The much-awaited work of A.A. Historian Dick B. on the origins of each of the Twelve Steps. First and foremost a history of each step. How each of A.A.'s co-founders contributed to each of the Steps. It looks at the original Akron A.A. program which had no "Steps" and took its basic ideas from the Bible and its principles and practices primarily from the United Christian Endeavor Movement of Dr. Bob's youth. Then--source by source--it looks at each Step as it was impacted upon by a particular contributor. The Bible, Oxford Group, Rev. Sam Shoemaker, Dr. Bob's wife Anne Smith, the so-called "Six Steps, then the other sources. This book is an historical study of the roots of each Step; and it can be used for individual and group study of the Steps in a very meaningful way.It is also a guide. A guide to understanding, and a guide to taking each Step. It also shows you how to take the Steps exactly as directed in A.A.'s Big Book. It suggests how you might look at each Step in terms of the contributions to that Step's lanugage and meaning by each of its sources. Finally, it provides Christians and other students with a means of considering, learning, and "taking" each of the Steps in light of that Step's biblical and historical roots--with the Big Book, Bible, and history at hand.When you are through, you will have a perspective of the real spiritual utility of the Twelve Steps in a believer's world, despite the secularization and universalism that are diluting all Twelve Step programs and the language used in connection with the Steps. For example, "God as we understood Him" historically and biblically means Almighty God, the Creator, as He is understood by the newcomer at the time of taking Steps 3 and 11. So too "powerless" in Step 1 is presented in its historical context ("I was licked") rather than in some puzzling linquistic context, seldom understood or unraveled.You'll know and guide the taking of the Twelve Steps as they were intended to be understood and as you never did before.

Women on Ice

Type: BOOK - Published: 2013-01-15 - Publisher: Rutgers University Press

Methamphetamine (ice, speed, crystal, shard) has been called epidemic in the United States. Yet few communities were ready for increased use of methamphetamine by suburban women. Women on Ice is the first book to study exclusively the lives of women who use the drug and its effects on their families. In-depth interviews with women in the suburban counties of one of the largest metropolitan areas in the U.S. chronicle the details of their initiation into methamphetamine, the turning points into problematic drug use, and for a few, their escape from lives veering out of control. Their life course and drug careers are analyzed in relation to the intersecting influences of social roles, relationships, social/political structures, and political trends. Examining the effects of punitive drug policy, inadequate social services, and looming public health risks, including HIV/AIDS and hepatitis C, the book gives voice to women silenced by shame. Boeri introduces new and developing concepts in the field of addiction studies and proposes policy changes to more broadly implement initiatives that address the problems these women face. She asserts that if we are concerned that the war on drugs is a war on drug users, this book will alert us that it is also a war on suburban families.

"Nobody understands the science of excellence like David Crouch." - Stephen M.R. Covey Creating excellence is an applied science. Drawing upon the experience of successful teams and their leaders, "12 Steps to Excellence" captures the essence of team excellence in an easy-to-execute method anyone can employ. Building a great team is a discipline that can be learned. How do you talk about the work you do? What’s the main thing your team is trying to accomplish? What do you value so strongly that you’re not willing to compromise along the way? How do customers define your quality and how do you measure it? Are you and everyone on your team building strong customer relationships? Are you impressing your customer so much that they will voluntarily and passionately talk positively to others about you? Is everyone on your team fully engaged in the work? Are you making positive forward progress? Do you have a viable strategic plan? Are you tapping into the Pareto Principle of Leadership Excellence? Can you measure all of these things? In his warm and eloquent style, David shows us step-by-step how to build a great team and organization. He gives us the framework, language, and process so that we not only have knowledge and understanding of the steps required, we also have the tools to achieve it.

This book is not only for Native American Indians; it’s for all races, but in the Native American way. Nor is this book directed to any one particular recovering group. The disease of addiction is not a prejudice disease. neither is recovery. Everything we do in recovery should be for self, because everything we do effects our opinion of ourselves. The results of sobriety should be used to help others in recovery. The secret of success is consistency. That’s why in recovery they keep saying, “Keep coming back.” To sacrifice is to gain, in giving up the past for the future. Wisdom is not what you put yourself through but what life puts you through. Accepting recovery is accepting responsibility for one’s actions. This is why we must know where the ripples will go before we cast the stone into the pond. To do so, one must take a journey within the four directions, in order to find the balance of their spiritual inner and outer self. The results should be given away to help others in recovery so that we may keep what we have learned and earned, so that we will be able to have a deeper yes and a much stronger no, and realize that the message is in silence, the deepest answer is in patience, and a clear mind will precipitate patience.
