“We are going to know a new freedom and a new happiness. We will not regret the past nor wish to shut the door on it. We will comprehend the word serenity and we will know peace. Our whole attitude and outlook upon life will change.” —From The Promises, Alcoholics Anonymous: The Story of How Many Thousands of Men and Women Have Recovered from Alcoholism, 3rd ed.

“Jenifer’s book is a must for your morning meditation or night stand, or both. She writes with such clarity about the journey we share in light of the “promises” made to us in the Big Book. You will enjoy every morsel of this book. I did.” —Karen Casey, PhD., author of Each Day A New Beginning
Living the Promises is a personal, warm 365 reader includes quotes and exhortations, celebrations and lists of gratitudes, and all manner of real-life inspirations. Each month begins with a promise and each day explores that promise.

Jenifer Madson shares her ongoing story of recovery: what it was like, what happened, and what it is like now, not with “drunkalogues,” but with stories and sayings and strategies that will help you or someone you know get sober, stay sober, and live a life of joy.

Living the Promises is the first meditation book to be based specifically on the 12 promises of the Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous, and is the perfect daily guide for anyone in recovery seeking peace and healing.

Jenifer Madson is an award-winning author, speaker, and success coach, whose unique brand of humor and insight has helped people from at-risk youth to Fortune 100 executives awaken to their highest potential. She lives in New York City, and when she’s not working or traveling, can be found roaming the city in search of inspiration and the perfect bagel. Photo credit: Jinsey Dauk
