He Did Deliver Me from Bondage

LDS 12 Step Recovery

Using the Book of Mormon and the Principles of the Gospel of Jesus Christ as They Correlate with the Twelve-Step Program to Overcome Compulsive/Addictive Behavior and Other Problems

This best-selling book is about awakening — becoming a whole new creature in Christ by putting God first, ridding one’s self of pride, and developing a relationship with God that is closer and sweeter than any other. It’s about being delivered from the bondage of lies, recovered by the Spirit of Truth, Jesus Christ.

This study guide assists Latter-day Saints in understanding the principles of the gospel that harmonize so perfectly with the principles in each of the Twelve Steps of addiction recovery. Each chapter is woven around a powerful collection of Book of Mormon scriptures and quotes from latter-day prophets. Thousands of people have already been blessed with increased recovery from otherwise insurmountable problems — addiction, compulsive behaviors, depression, trauma, abuse in childhood or as an adult, as well as the loss of a loved one — by focusing these true principles on their particular challenges. He Did Deliver Me from Bondage conveys a profound testimony that the Atonement of Jesus Christ is equal to any challenge we face.

He Did Deliver Me From Bondage had its origin in research Colleen did looking for the principles found in the 12 Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous in the Book of Mormon. Colleen reasoned that if these principles that had helped so many alcoholics and other addicts find recovery, they must be part of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Her search uncoverd a multitude of verses teaching the principles found in each of the steps. Although there wasn’t room to use them all, these verses formed the framework for He Did Deliver Me From Bondage.
