He Restores My Soul: A 12 Step Journey through Psalm 23 follows the biblical path of recovery with Jesus at the center. The workbooks bring alive the connection between what actually works in real life struggles with addiction and co-dependency and what God has revealed to us. The bible study in a very practical way takes one through the emotions, issues, and barriers that usually surfaces as one walks through the Steps. By each line of David's 23rd Psalm, we experience the depth of our Shepherd's love for us. We allow Him to support our journey towards optimal health and wholeness.
Disovery, Decision, Desires
"He Restores My Soul: A 12 Step Journey through Psalm 23 -"Discovery: Book One," reveals the awareness and 'discovery' that our personal resources are limited in the recovery process of addiction, codependency, and other self defeating behaviors. It concentrates on the importance of placing God in the center of our lives to lead and influence true success in recovery and healthy living. Discovery- Book One, takes the reader through Steps 1, 2, and 3 and applies the first three lines of Psalm 23 so that we come to understand that we need a shepherd and that He will restore our sanity. The discovery found in the first three Steps in the care of The Good Shepherd is life changing!
Decision: Book Two" continues where "Discovery: Book One" concluded with curriculum and bible study to study Steps 4, 5, 6 and 7 and the continuation of David's Psalm 23. David's pslam provides the serenity of quiet waters as we write our inventory. His 8th line takes us to the valley of the shadow of death where we work Step 8 and are prompted to ask God to remove our shortcomings. Dumping them in the valley prepares for a lighter load out of the Valley and into establishing healthier relationships with friends and family.
"Desires: Book Three" focuses on relationships and ongoing recovery. The desires of our heart often includes the ability to get along with people while still honoring who God created us to be. We desire balance. "Surely goodness and lovingkindness shall follow me all the days of my life, and I dwell in the house of the Lord forever."
