Twelve Steps to Your Healing, by the Rev. Dr. Sheila McKeithen, is based on the author's personal experiences and healing testimony. After receiving the prognosis in 1986 that she had less than six days to live, Rev. Sheila set the intention to prove in her own life the spiritual principles that she had learned through the Universal Foundation for Better Living. She worked those principles, and they worked for her. Now, nearly 30 years later, Rev. Sheila shares the biblical truths and thought habits that she credits for restoring her to wholeness. But Twelve Steps to Your Healing is more than just Rev. Sheila's story. It is your invitation to join her on the journey to greater health, joy, and prosperity by learning to change the unproductive patterns in your own life. Rev. Sheila's message of encouragement is that you are special, and God's will for you is absolute good. Her questions to you are: Are your daily choices working for you or against you? Are your thoughts and feelings about what others did or did not do supporting you in fulfilling your goals, or are they sabotaging your opportunities for success? Are feelings of disappointment, anger, jealousy, and fear eating at your inward parts and causing all kinds of health problems? If so, it is time to make new choices and think new thoughts. Each of the twelve biblical statements reviewed in Twelve Steps to Your Healing is a true statement about you. As you work through them one by one, you will begin to see yourself and your life with newfound clarity. If you work with them consistently and personalize them to address your present circumstances, the heavy baggage of unforgiveness, self-doubt, fear, frustration, resentment, anger, and worry will fall away, leaving you free to travel your life journey with faithful expectation of good. Your quest is to fill your mind and heart with these words of Truth so much so that they ooze forth in your life and affairs in visible ways. The journey you are about to take is a spiritual one. It will either introduce or re-introduce you to your True self, your spiritual SELF. The spiritual SELF is the aspect of you that can't be fooled by symptoms, diagnoses, or prognoses. It is the You that understands that you are more than you've expressed up until this moment. It knows only the best for you and supports you in your desire to be whole. It knows that God loves you and always will love you. It also knows that spiritually speaking, health is your birthright, a gift from God that you can claim beginning now. This book offers you the opportunity to take a spiritual adventure in faith. This adventure is not about placing blame on others. Instead, it is designed to help you become very clear that, as a spiritual being, you can choose to unpack the baggage of negativity and travel light through life as you embrace your true identity as a child of God. When you are clear about who you are as a spiritual being, that knowledge alone will open the way for the errors of the past, be they yours or another's, to be purged so that they are no longer a hindrance to you. Whether the healing you seek is for yourself or others, whether it is for the physical body, emotions, relationships, finances, or any other life experience, it all begins in the mind. And you have the power to change your mind. Read the book. Learn the steps. Take the steps. Take the steps. Take the steps! Then prepare to receive your healing.

With the artistry of a memoirist, Thérèse Jacobs-Stewart draws on her personal story and an impressive range of knowledge in psychology, spirituality, and the Twelve Steps to show us the way out of the morass of pain and confusion that addiction creates. Mindfulness and the 12 Steps is moving and inspiring, full of practical guidance. --KEVIN GRIFFIN, author of One Breath at a Time: Buddhism and the Twelve Steps and A Burning Desire: Dharma God and the Path of Recovery FOR THOSE OF US IN RECOVERY, Mindfulness and the 12 Steps offers a fresh approach to developing our own spiritual path through the Buddhist practice of mindfulness, or bringing one's awareness to focus on the present moment. We can revisit each of the Twelve Steps, exploring the interplay of ideas between mindfulness and Twelve Step traditions--from the idea of living "one day at a time" to the emphasis on prayer and meditation--and learn to incorporate mindfulness into our path toward lifelong sobriety. Through reflections, questions for inquiry, and stories from Buddhist teachers and others who practice mindfulness in recovery, Mindfulness and the 12 Steps will help us awaken new thinking and insights into what it means to live fully--body, mind, and spirit--in the here and now.

You have an enemy . . . and he’s dead set on destroying all you hold dear and keeping you from experiencing abundant life in Christ. What’s more, his approach to disrupting your life and discrediting your faith isn’t general or generic, not a one-size-fits-all. It’s specific. Personalized. Targeted. So this book is your chance to strike back. With prayer. With a weapon that really works. Each chapter will guide you in crafting prayer strategies that hit the enemy where it hurts, letting him know you’re on to him and that you won’t back down. Because with every new strategy you build, you’re turning the fiercest battles of life into precise strikes against him and his handiwork, each one infused with the power of God’s Spirit. New York Times bestselling author Priscilla Shirer, widely known for her international speaking, teaching, and writing ministries, brings her new role from the 2015 film War Room into the real lives of today’s women, addressing the topics that affect them most: renewing their passion, refocusing their identity, negotiating family strife, dealing with relentless regrets, navigating impossible schedules, succeeding against temptation, weathering their worst fears, uprooting bitterness, and more. Each chapter exposes the enemy’s cruel, crafty intentions in all kinds of these areas, then equips and encourages you to write out your own personalized prayer strategies on tear-out sheets you can post and pray over yourself and your loved ones on a regular basis. Fervent is a hands-on, knees-down, don’t-give-up action guide to practical, purposeful praying.
