Christian addiction recovery stories
Looking for Christian books dealing with addiction?
Check out Sober Mercies. It’s for real, and will leave you feeling uplifted and hopeful.
Heather Kopp has written a well paced, from-the-heart memoir about the craziness of addiction and the relief of recovery. Her full disclosure of most embarrassing, shameful, and darkest secrets are lightened with humor and hope. It’s the perfect combination for anyone searching to relate and needing help as a Christian dealing with addiction.
Why this particular Christian addiction recovery story?
I think that the power of Kopp’s memoir is in its rawness. She talks openly about the spiritual and theological struggle of being a Christian in addiction. And how she resolved both concepts of sin and sickness by coming to understand addiction as a illness of body, mind, and spirit. She offers a message of hope and help. And in reading Sober Mercies, I feel both less alone and reminded of the important part of addiction recovery: it’s about work on self, work that is on-going.
What’s your story?
While this post is uncharacteristically short, I really feel that you just need to go and read Sober Mercies on your own. While it’s a Christian addiction story about how one woman worked through issues of faith and came to peace with her past, it’s also offers a solution for how to get through similar troubles. In the end, you’re not alone…and you have a story yourself! So, please share your story here. We respond to all comments personally.
