Episode 08: Recovery Resources (Books)

In this mini-podcast episode, Tim Mavergeorge and Doug discuss some great recovery books as resources for those seeking help and healing. Our spiritual path needs guidance from those that have gone before us, so they share a few resources that can be beneficial to those looking for something better.

This list isn’t designed to be exhaustive, but it should allow those to have a starting point for those looking to replace certain behaviors with reading resources that can lead to increased positive relationships, thinking, and living.
