• Be consistent in attendance of recovery meetings and counseling appointments.
  • Do your homework. It’s helpful to pre-read what will be covered in your recovery group or one-on-one.
  • Do your devotions daily. Keep a journal of the thoughts and feelings that you experience while doing your devotions. Share what you journal with your group and counselor and mentor/sponsor.
  • Maintain an attitude of openness the best of you ability,. You never know when, how, or through whom, God may be speaking to you.
  • Don’t worry about making an impression on others. Be honest in meetings about how you feel, any successes or failures that you may experience.
  • Expect something new. This is a new experience for all of us.
  • Be patient with yourself and with others.

This month's step
We became entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character.

This week's scripture
You're blessed when you get your inside world--your mind and heart--put right. Then you can see God in the outside world.
Matthew 5:8 The Message

This week's quote
"Since most of us are born with an abundance of natural desires, it isn’t strange that we often let these far exceed their intended purpose. When they drive us blindly, or we willfully demand that they supply us with more satisfactions or pleasures that are possible or due us, that is the point at which we depart from the degree of perfection that God wishes for us here on earth. That is the measure of our character defects or if you wish, of our sins."
