Working the Steps: Step 12
December... the perfect month to focus on Step 12:

When I was homeschooling my children in the 90's we had The 21 Rules of This House by Gregg Harris on our refrigerator. (still do by the way) One of my favorites is Rule #11:When we have something nice to share, we share it.
What better gift to give someone who's hurting than your story out of bondage into freedom!
This Christmas season, give hope to someone; take an opportunity to share what God has done in your life. I believe people are more receptive to The Good News this time of year than any other.
For we ourselves were once foolish, disobedient, and wrong... slaves to passions and pleasures of all kinds... But when the kindness and love of God our Savior was revealed, he saved us... God poured out the Holy Spirit abundantly on us through Jesus Christ our Savior, so that by his grace we might be put right with God and come into possession of the eternal life we hope for. This is a true saying. ~Titus 3:3-8
