Catholic Momcast GIVEAWAY: Autographed Copy of "The Twelve Steps and the Sacraments"

4

Did you catch Catholic Momcast episode #10, where Danielle Bean and Lisa Hendey interviewed Scott Weeman of CatholicInRecovery.com?

Now it’s time for that giveaway that was mentioned: an autographed copy of Scott Weeman’s new book from Ave Maria Press, The Twelve Steps and the Sacraments.

From the publisher:

In the first book to directly integrate the Twelve Steps with the practice of Catholicism, Scott Weeman, founder and director of Catholic in Recovery, pairs his personal story with compassionate straight talk to show Catholics how to bridge the commonly felt gap between the Higher Power of twelve-step programs and the merciful God that he rediscovered in the heart of the sacraments.

Weeman entered sobriety from alcohol and drugs on October 10, 2011, and he’s made it his full-time ministry to help others who struggle with various types of addiction to find spiritual wholeness through Catholic in Recovery, an organization he founded and directs.

In The Twelve Steps and the Sacraments, Weeman candidly tackles the struggle he and other addicts have with getting to know intimately the unnamed Higher Power of recovery. He shares stories of his compulsion to find a personal relationship with God and how his tentative steps back to the Catholic Church opened new doors of healing and brought him surprising joy as he came to know Christ in the sacraments.

Catholics in recovery and those moving toward it, as well as the people who love them will recognize Weeman’s story and his spiritual struggle to personally encounter God. He tells us how:

  • Baptism helps you admit powerlessness over an unmanageable problem, face your desperate need for God, and choose to believe in and submit to God’s mercy.
  • Reconciliation affirms and strengthens the  hard work of examining your life, admitting wrongs, and making amends.
  • The Eucharist provides ongoing sustenance and draws you to the healing power of Christ.
  • The graces of Confirmation strengthen each person to keep moving forward and to share the good news of recovery and new life in Christ.

Weeman’s words are boldly challenging and brimming with compassion and through them you will discover inspiration, hope, sage advice, and refreshingly practical help.

Here’s your chance to win an autographed copy of The Twelve Steps and the Sacraments! Readers from the USA and Canada are welcome to enter this giveaway.
