

Thank You!

Healing

Would you listen to Life's Healing Choices again? Why?

Healing comes from hearing. Hearing the words that G-d has through this book and in HIS Word (Bible), has been life changing, life healing.

Hard going but worth it

As a recovering alcoholic and drug addict this book and course helped me get back on the straight and narrow. It wasn't easy but it was worth it.
