    About the book

    Do you struggle with a hurt, addiction, or compulsive behavior? GOOD NEWS: There is hope for a solution!

    True Stories of People in Recovery: Finding Healing from Life’s Hurts, Addictions, and Compulsive Behaviors shares how thirteen people who were in the pit of despair found freedom and now live abundant lives. Some struggled with addiction, others with depression and suicidal thoughts, some with codependency. All share a common solution: a real, passionate love relationship with Jesus Christ. By following their examples, you too can:

    • Break out of denial and find ultimate healing
    • Build new, healthy relationships and restore broken ones
    • Discover your true purpose through a love relationship with Jesus Christ
    • Live the honest, authentic, abundant life
    • Experience the joy of helping others as you share your experience, strength, and hope

    Enjoyed the storytelling in the book. I felt like I was part of the story and a witness to the Transforming Power of God! It caused me to rejoice and tell others that our lives matter to the King of Kings!

    “Coming from a background of addiction, as I read through these testimonies, I could completely relate. I love the truth, the honesty, and the raw details of what it is truly like to be lost in the dark pit of addiction … There are so many self-help books out there on addiction, alcoholism, over eating, etc. But those are self-help books. Never have I been able to come out of addiction through “self-help”. It truly takes the miraculous transforming power of God to heal you from the brokeness in your soul that leads each person to their addiction. Reading each of these testimonies reminded me of the goodness of God, and how only through His power can we become a new creation in Christ … If you are struggling an addiction, or if you are in recovery, I urge you to read this book … What a surreal and fantastic book!”
