Celebrate Recovery Updated Leader's Guide: A Recovery Program Based On Eight Principles From The Beatitudes

Congratulations on making one of the most rewarding choices of your life!  Your decision to lead the Celebrate Recovery program affords you the matchless experience of seeing broken people transformed by the power of Christ.  As a leader, you are about to make a difference in the most direct way possible – helping others discover hope and change they had thought was beyond their reach.  Your own life, too, will never be the same as you see your investment of time and care returned in ways you’ve never imagined. This leader’s guide contains testimonies, a 90-day strategy, and gives you everything you need to facilitate the life-changing Celebrate Recovery lessons.  We’ve done our best to simplify your job.  The clear, easy-to-follow format minimizes your preparation time and virtually walks you through each meeting.  Besides the ability to follow basic instructions, a willing heart is all you need to successfully conduct this proven, life-changing program. Plus, learn about the all new, revolutionary step study The Journey Continues with four new participant’s guides to deepen each person’s recovery journey. Realize I’m not God; I admit that I am powerless to control my tendency to do the wrong thing and that my life is unmanageable. (Step 1)           “Happy are those who know that they are spiritually poor.” Earnestly believe that God exists, that I matter to Him and that He has the power to help me recover. (Step 2)           “Happy are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.” Consciously choose to commit all my life and will to Christ’s care and control. (Step 3)           “Happy are the meek.” Openly examine and confess my faults to myself, to God, and to someone I trust. (Steps 4 and 5)           “Happy are the pure in heart.” Voluntarily submit to any and all changes God wants to make in my life and humbly ask Him to remove my character defects. (Steps 6 and 7)           “Happy are those whose greatest desire is to do what God requires” Evaluate all my relationships. Offer forgiveness to those who have hurt me and make amends for harm I’ve done to others when possible, except when to do so would harm them or others. (Steps 8 and 9)           “Happy are the merciful.” “Happy are the peacemakers” Reserve a time with God for self-examination, Bible reading, and prayer in order to know God and His will for my life and to gain the power to follow His will. (Steps 10 and 11) Yield myself to God to be used to bring this Good News to others, both by my example and my words. (Step 12)           “Happy are those who are persecuted because they do what God requires.”

As a five year leader in a Celebrate Recovery program it is really helpful for every leader to have a copy of this book. I feel running the program as designed is the best recipe for success. If leaders periodically review the contents at the front and back of this book it will help re-center them on the basics of the program. The 26 lessons in the center of the book not only are used throughout the year but also give leaders material for helping those in need who come to the program.I've been a Christian for almost 20 years. I've evangelized for about 10 of those years including overseas door-to-door mission trips. Nothing has been as rewarding or successful in helping bring people to Christ as Celebrate Recovery in my life.

This book has been very helpful as I colead a Step Study.I would highly recommend it to anyone leading a Step Studyor small CR group,. The additonal information on the 8Principles will be used often in our group. The beginning ofthe book has much useful information for anyone thinking ofstarting a new Celebrate Recovery Group.

I love Celebrate Recovery, but be careful. The Kindle version is the 2005 version, not the 2016 version. This is tricky since the 2016 version brings you to the 2005 version if you select Kindle version. Both are great books, but if you wanted the ebook of the most up to date leader guide, you'll need to look elsewhere.

Not so great for domestic violence victims since THEY are not addicted to being abused. It would be terrific for a men's abuser support group to aid in helping them see where their violence comes from and ways to stop.

Back in 2007, our group stared with only participants booklets translated into Chinese and a handbook of just a few pages. Yet the result of healing is tremendous! Now that it is revised and have such a huge Leader's Guide, I would like to check it out to prepare myself one day be the small group leader. I was one day shy of my certificate and would want to find out what I had missed and what more can the program offer to people of needs for recovery in different program.

I am recovering alcoholic with 22 years working 12 step programs. I am so excited to start CR at our church. John Baker and Saddleback church spared no cost to produce a quality "Christ centered" program. I would be proud to invite my 12 Step program friends to come to CR.

I hope to begin this program at our church. Faith based recovery works. I have found in this book a solution to offerthose who want it. I have heardIt said "Recovery is forthose who want it notfor those who need it." If one wants it here is a way to lead a life in theLight.

Everyone, and i do mean EVERYONE should go through Celebrate Recover. This program has changed my life more than any other I have every come across. It of course requires the commitment to stay & do the WHOLE process for healing.
