Hi. My name is Mira Daniels. I am a grateful daughter of God, living one day at a time in recovery from compulsive overeating, co-dependence, and other things. I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I have been attending 12-Step meetings since 1991, and started working the steps in 1999. It has been my privilege to serve as an LDS Addiction Recovery Program (ARP) Group Leader and Coordinator, and meeting facilitator. For me, the ARP program is an awesome way to learn how to develop a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and access the power of His Atonement in daily life. It has changed my life and I cannot imagine living any other way.
As I provide support and guidance to other women in 12-Step recovery I am prompted regarding what to tell them that will help them find physical, emotional and spiritual recovery. Oftentimes what comes to me are metaphors—you might call them parables—that present concepts in ways that are easier to understand and remember.
This blog is a place for me to share those metaphors, excerpts from my written prayer journal, and also some of the things I have learned in the process of living in a state of recovery. I am collecting these posts and reorganizing them for publication in book form. It is my hope that this material will be helpful to you regardless of your faith and whether you are working the steps or not.
