The Monty'man and Co-Host Denver Wolfe speak with and interview members of the recovery community in one of the most powerful examples of unity in the recovery world we have ever seen. Anonymity does not mean secrecy!

Sometimes we are forced for the sake of our recovery & sobriety to walk away from a job, a relationship, a 12 Step support meeting or even a place of worship. These choices we make can save our life but can be extremely emotional and painful to make as they are often met with cold responses and separated from those we love. "When It's Time To Leave" is a vital topic to explore for those of us in recovery. Closing Song: STAND UP by Freebo. www.FreeboMusic.com
Are you the kind of person who is willing to engage in helping others who are hurting? Do you use words and actions that will bring comfort and healing or are you harsh and critical when you see someone less fortunate than yourself? This show speaks to the importance of having compassion as a vital part of our own recovery process. Closing song: "Say Yes to Life" by Kelly Z.
A show to honor my former Co-Host, Sponsor, Brother and Friend, Bruce H.
Join us as we share in the powerful story of experience, strength & hope of one of the recovery communities icons and true old-timers. Hear his story and share in our thoughts as we honor his memory and the legacy he leaves behind.
Join us as we discuss ten of the top issues in life that can impact our recovery in a negative manner.
Some of these may be controversial but the facts show that they all can and do tend to derail us if we are not careful. Closing Song: The Solar Eclipse Song by Mr. R.
Opposite Quality - Inconsistency.
Are you a person others can depend upon? Are you Dependable?
Learning to be true to your word even when it is difficult to carry out what you promised to do. Lifting pressures from those you serve by consistently fulfilling the project they assign to you.
Closing Song: Hold On by Elizabeth Edwards.
The Character Quality of Patience
Opposite Quality - Restlessness.
Learning how to wait to fulfill personal goals. Increasing the time you can wait between achievement and reward. Learning to accept difficult situations as from God without giving Him a deadline to remove them.
Closing Song: Stronger Than Old Memories by Jamie Marich
The Character Quality of Cautiousness
Opposite Quality - Rashness, Carelessness.
Learning what situations may put your recovery at risk. Gaining adequate counsel before making decisions. Seeing future consequences of present actions. Learning to detect and avoid toxic people. Recognizing temptations and fleeing from them.
Closing Song: The Game by JJ McCabe
The Character Quality of Meekness
Opposite Quality - Anger.
Learning how to yield rights and possessions to God. Responding properly to anger when others violate personal rights. Learning to earn the right to be heard rather than demanding a hearing
Closing Song: Hillybilly Higher Power by Michael Purington and the Messangers.
The Character Quality of Security
Opposite Quality - Anxiety.
Learning to build affections around the person of your creator (God). Learning to appreciate temporal possessions without making them the focus of your delight. In our recovery, it's vital that we learn where to put our trust, our security and our passions. If these are dependent upon the wrong things we run the risk of relapse.
Closing Song: Embrace The Day by Jackie Heyen.
