Patterns of Light, Volume 1
LDS 12 Step Recovery
Discovering Patterns of Recovery within the Book of Mormon and Twelve Step Literature
Patterns of Light by Colleen C. Harrison, the author of He Did Deliver Me from Bondage, weaves together selected scriptures from the Book of Mormon and quotations from Alcoholics Anonymous (the AA Big Book) and Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions to provide a 28 day in-depth study of the principles of recovery found in the Twelve Steps.
The principles of the Twelve Steps are a proven method for coming into “conscious contact” with God. When combined with the power of the Book of Mormon, the result is a deepening spirituality within anyone who uses this course of study.
Of this work, Colleen states:
I must confess the whole truth about this work: it is a gift to me. It has changed my life and given me a practical, proven method of heart-deep repentance. “Working the Steps” has led me to “come unto Christ” (Moroni 10:32). This process of recovery has changed my heart, my mind, my life. And in response to this miracle, I have been filled with the desire to share it with my fellow Latter-day Saints, that you might find this same path to recovery.
The truth is that all mortals—addicted or not—need to learn how to repent and find recovery (redemption). I testify that these true principles have the power to bring us recovery from mortality’s greatest challenges. When focused on our relationship with Jesus Christ, they can literally restore us to a state of “sobriety” and “sanity” that only He can give.

I started counseling with a woman in LDS Social Services and the first thing she wanted me to do was get your book. My testimony is on fire again and not just smoldering in the ashes.
I want to express my deepest thanks for He Did Deliver Me from Bondage. It has truly helped me along a road to returning to my Heavenly Father and Savior! I’m on my second time through.

I was at [the] truly darkest hour of my life and spiraling down. I was afraid it was going to be the end of me. He Did Deliver Me breathed so much love, hope, strength, power and peace. I learned how to obtain these things from the Lord.
