A Year of Positive Thinking: Daily Inspiration, Wisdom, and Courage, by Cyndie Spiegel


Each Day a New Beginning: Daily Meditations for Women (Paperback)
by Karen Casey

"These meditations, one for each day of the year, speak to the common experiences, shared struggles, and unique strengths of women, especially those seeking support and spiritual growth in recovery. Each day's message begins with a quotation--from such exceptional women as Agatha Christie, Annie Dillard, Beverly Sills, Helen Keller, Maria Montessori, Adrienne Rich, Katharine Hepburn, Amelia Earhart, and many more--and ends with an affirmation, marshaling the feminine courage and spirit, wisdom and wit that make every day count."--from book description at

by Hazelden Meditations

Walk in Dry Places by Mel B.

"For many people involved in Twelve Step recovery, there is always a need for the basics. Walk in Dry Places provides this solid insight and support. Written in the classic style of early meditation books, Walk in Dry Places refocuses on the basics of Twelve Step recovery. The meditations are written in a clear and graceful voice and convey the gentle, no-nonsense attitude of an old timer.

"Each page contains a daily recovery topic along with an insightful exploration of the day's topic and a one sentence 'Goal for the Day.' Full of basic AA meeting philosophy, Walk in Dry Places offers daily support to anyone seeking help in staying sober one day at a time."--book description at



Twenty-Four Hours a Day

"Since 1954, Twenty-Four Hours a Day has become a stable force in the recovery of many alcoholics throughout the world. With over six and a half million copies in print (the original text has been revised), this 'little black book' offers daily thoughts, meditations, and prayers for living a clean and sober life. A spiritual resource with practical applications to fit our daily lives.

"'For yesterday is but a dream, and tomorrow is only a vision' is part of the Sanskrit proverb quoted at the beginning of the book which has become one of the basic building blocks for a life of sobriety. In addition to a thought, meditation and prayer for each day of the year, this handy, pocket-sized volume also contains the Serenity Prayer and the 12 Steps and 12 Traditions of Alcoholics Anonymous. It is a simple, yet effective way to help us relate the Twelve Steps to everyday life and helps us find the power not to take that first drink each day."--book description at
